AMMAN — Husam Salem has stormed to the top of the Jordan Speed Test Championship following a sensational third round at the Royal Automobile Club, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

The 2018 champion won Friday’s event by just 0.13 of a second from Ghaith Wreikat who moves into second in the championship standings, with Khatshick Shadian completing the podium places.

Salem showed his class by saving his best until last, storming around the track in a blistering time of 1 minute 19.9 seconds, edging out Wreikat who is now Salem’s closest challenger following former leader Mohammed Tayseer’s failure to pick up a point.

It was a bumper entry with 64 cars listed, and the results set up the fourth round nicely on August 30.
