AMMAN — The experienced Khalid Juma has been crowned the 2018 Jordan National Rally Champion after taking the third round of the Jordan Motorsport-organised series on Friday, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

Juma cruised to victory by a winning margin of three minutes and 50 seconds, taking the maximum 25 points in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10 and securing the drivers’ crown with a round to go.

Salameh Al Gammaz, in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 5, moved into second on the championship standings after finishing second, with Ihab Shurafa continuing his consistent season in third place, driving a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9, while Sami Fleifel and Tareq Al Taher completed the top five.

With the drivers title already sorted, there is a dramatic chase for the co-drivers’ crown with Shadi Shaban, who was reading the notes for Fleifel, leading the way by just 1.5 points from Emad Juma, who has been alongside Khalid Juma for his past two victories. The final round of the Jordan National Rally Championship will be held on November 16.
