JEDDAH: Continuing to grow its portfolio of unique experiences in Saudi Arabia, Extreme Events has announced the opening of a supercar members’ club, DRB 1921.
The club creates bespoke events and tours at some of the most iconic destinations around the globe, including internationally recognized race circuits such as Silverstone International Circuit in the UK.
“Combining thrilling driving events with luxurious hospitality, world-class curation, attention to detail and customer care will bring members back time and time again,” a statement said.
To celebrate Saudi Arabia’s passion for high performance cars, DRB 1921’s name is inspired by an Arabic meaning of route (DRB) and a celebratory date when historians noted the first motor vehicles arrived in the Kingdom, spawning the nation’s love for cars.
Moreover, this year marks 100 years of motor cars in the Kingdom. With such richness and passion for motoring, DRB 1921 is set to offer outstanding experiences that are tailored to accommodate those who appreciate state-of-the-art technology and a thrilling ride.
Each event is carefully tailored to ensure it meets every member’s expectation and creates the most memorable moments.
With every supercar having its own unique nuances and the average top speed of over 420 km an hour, DRB 1921 provides remarkable experiences in a controlled environment with expert supervision, letting everyone test their driving limits and truly tapping each car’s potential.
Whether it is a scenic drive in the most beautiful and uncharted locations in Saudi Arabia or an exciting speed challenge at an internationally recognized race circuit, DRB 1921 guarantees car owners the driving experience of a lifetime.

Each journey is complemented by the pinnacle of luxury hospitality and exquisite gastronomy, where a like-minded community of supercar owners come together.
DRB 1921 partners with a selection of the world’s top suppliers such as CARS Middle East (Classic Automotive Relocation Services) to ensure the very best assistance and concierge to look after members’ luxury cars, as well as a personal brokerage service that is exceptionally discreet, affording each client complete anonymity.
For those who are ready to master the maximum top speed in these high velocity road vehicles, DRB 1921 is organizing its inaugural event “320km Speed Challenge” on Sept. 30.
The event exclusively takes place on a private non-commercial runway owned by the Saudi Aviation Club, located in Al-Thumama, in the north of Riyadh.
Measuring 4.5 km in length, this vast runway has previously been identified by NASA as one of the few landing destinations across the globe for aborted space shuttle missions.
On this day, supercar owners have an opportunity to join a passionate community for an exhilarating driving experience and an incredible day out.
“Extreme Events is very proud to launch DRB 1921 in Saudi Arabia because it opens the opportunity for supercar owners to test their skills and unlock real potential of their cars in a safe environment,” said James Cooke-Priest, managing director at Extreme Events.
He added: “The concept also encourages a niche community to come together and share different experiences of driving exceptionally advanced supercars. I see DRB 1921 beyond just a private club, I see it becoming a community hub for like-minded car enthusiasts in the Kingdom.”
