Omar Al Kukhun keeps Jordan Drift Championship title chase alive

AMMAN — Omar Al Kukhun delivered a timely reminder as to why he is regarded as one of the best drift drivers in the Middle East with a stunning victory at round four of the Jordan Drift Championship, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.   

Kukhun blazed back to form with a swashbuckling performance to thrill the judges and the bumper crowd at the old track in Madaba.  

All eyes were on the top two of Raafat Haroun and Mohammed Al Foqahaa, but it was the BMW E30 of Kukhun that stole the show. Second went to Issam Al Jamal and third was picked up by Ahmed Al Jabali to give them both vital championship points with one round remaining.

Haroun’s fourth place means he still leads the series, and he has extended his lead at the top after closest rival Foqahaa came in ninth. The title will now be decided at the fifth and final round to be held on November 22.
