AMMAN — Reigning champion Manaf Hijjawi put on another masterclass as he maintained his winning start to the Jordan Rotax Max Karting Challenge, which is the national championship for the sport in the Kingdom and organised by Jordan Motorsport, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service.

Held at the Jordan Speed Centre, round two was dominated by the defending champion who maintained an average speed of just under 68kph throughout.

After winning Saturday’s first of two races, Hijjawi then went on to take the all-important second race for an overall haul of 94 points, putting him a comfortable 33 points clear of Rakan Qumouq, who finished third and fourth in round two’s races, in the overall standings, followed by Amir Al Najjar (60) and Abdullah Al Dulaimi (44).

Meanwhile, Faisal Al Nashkho won both Mini Max races to open up a lead in the National Championship for the youngsters. In the Junior Max, Hamzeh Qumouq remains on top of following two race wins in that category.
