AMMAN — Jordan Motorsport the sporting authority for all motorsport events in Jordan, has revealed its calendar of activities for the 2017 season, with a total of 24 events — three more than last year — including speed tests, rallying, karting and drifting.
Jordan Motorsport CEO Othman Naseef told The Jordan Times that this season will witness a new championship.
"The calendar, which was approved by the board of directors headed by HRH Prince Feisal, will include a championship for the 4x4 vehicles for the first time in Jordan due to the importance of such a category in the world of autos," he said.
"In addition, we will have special events where we will have a mixture of [activities] such as speed test, drifting and karting which will appeal to everyone," he added.
According to the calendar, five speed test events, five drifting events, five karting events and four rallies are scheduled, in addition to the Jordan Rally, Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb and three 4x4 events.
Drifting was introduced for the first time as part of the agenda in 2014, gaining popularity in a short time.
The sporting authority is hoping that the 4x4 events will have the same impact, according to Naseef.
"The first Speed Test round will be held on Friday at the Service Park of the Dead Sea area, and we expect this round to be challenging and very popular among fans," he said.
"We hope that this season we will see more participation from women drivers and also from young talents."
