Shop. Dine. Fun: Amazing Events of Diriyah Season 2022
Forget about the change of seasons, do you know the 11 Saudi Seasons?
Saudi Arabian cities are under great cultural restoration as part of the Saudi Seasons. Since the launch of the Saudi Seasons in 2019, each season is meant for back-to-back activities across sports, culture, music, and much more in each of the host cities. Now it’s “Diriyah Season!”
The Diriyah Season 2022 offers a series of unmissable events held at Diriyah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Diriyah Season 2022 is running from October 20, 2022, until February 22, 2023, under the theme of “City of Earth.” Also, with the Diriyah Gate, a historic development project, the city is set to become the cultural center of the country.
The Diriyah Season is primarily a celebration of ancient culture and heritage in the city itself. Also, it brings in sports fans and people looking for entertainment from all over the world because it hosts interesting events like musical performances, sports competitions, and many more.
Events of the Season you shouldn’t Miss
#1 Formula E or Diriyah E-Prix
Wondering why it is Formula E and not Formula 1? Formula E is a racing event that uses only electric race cars; on the other hand, Formula 1 features cars with internal combustion engines that are powered by fuel.
It’s the moment of old meeting new as the world’s first fully-electric international single-seater racing series skirts around the ancient surroundings of Diriyah.
The 2.495-kilometer Diriyah Circuit has 21 turns that will make the event more exciting for all 11 teams and the audience. It will also be a unique race event that combines sustainability, innovation, and fun. From the finish line, the drivers will have a hard lap because the first sector is tricky and leads to the winding Bobsleigh Run at Turn 6, which has a lot of fast turns in a row. The track is a true test of how well the driver can use his energy and strategy, with a long straightaway at the end of each lap.
Feel the most excitement when the drivers go wheel-to-wheel and sparks fly.
