Salem steps closer to Jordan Speed Test title

AMMAN — Reigning champion Husam Salem has taken a huge step towards being crowned 2019 Jordan Speed Test Champion after picking up another win on Friday at the Royal Automobile Club, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

The experienced driver won round four and, added to two victories from the previous three rounds, he is now 28 points clear at the top of the table with just one round to go.

Salem blitzed the opposition with some scintillating driving in his Mitsubishi Evo to clock a winning time that was 1.08 seconds faster than his closest rival, Ghaith Wreikat, in second. With 50 per cent more points available in the final round on November 8, Wreikat is now the only driver who can catch Salem, but he would need to win the event if Salem picks up less than 10 points.

Third place went to Mustafa Attari, who moves up to third overall on the standings, while Shaker Jweihan and Amjad Al Ansaweh finished fourth and fifth respectively.
