Crown Prince witnesses Opening Round of Formula E Championship, Diriyah

On Friday, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman attended the launching of the opening round of the second session of the FIA ABB Formula E Championship, for electric cars, in Diriyah, organized by the International Automobile Federation (FIA), at the outset of the Diriyah Season activities.

Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince of Bahrain, attended the Formula E race and the accompanying events.

The Formula E race is part of the month-long Diriyah season and features a variety of major sporting events, including the historic Diriyah Battalion, the World Heavyweight Boxing Championship, the Diriyah Tennis Cup for Men, and the Diriyah Equestrian Festival.

The Formula E race are held in Saudi Arabia on November 22 and 23.

During opening Formula E Championship on Friday, MBS appeared in a navy-colored Barbour jacket that immediately went viral on Internet under (#Crown_Prince_Jacket) hashtag, where many social networking sites users praised the Crown Prince look.

Wearing a pair of Tom Ford aviator sunglasses and black Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 trainers, the Crown Prince granted his look an athletic touch.

Interestingly, many Saudis ran on purchasing the same quilted jacket few hours after the Crown Prince wore.

What is most striking is that the outwear item by British heritage brand Barbour was sold out of online stores in few hours.
