AMMAN — Jordan will return to the global motorsports’ scene in 2019 after being accepted onto the newly formed FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Baja Rallies, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

Following its hugely successful candidate event in September, the world governing body, the FIA, has rubber stamped Jordan’s application to become a part of the exciting 10-round championship that will get under way on February 14-17 in Russia.

It will then visit rounds in the UAE, Italy, Spain, Hungary and Poland before its Jordan entry from September 19-21, and then finish the eight-round season in Portugal.

The 2019 Jordan Baja will once again be based out of the Red Sea resort city of Aqaba, one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the Middle East.

The stages are run through stunning desert terrain to the north and east of the city.

Jordan has a successful track record in hosting major motor sport events after receiving widespread praise for its three editions of the FIA World Championship hosted in 2008, 2010 and 2011.
