Jordan Rally given a clean bill of health following a wet week


The Jordan Rally stages have been given a clean bill of health following heavy rains, which hit the Kingdom this week.


Preparations have been bang on track for the leading round on the FIA Middle East Rally Championship, which gets underway from Abdoun next Thursday afternoon, but a wet week left organizers facing some unplanned challenges.


But, with a fine week of weather forecasted, organizers have run the rule over every one of the 260kms that will test the region’s best drivers next weekend.


“We have had a lot of rain but we are in good shape with all of the stages coming through unscathed,” said Othman Nassif, CEO of Jordan Motorsport and Chairman of the Organising Committee. “We have received excellent support from the army, Ministry of Public Works and Municipalities to ensure the stages are up to world class standards and we are ready.”


The event starts in Abdoun Circle next Thursday from 2.30pm with a drivers Q&A session followed by a ceremonial start. Following this is a super special stage close by with drivers taking on a specially created 2.2km route, also in Abdoun.


Day One on Friday will then consist of 10 timed stages over 137km located within a stone’s throw of the Dead Sea Service Park. On Saturday, the region’s top drivers will tackle another 10 timed stages of 125km, which are also easily accessible. Full maps are available on www.jordanrally.com.


The event will finish at the Dead Sea Service Park on Saturday evening.
