More telling in the article is the analysis of Saudi Arabia's ambitious $100 Billion tourism goal for 2030
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

Hi Everybody,
It looks promising;) is already talking about production. So we all hope this will become a reality. We think it is possible, it just wants someone to pay for it, and only gentlemens from Saudi Arabia are capable of this.
Dream becomes reality
We do the best for you.

I had no plans to ever visit Saudi Arabia but if this gets built and opens that will change. The renderings look amazing and even if only ¼ of what's in it gets built it will be amazing. I love the setting with the cliffs around it - I hope that's the location they end up using. I also noticed a race track in one of the renderings that a pedestrian bridge crosses over and the Falcon's Fury coaster goes by. Is that going to be an actual race track like Formula 1, or is it a go cart or Autopia or racing type of ride? If they got an actual Formula 1 race track there with races that would really add to the entertainment city.

It technically could be both. The cars on track are Formula One cars from all ages. I definitely saw cars from Senna, Vettel, Mansell and Hamilton. With Liberty Media expading to so many new places, I wouldn't wonder if there are plans to go to Saudi Arabia.
On the other hand, it's only a rendering. So it may be only a tracked ride themed to formula one with the tracks being left out of the rendering.

The developer's site mentions motorsports. So I'd assume the track/cars seen are part of that, not the SF park.
