Jeddah — SAMF, the Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation, Friday announced its plan to build the world’s largest LEGO brick Formula1 car in aid of Ehsan, Saudi Arabia’s national organization for charity.
The officials of Guinness World Records will certify the SAMF attempt as a world record.
The LEGO build of the race car will begin on Sept. 15 by Prince Saud Bin Abdullah Bin Jalawi, acting Governor of Jeddah and advisor to the governor of Makkah Region, and the chairman of the Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation Prince Khalid Bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal, by placing the first brick. The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will allow the people of Saudi Arabia to participate in the record-breaking attempt.
The project will be completed on Sept. 23, Saudi Arabia’s National Day, with Guinness World Records Representatives on hand via live stream to certify the Lego-built Formula1 car as the world’s largest.
F1 fans in the Kingdom can participate in this record-breaking attempt by registering themselves at saudiarabiangp.com/en/lego to ‘purchase’ a Lego brick, with each purchase going directly to Ehsan as a donation.
As the 2021 Formula1 Grand Prix arrives in Saudi Arabia, the newest circuit in the sport expects to see drivers achieve average speeds of 250km/h. Thus making the Sudi circuit the fastest street circuit in the world.
