Jordan International Rally - HRH PRINCE FEISAL PAYS TRIBUTE TO 'LIFEBLOOD OF THE RALLY'

28.04.2005: Jordan International Rally - HRH PRINCE FEISAL PAYS TRIBUTE TO 'LIFEBLOOD OF THE RALLY'

FIA Middle East Rally Championship, round 5 of 9

Amman, Jordan: With the Jordan Rally set to come under the global spotlight like never before, HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, Chairman of Jordan Motorsport, has praised the support from the hundreds of volunteers gearing up to welcome the world to the Hashemite Kingdom from May 5-7.

Dozens of international press and VIPs from the FIA World Rally Championship are expected to visit Jordan next week to see whether the Kingdom has got what it takes to become a future part of the FIA WRC, an initiative that was announced by HRH Prince Feisal back in January.

But while all eyes will be on the record international field of 41 teams, behind the scenes are hundreds of people who have given up their time to become a part of a national initiative that will help to put Jordan on the map like never before.

"Quite simply put, without the support of the volunteers we would not even have a rally," said HRH Prince Feisal. "We are indebted to the support of each and every person who has come forward to work on this event and to ensure that the Jordan Rally achieves the high standards that the FIA expects.

"I offer my sincere thanks to everyone and hope that they take great pride out of being involved with such a prestigious event. It is going to be a rally to remember and the professionalism and hard work from the volunteers will play a big role in its success. They are the lifeblood of the rally."

An army of over 350 volunteers have signed up for the 2005 Jordan Rally. They will be working as marshals and in the areas of timing, service park, rally headquarters, media centres, stages, information and results. Each volunteer has been put through an intensive two-month training course and they are now ready to host the leading round of the FIA Middle East Rally Championship.

"They do a wonderful job," said Chairman of the Organising Committee, Tarek Tabba'a. "They are an integral part of the rally and I believe we have some of the best trained volunteers in the championship. They are a real credit to Jordan and will do us all proud."

The 2005 Jordan Rally will be launched with a spectacular ceremonial start in Abdoun from 4pm on May 5. Nineteen special stages will then be held over two days before reaching a colourful climax in Hussein Gardens on May 7.

The event has also received a boost with support from the Ministry of Housing and Public Works, Greater Amman Municipality, Higher Council for Youth, Royal Jordanian and Jordan Tourism Board, while Power Horse (Official Energy Drink), Chery International (Official Car), Marriott (Official Hotel), Fast Link (Official Network Provider) are confirmed as sponsors.
