AMMAN — Round 3 of the Jordan Drift Championship kicks off on Friday with the participation of 56 drivers at the Service Park of the Dead Sea area, with drivers from Palestine, Egypt, Iraq and Jordan taking part.

The event will see Othman Takriti, winner of the second round battling it out with winner of the first round Mohammed Kukhen.

Takriti is currently leading the standings with 47 points while Kukhen is trailing with 45 points and Ra’fat Haroun is in the third spot with 30 points. 

Jordan Motorsport CEO Othman Naseef told The Jordan Times that the third round will carry lots of challenges to drivers.

“Due to its criticality and closeness to the final round, drivers will have to take extra measures to gain points. We have witnessed many drivers with improved skills and this is reassuring as they know what they have to do,” he said.

“The event will consist of three rounds with the third dedicated for the best 13 results of drivers,” he added.

 

Drifting is a kind of driving technique used by drivers through oversteering and causing a loss of traction whether in the rear wheels or all tyres while controlling a certain entry to exit of a corner; drivers will be judged according to speed, angle and perfect track line (90 points), showmanship (5 points) and smoking tyres (5 points).
