Omani driver clinches Jordan National Rally Championship

AMMAN — Following an absorbing five-round series, the Jordan Rally Championship drivers’ title has been clinched by Oman’s rising star, Abdullah Rawahi, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

The youngster clinched Friday’s final round at the Dead Sea after championship favourite Khalid Juma was disqualified through a timing infringement at the final service, meaning the 37.5 points won were enough to take the honours.

Veteran campaigner, Salameh Gammaz, came in second on the day, and the points gained were enough to take runners-up spot overall for the season.

He will settle for the Group S title as consolation to round off an excellent season. Ziad Miqdad ends the year in third with Juma in fourth and previous champion Maruf Abu Samra, who didn’t compete in the final three events, in fifth.

Rawahi’s navigator, Ata Al Hmoud, of Jordan, claimed the co-drivers’ title with Feisal Al Gammaz coming in second.
