AMMAN — Jordan Motorsport  announces that the Jordan Baja, round three of the 2020 FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas, has been postponed because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The event had been scheduled to run through Jordan’s stunning Wadi Rum on April 16-18, according to the Jordan Baja Media Service.

Jordan Motorsport CEO Zaid Balqez said: “Unfortunately, this decision has been forced upon us given the global magnitude of the pandemic.

As part of the measures that have been taken internationally, and since the announcement by the World Health Organisation that Covid-19 is a pandemic, the Jordanian government has taken several preventative measures on entry restrictions for certain nationals into the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.” Jordan Motorsport is hopeful that a date can be agreed with the FIA to run the event at a later date this year.
