One of Jordan’s longest standing sporting events will take place on Friday.
Under the patronage of HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the Chairman of Jordan Motorsport, the Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb will get underway from 10am.
Some of the best drivers in the country will tackle the famous uphill route twice before the fastest 10 compete in the final.
The list includes Khadshik Shadian who seeks to win this third title in a row, while Hussam Salem will no doubt announce his return to the historical race with a challenge for the fastest time.
Speed test champions Ayman Al Najjar and Mohammad Tayseer, who finished second last year, are also confirmed to make this one of the strongest line-ups for many years.
Lebanon’s Roger Feghali’s 2007 time of 1 minute 48.76 seconds is still the track record for the 3km course which has 27 bends.
The Hill Climb was first held in 1953, and carries the name of His Late Majesty King Hussein Bin Talal who participated in the race right up until 1996.
