Saudi Woman Makes Historic Drive as Driving Ban Lifts

Female racing driver Aseel Al Hamad celebrated the end of the ban on women drivers with a lap of honor in a Jaguar F-TYPE. Aseel, the first female board member of the Saudi Arabian Motor Federation, had never driven on a track in her home country before. Aseel joined Jaguar in a call for June 24th to be known as World Driving Day – a day when finally, the whole world can enjoy the thrill of being behind the wheel of a car. On World Driving Day Jaguar invites people to share a memory of their best driving moment (image or anecdote) using the hashtag #worlddrivingday.
