A great benefit of being one of the less popular Grand Prix is that the logistics are so much simpler. That goes for the venue but also for the fans. Major traffic delays, long waits for the shuttle bus and extortionate parking are nowhere to be seen in Jeddah. Besides some minor teething problems that a new Grand Prix venue often has, for fans travelling to and from the Jeddah circuit, the experience has been, for the most part, a breeze.

Local Travel: Getting to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit 

For fans arriving under their own steam, ample parking is provided within walking distance of the circuit. For anyone else, there are dedicated drop-off areas for taxis and rideshare. 

Driving to and Parking at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit

There are separate parking areas at the Jeddah circuit, designed to allow the most efficient flow of fans to and from the track. Follow the information here to access your correct parking area. All grandstand and hospitality ticket holders will receive free parking passes, but picking up parking badges before the F1 weekend is essential. 

To get your parking permit, drop into the Visitor Centre (open from 12pm to 12am) with your e-tickets. After scanning your QR code, you’ll be issued a badge to display on your vehicle, allowing access to the area. Buying parking passes on any day of the event won’t be possible, and any vehicle must have a pass to be allowed to enter the area around the circuit.

  • General Admission: General Admission Parking, Prince Sultan Street (includes a free shuttle to the circuit gates). 
  • Central Grandstand: Central Parking, King Abdul Aziz Street. 
  • Main Grandstand: Main Parking, King Abdul Aziz Road. 
  • Wheelchair users: Person With Disability Parking, North or South Gate (Magic Carpet Roundabout).
  • Marina Ticket Holders: Teal Parking, North Gate (global roundabout) from Al Salam Street. 
  • Paddock Club Black: Paddock Club Parking, King Abdul Aziz Street. 
  • Premium Hospitality: Premium Hospitality Parking, South Gate (Magic Carpet Roundabout).

Uber, Careem and Taxi

Any car without a parking permit, including taxis and rideshare vehicles, won’t be able to get close to the circuit on Grand Prix weekend. Anyone wishing to be dropped off at the track must use the dedicated drop-off zone. 

The area designated for this is next to the Red Sea Mall. For being picked up after midnight, use the site beside the Red Parking zone.
