German firm Losberger De Boer has been awarded a contract to supply temporary structure builds for the upcoming Formula E Grand Prix in Riyadh.

The sporting events specialists, which has offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, will build the 190 metre-long pit lane building together with second floor hospitality and viewing facilities for the event, which takes from December 12 - 15

Losberger De Boer will be responsible for project managing turnkey delivery of the entire pit lane structure to support this event within a tight 40-day build timeframe together with rapid dismantling immediately following race day.

The ABB FIA Formula E Championship season opener takes place in the ancient surroundings of Ad Diriyah on a 2.495km track that has 21 twists and turns that will see drivers skirt the historic town walls before heading back towards the start/finish line in the heart of the district.

The event also features six artists playing at after-race concerts on the three nights of the event - Enrique Iglesias and Jason Derulo on December 13; The Black Eyed Peas and Amr Diab on December 14 and OneRepublic and David Guetta on December 15.

Access to the complimentary concerts is exclusive to Formula E ticket holders with December 13 and 14 starting from SAR295 for single day tickets, and December 15 starting from SAR395 for race day and concert access. Combined three-day tickets start from SAR950.

Tickets are available from Riyadh Park mall, Oud Square at the Diplomatic Quarter, Seven Car Lounge and Doos Carting, and online from the E-prix website.
