Reema Juffali becomes the first Saudi woman driver to race car in kingdom

Hailing from the kingdom of Saudi Arabia, professional car racer Reema Juffali is all set to make her debut in her home country at the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy event in Diriyah which is to be held from Friday-Saturday. The 27-year-old will be the 1st female to take part in a sport that has been dominated by men for decades.

 Coming from Jeddah, Juffali thought she would never see the day when she would get the chance to sit behind the wheel and compete on a national level. She commented, “The fact that I am doing it….is amazing”. It might have never been possible if it were not for the revolutionary and liberal policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, lifting the ban on female drivers in a nation that is believed to very conservative and deeply religious.

The young racer is not very experienced but has always been mesmerized by speedy cars since her teenage days and used to watch Formula One on Tv with passion and enthusiasm. Growing up the thrill and the rush used to bring unimaginable joy to her.

She believes that women in Saudi Arabia see racing as something that is still out of reach but hopes that with the passage of time more doors will open and more opportunities for young girls will arise.

Juffali dreams to one day compete on the race tracks of France at the Le Mans and hopefully win the title.
