The Jeddah Corniche Circuit sits on the shores of the Red Sea, between the island mosque and new marina, 12km from the centre of the country’s second largest city. The race will take place at night, with floodlights erected around the 6.175 circuit and there will be many additional entertainments laid on for visitors, including concerts from international stars such as Justin Beiber.
