Geobrugg Motorsport worked in a close relationship with Tilke GmbH & Co. KG, the circuit designer of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, to ensure the FIA Standard 3502-2018 debris fence. We also had close communications and several meetings with the Saudi Arabian Motor Federation to keep the client informed and meet his expectations.

Additionally, we supported the event organizer with installing the digi flag fixations. We also installed our flexible openings, which are used for TV camera operators and photographers. Furthermore, during the circuit installation, Geobrugg was permanently on-site to supervise the installation and execute the final inspection, including the FIA labeling.
