World’s Largest LEGO Brick Build of a Formula 1 Car Unveiled
The Saudi Automobile & Motorcycle Federation (SAMF) – 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.
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.
