AMMAN — Motorsport met music as thousands of fans enjoyed an action packed two-day Festival organised by Jordan Motorsport at the Exhibition Grounds on Airport Road,  according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

The weekend incorporated two rounds of separate national championships, and came to a close with a stunning concert featuring some of Jordan’s finest acts. The action got under way on Thursday when the fourth round of the Jordan Drifting Championship welcomed 40 of the Kingdom’s best.

Following three sensational rounds, Abdullah Abu Hussein took the top prize by just two points from Mohammed Al Foqahaa with Raafat Haroun in third. Ahmad Al Jabali finished fourth with Jibreel Tahseen completing the top five.

Foqahaa leads the championship by nine points from Jabali with just one round to go. Haroun lies in third. On Friday the Jordan Speed Test Championship threw the title chase wide open with Rami Khagado, in a Subara, beating a host of Mitsubishis to the top spot in a time of 1:17.80, almost a second clear of Mustafa Attari in second.

Ghaith Wreikat was a fraction of a second further back in third with Ihab Al Shurafa in fourth and the consistent Husam Salem finishing fifth. The event was organised to promote motorsport to a wider audience and has been hailed a success by organisers.
