Al-Rajhi began his driving career in 2007 on stage and cross-country rallies in the Middle East.
He learned his craft in this tough environment (plus a short-lived attempt at the 2008 Rally Argentina) over the next two seasons.
In 2009 he won two rounds of the Middle East Rally Championship in a Peugeot 207 S2000 accompanied by French co-driver Matthieu Baumel.
He did the same in 2010, but also added a handful of European rallies to his programme.
The focus shifted to the WRC in 2011, but results were disappointing and he only finished one of the seven rounds he started.
A nine-round SWRC programme followed in 2012, and a switch to the new Fiesta RRC and a new co-driving partnership with Michael Orr turned his fortunes around and took him to third in the title race.
His 2013 season got off to a great start with a class win in Sweden, but he was then forced to take three months off after breaking two vertebrae in a cross country rally crash in Saudia Arabia.
He returned in Finland and performed strongly for the rest of the season, taking second in Spain and ending the year fifth in the standings.
