Promoter Unveils the World’s Largest LEGO® Brick Build of a Formula 1® Car



Guinness World Records ™️ certifies LEGO® brick build of Formula 1® car built in Jeddah as the world’s largest!

 

 Promoter of the FORMULA 1 SAUDI ARABIAN GRAND PRIX 2021 – has today become an Official World Record Holder as the final brick was placed by the Chairman of SAMF, HRH Prince Khalid bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal, to complete the world’s largest LEGO brick build of a Formula 1® car in aid of Ehsan - Saudi Arabia’s National Platform for Charitable Work.
 


The record was certified by Guinness World Records ™️, whose representatives observed the successful completion of the LEGO brick build of a Formula 1® car before officially verifying the achievement.
 


In conceiving this charitable enterprise, SAMF ensured that the people of Saudi Arabia were able to directly participate in the build-up to the inaugural Saudi Arabian Grand Prix™ on the weekend of December 3rd - 5th, whilst also contributing towards a vital cause – in keeping with the country’s commitment to Vision 2030 – with the goal of delivering a brighter future for all Saudi citizens.
 


By registering at saudiarabiangp.com/en/lego, Saudi residents were able ‘purchase’ a brick used in the car’s construction, the proceeds of which went directly and in full to Ehsan.
 


All donations will go towards helping to provide relief and support across Saudi Arabia’s social, educational, healthcare, relief, environmental, economic, and technical sectors.
 
 


Located at the Red Sea Mall in Jeddah, the assembly of the world’s largest LEGO brick build of a Formula 1® car used over 500,000 bricks and was carried out by LEGO certified professionals. As such, this provided hundreds of thousands of Saudi Arabians with the opportunity to participate and donate to this record-breaking endeavour.
 


To ensure their contributions are not forgotten, all contributor's names are clearly displayed on a digital screen next to the record-breaking construction, guaranteeing their historic achievement has been marked forever.
 


The final LEGO brick was laid this morning by HRH Prince Khalid bin Sultan Al-Abdullah Al-Faisal on what is Saudi Arabia’s 91st National Day, making this incredible accomplishment even more significant for the Kingdom’s residents.
 


Speaking afterwards, HRH shared his elation at today’s record-breaking achievement “I am ecstatic to announce the completion of the world’s largest ever LEGO brick build of a Formula 1 car – fully approved and certified by Guinness World Records!
 


It is an indescribable feeling to be a part of not one but two world record breaking moments in the same year, with the Jeddah Corniche Circuit also set to become the longest & fastest street circuit on the planet when it makes its debut at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in December.
 


This exciting project was all about giving back to our community and reflecting the true meaning & values of progress, innovation & social responsibility that symbolise modern Saudi Arabia. Today I feel confident in declaring that it has done so and much, much more. This incredible accomplishment has been a feat of collaboration and ingenuity bound by a collective passion to use the power of F1 to provide Saudi Arabia with a brighter future.
 


To be able to showcase this to the world on the weekend of the first ever Saudi Arabian Grand Prix is an amazing achievement and I cannot wait to see what more is in store for us.”
