AMMAN — The Jordan Speed Test Championship is heading towards one of its most thrilling finales following a dramatic pen-ultimate round on Friday, according to the Jordan Olympic Committee News Service. 

Just four points separate the top three drivers with a fourth driver also having an outside chance of taking the title after a day of thrills and spills at the Royal Automobile Club. The round four victory has elevated Ghaith Wreikat to the top of the standings with reigning champion, Mohammed Tayseer, just two points behind and Husam Salem a further two points adrift in third.

On Friday, Wreikat clocked the fastest time when it mattered to take the full 25 points, with Ihab Al Shurafa, who is now fourth on the championship standings, taking second on the day. Salem pipped Tayseer to fourth place with Firas Zoubi completing the top five.

The exciting battle is not just confined to the all-wheel championship, in the Rear Wheel category, just three points separate Mohammed Naqawa at the top and Salim Tuaima in third with Jamal Naqawa sandwiched in between.

In the Front Wheel Championship, Asem Aref holds a two-point advantage from Mohammad Al Azzeh going into the fifth and final round that will be held on October 12.
