  • In first, Saudi woman to drive race car in kingdom

    In first, Saudi woman to drive race car in kingdom.

    Reema Juffali says she never expected to race professionally in Saudi Arabia, which lifted ban on female drivers last year: ‘The fact that I am doing it… is amazing’


    Juffali, who hails from the western city of Jeddah and was educated in the United States, will participate as what organizers call a “VIP” guest driver, becoming the first Saudi woman to race on home soil.

    Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia’s sports authority chief, has touted it as a “watershed” moment for the kingdom.

    “Reema will have thousands cheering her on, as a professional racing driver,” the prince told AFP.
    Better late than never.

    Good for her!


    I just hope she is better than Danika, and wins a few.
