AMMAN — It promises to be a bumper year for motor sport fans after Jordan Motorsport unveiled its most extensive and diverse calendar of events for 2019, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service. 

An incredible 28 local, regional and world events will be hosted by Jordan Motorsport with no less than five National Championships being held throughout the Kingdom in 2019. 

The highlight of the year will be Jordan’s return to the global motor sporting scene when it hosts a round of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas in Wadi Rum from September 19-21, a thrilling event that will see the Kingdom return to the motorsport world stage for the first time since it hosted rounds of the FIA World Rally Championship in 2008, 2010 and 2011.

The FIA Middle East Rally Championship will return to the Dead Sea from April 25-27 for what is widely regarded as the regional series’ leading round. The National Rally Championship will also consist of five rounds. 

The popular Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb, one of the oldest sporting events in the region, will be held on July 26, with the aim of attracting drivers this year from a number of countries. 

With a strong focus on developing grass roots motorsport, the National Karting Championship has been expanded to eight rounds, and the 4x4 Championship will include three events this year. 

The season is set for a high-profile launch on March 1-2 when the Jordan Motorsport Festival will include opening rounds of both the National Drift and the National Speed Test Championships. Both of those series will consist of five rounds again this year.
