Can anyone stop Shadian’s hill climb dominance?

AMMAN — Many of Jordan’s top speedsters will be looking to end a driver’s grip on one of the Middle East’s most prestigious motor sporting events this Friday, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

Khatsheek Shadian has won the Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb for the past three years, winning last year’s in a rapid time of 1m49.75s to complete his hat-trick.

But, on Friday, he will face a stiff challenge from a host of Jordanian drivers who will be looking to put their name on a trophy which has been one of the most sought-after for the past 50 years.

Looking to capitalise on any slip that Shadian may make will be Husam Salem, an experienced speed test champion who finished third last year.

Wael Mustafa, Ihab Al Shurafa and Salem Tuaima are also capable of upsetting the reigning champion. Past winners of the event include His Majesty King Hussein, while the record stands at 1m48.76s, set by Lebanon’s Roger Feghali in 2007.
