AMMAN — The heavens opened on Friday morning and brought a premature end to the opening round of the Jordan Rally Championship on safety reasons, but it didn’t stop the reigning champion from securing a first win, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

With the event reaching its halfway stage, heavy rains threatened serious problems to the routes being used so the sensible decision was made to stop the race.

Oman’s rising star Abdullah Rawahi was in the box seat at the time and he will collect full championship points in his Subaru Impreza as a result. Countryman Abdullah Al Zubeir picked up second in another Impreza while home driver Yousef Al Asmar completed the podium, making it a 1-2-3 for Subaru in the process.

Jordan’s Ehab Al Shurafa and Shadi Shaban finished fourth and fifth respectively in their Mitsubishi Evo 9s. The second round of the championship will be held on August 7.
