In the season opener in Mexico City two weeks ago, Jack Hughes and René Rast competed in their first races for the newly formed NEOM McLaren Formula E team, finishing 5th and 18th respectively. This weekend, attention turns to the Darya E-Prix which, for the fourth consecutive year, is being celebrated as a double-header running around the historic UNESCO heritage site on the Darya on January 27 and 28.
NEOM’s partnership 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 becoming the world’s most physically active society. The NEOM McLaren Electric Racing formation, consisting of the NEOM McLaren Formula E Team and the NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team, is both an inspiring force and an active facilitator in driving this ambition forward. The partnership is also aligned with Saudi Vision 2030.
McLaren’s credentials in technology and innovation create unique opportunities for both partners. Through the partnership, NEOM is accelerating human development and accelerating its vision to become a global hub for high-performance sport, while creating an environment that fosters the best performing teams and athletes. Encourage cooperation with NEOM.
As part of the partnership, the McLaren Accelerator is a key innovation and technology partner in Oxagon’s innovative and clean industries ecosystem and is set to become a founding tenant of its Research and Innovation Campus when it opens in 2025.
