AMMAN — The 2022 Jordan Rally was officially flagged away from the Royal Automobile Museum in Amman on Thursday evening by HRH Princess Ayah Al Feisal.

Twenty-two cars passed technical checks, with 15 teams eligible for the fourth round of the 2022 FIA Middle East Rally Championship (MERC) and a further six taking part in a Jordan national status event running behind the main rally, according to the Jordan Rally Media Service.

Several team members attended the official FIA pre-event press conference on the start podium shortly before the ceremonial start formalities.

On Friday competitors tackle two loops of three gravel special stages, starting with the 9.71km Yakrut test from 8:27am.

Drivers then face the rigours of the demanding WRC-style Jordan River stage of 40.79km (9:49am) and a run through the 11.34km Baptism Site special (10:43am). The three specials are repeated from 12:47pm, 14:05pm and 15:17pm, respectively
