Ed Racing’s Al Dossari enters Jordan Baja and sets sights on victory

AMMAN — Saudi Arabian driver Essa Al Dossari is one of the first international drivers to enter the exciting new Jordan Baja, an FIA candidate event for the forthcoming FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

The three-day off-road event for cars, motorcycles and quads will take place in the stunning Wadi Rum area on September 27-29.

Dossari has been out of international rallying action since crashing his ED Racing Nissan Navara on the second stage of April’s Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge. But the Saudi is relishing a return to the hot seat in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan after the car’s return was put on hold in June by the cancellation of the Aseer Rally in Saudi Arabia.

He will be partnered by the UAE navigator Ali Hassan Obaid. Organised by Jordan Motorsport, the event is the first of its kind to be based out of the Red Sea city of Aqaba.

It will run 383.80 competitive kilometres in Wadi Rum — a UNESCO World Heritage site that featured in a number of Oscar-winning films. Entries for the new Jordan Baja close at reduced rates on August 30. The final cut-off for entries will be September 11.
