AMMAN — The third round of the Jordan Drift Championship “Kumho Drift” kicks off on Friday with the participation of more than 40 drivers at the SOFEX Racetrack in Marka.

Mohammed Kukhen (539 points), winner of the first and second rounds, will be eyeing his third straight win. His brother Omar Kukhen (531 points) is in second place, followed by Othman Tekriti (525 points).

Drifting consists of three rounds with the last round hosting the best 13 drifters. Drivers have to own a special drift driving licence and will be judged by a committee of experienced drivers.

Drifting is a kind of driving technique that goes back to the 70s in Japan through oversteering and causing a loss of traction whether in the rear wheels or all tyres while controlling a certain entry into an exit of a corner.
