AMMAN — Mohammed Kukhen on Friday secured the Jordan Drift Championship “Kumho Drift” title as he was crowned champion of the fourth round with the participation of 45 drivers from Jordan and Palestine at the SOFEX Racetrack in Marka.

 Kukhen stayed on top of the overall standings with 75 points, followed Omar Kukhen (66) and Othman Takriti (54).

Munir Hattar came in the fourth with 42 points.

With this win, Kukhen left second place up for grabs between Omar Kukhen and Takriti.

“I’m really satisfied now as the pressure on me eased a bit. The fourth round was crucial and I did accumulate the highest points. 

“The level of competition was excellent and the fans liked the performance,’ he told The Jordan Times.

Kukhen won big in the fourth round after collecting 709 points in his BMW, followed by Mohammed Nofal (661) in his Toyota Corolla and Omar Kukhen (660) in his BMW.

“I had to adopt a good strategy to secure the win and it worked,” Kukhen added.

Qais Tofaha settled for fifth place with 655 points and Othman Takriti came in sixth spot with 639 points.

 

“That was a very exciting round and the competition for the 20 points was high and now the struggle for second place will create more heat and I am sure it will be settled soon,” said Othman Naseef, Jordan Motorsport CEO.
