Aug 20, 2015
Under the patronage of HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the chairman of Jordan Motorsport, the Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb will take place Friday from 10am.
Thirty Four drivers are entered with each tackling the famous uphill route twice before the fastest 10 compete in the final.
Lebanon’s Roger Feghali won the 2014 title and his 2007 time of 1 minute 48.76 seconds is still the track record for the 3km course which has 27 curves.
The width of the track is just 4m and the longest straight reaches 150m.
The race is named in memory of King Hussein Bin Talal who launched the first edition in 1953. His Late Majesty competed in the event until 1996 when he set a record of 1.57:28 that stood for a number of years.
