The circuit is laid out along the coast of the Red Sea, in an area known as the Jeddah Corniche (Corniche is originally from the Italian word for ledge, cornice). Designed by Hermann Tilke, it runs alongs the waterfront about 10km north of the center of Jeddah.
The track is planned to be 6.175 km long, the second longest circuit in F1. Only Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps is longer, at 7.004 km. It will be roughly in the shape of an out-and-back trip on the main coastal road, running almost due north-south, but will actually have 27 corners. Computers simulations have forecast lap speeds close to 250 km/h, easily the fastest street circuit ever.
The start/finish straight and pit road will be on a road named Al Kurnaysh, the Arabic transliteration of Corniche. The track starts heading north past the Bellajio Resort, and the Farsi Plaza. Traveling largely through vacant land along the Al Kurnaysh and Corniche roads, there will be a sharp left-right chicane at the end of the main straight near the Golden Tower hotel,
The circuit reverses course with a sweeping 200 left near the Al Rahma Mosque. It follows that with a sweeping right and left before making a right-left at a roundabout across from the Beach Tower resort.
