Jordan Motorsport reveals city centre start to rally next month
Amman, Jordan: As the FIA Middle East Rally Championship moves to Cyprus for round five this weekend, Jordan Motorsport has made a big announcement ahead of its round six event next month.
With a mission to take the sport to the people, the Jordan Rally will start with a Thursday night spectacular in Abdoun on October 15.
A large part of Amman’s popular social hub will be closed off to the public for a night to remember, when the region’s top drivers will go against the clock on a specially created track through the area’s streets.
It marks a return to where the 2009 rally was launched, attracting a bumper crowd in excess of 10,000 spectators.
Following the Thursday night launch event, the region’s top drivers will take on 20 timed special stages held over two days (October 16-17) through the Jordan Valley and Dead Sea areas.
Among the big names expected are Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah, from Qatar, and the UAE’s Sheikh Khaled Al-Qassimi, who currently stand first and second respectively in the Middle East Championship ahead of Cyprus this weekend.
Meanwhile, entries for the Jordan Rally close on September 29.
