AMMAN — Jordan’s top two speed test drivers for 2014 are promising a showdown to remember at Friday’s sixth and final round of the Kumho National Speed Test Championship in Aqaba, according to a statement from Jordan Motorsport.

Rami Kaghado and Mohammad Tayseer are first and second in the championship standings after a thrilling head-to-head battle throughout the year.

But championship victory is in Kaghado’s hands should he finish anywhere in the top three. However, any slip up Tayseer, who won last time out in Madaba, said he is ready to pounce.

“Mohammad is an excellent driver and has been putting the pressure on me all season, as have a number of other very strong drivers,” Kaghado, who is suffering from flu this week, was quoted as saying in the statement.

“I feel relaxed though. I’m leading the championship and will try to finish the season with a win on Friday
in Aqaba.”

Meanwhile, Tayseer said that he will go “all out” to win the event and hope that other drivers will beat his main rival to the podium places.

“I want the 2014 title so will do my best and go all out for the win,” he said. I have prepared very well. The event is very exciting and I am looking forward to putting on a show in front of a big crowd,” Tayseer said in the statement.

Action on Friday morning gets under way at 8:30am in the middle of the Red Sea resort which has closed its roads especially for the event.

The 6th round of the Kumho National Speed Test Championship will provide an exciting finale to what has been a thrilling season of motor sport featuring national championships in karting, drifting, rallying and speed tests.

Jordan Motorsport’s traditional season ending Aqaba showdown has attracted 65 cars for what promises to be an event to remember.
