AMMAN — Jordan’s top all terrain drivers face tough competition from across the border once again this weekend when the second round of the Jordan 4x4 Championship is held at Ghamadan Park on Airport Road on Friday, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

Khaled Quraan held off a strong Palestinian threat to take the opening round back in March, but he will be up against the likes of Emad Abu Dabbour, who finished second last time out and heads an impressive Palestinian entry of five quality drivers.

Jordan’s Ghaith Kopti, Ahmad Shaker and Waseem Abu Jaber, who completed the top five in round one, are all entered and will be looking to secure points with one round remaining after Friday.

A big field of 42 vehicles are entered, providing an action packed day which will get under way at the specially-created track on Friday morning from 8:30am for a full day of action. All of the competitors will have two goes on the track, with the best 15 going through to the final round.
