Racing with the Jeddah Boyz

Despite the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's strict religious culture, Simon Reeve finds a more surprising side of Saudi life, as he meets young men from the Jeddah Boyz car gang who love to pimp their rides, modifying and personalising their expensive cars.

At the Jeddah Raceway Simon tries a few tricks in a borrowed Porsche 911, and learns that the authorities are keen for disaffected young Saudi men to let off steam by playing with cars rather than joining militant groups.
