In a historic move for Saudi Arabia’s motorsport scene, Reema Juffali, the kingdom’s trailblazing racing driver, has been confirmed as the Wild Card entry for the first round of the 2024 F1 ACADEMY Racing Series in Jeddah.

Juffali’s passion for racing ignited in 2018 when she made her debut in the TRD 86 Cup and MRF Challenge, laying the foundation for a career defined by perseverance and excellence.

Despite facing numerous challenges in a male-dominated sport, she refused to be deterred, showcasing her talent and determination with frequent points-scoring finishes in the F4 British Championship the following year.

The Jeddah-born racer made history once again by becoming the first Saudi Arabian woman to compete in an international race on home soil, driving in the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY.

Her achievements continued to flourish as she transitioned to endurance racing, delivering a stellar performance with a second-place finish in her class at the 2022 Dubai 24 Hours.

Not content with merely breaking records on the track, Juffali established her own team, Theeba Motorsport, with a mission to enhance access and participation in motorsport in Saudi Arabia through educational and internship programs.

Her vision and leadership propelled Theeba Motorsport to victory in the 2022 International GT Open, making her the first Saudi Arabian woman to win an international motor race while also securing the Vice Championship title in the series’ Pro-Am class.

In a sport where speed and skill reign supreme, Juffali’s achievements transcend mere podium finishes. She has become a symbol of empowerment and possibility, challenging stereotypes and inspiring individuals worldwide to pursue their dreams relentlessly.

Her groundbreaking journey reached new heights last year in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup, where she made history once again by claiming pole position, becoming the first female and first Saudi Arabian driver to achieve this feat.

Each triumph serves as a testament to her unwavering dedication and resilience in the face of adversity.

Upon being confirmed as the Wild Card entry for the 2024 F1 ACADEMY Racing Series in her hometown of Jeddah, Juffali expressed her gratitude and excitement for the opportunity to represent her country on such a prestigious stage.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be representing my country, especially in my hometown,” she remarked. “This is just the beginning!”

As Juffali prepares to make history once again, her journey serves as a reminder that barriers are meant to be broken and dreams are meant to be pursued with unwavering determination.

Through her courage and tenacity, she continues to pave the way for future generations of aspiring racers, proving that with passion, perseverance, and belief in oneself, anything is possible.
