Yazeed AlRajhi is a Saudi Arabian rally driver. He scored his first World Rally Championship (WRC) points with an eighth place finish on the 2012 Acropolis Rally. Al-Rajhi made his WRC debut on the 2008 Rally Argentina in a Subaru Impreza WRX STI. He retired from that event and the 2008 Jordan Rally – his other WRC appearance of the year.[1] He returned to the top level in 2010, finishing 13th overall on the Jordan Rally in a Peugeot 207 S2000. He also contested that year's Rally d'Italia Sardegna, a round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, but he retired after losing a wheel. In 2011 he contested seven WRC rounds, but retired from six of them. He also competed in the IRC round in Corsica, finishing 14th.

In 2012 he is contesting the Super 2000 World Rally Championship (S-WRC) in a Ford Fiesta RRC run by M-Sport.[2] He finished eighth overall on the Acropolis Rally, which did not count towards S-WRC points.

Now he's recovering from an accident which he had in Ha’il International Rally 2013 (cross-country)
