NEOM McLaren Formula E team gears up for thrilling Diriyah E-Prix

The NEOM McLaren Formula E Team is aiming to continue its strong start to the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship season at the Diriyah E-Prix.

In the season opener in Mexico City two weeks ago, Jake Hughes and René Rast took to the track for their first race for the newly formed NEOM McLaren Formula E Team, clinching 5th and 18th place respectively. This weekend, attention turns to the Diriyah E-Prix which, for the fourth successive year, is being staged as a double-header on January 27 and 28, racing around the historic UNESCO Heritage Site in Diriyah.

NEOM’s collaboration with McLaren Racing brings together two organizations committed to creating a better future and delivering impact on and off the track. The partnership supports NEOM’s commitment to be the world’s most physically active society. The formation of NEOM McLaren Electric Racing, consisting of the NEOM McLaren Formula E Team and the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team, is both an inspiring force and an active facilitator to progress this ambition. The partnership is aligned as well with Saudi Vision 2030.

McLaren’s credentials in technology and innovation creates unique opportunities for both partners. Through the partnership, NEOM is accelerating human progress and its vision to become a global hub for high-performance sport, while developing an environment that attracts the best-performing teams and athletes to collaborate with NEOM.

As part of the partnership, the McLaren Accelerator is a key innovation and technical partner of Oxagon’s advanced and clean industries’ ecosystem and is set to become a founding tenant of its Research and Innovation campus when it opens in 2025.
