AMMAN — Tareq Sukhtian on Friday was crowned champion of the Jordan Karting Championship (Rotax Max Challenge) after winning the fifth and final round at the Jordan Speed Centre.

Sukhtian expressed his happiness after winning the title saying: “It was a great championship and very tough. I managed to secure the title and hopefully I’ve gained more experience.”

The Jordan Karting Championship includes several categories: Micro Max (7-10 years), Mini Max (10-13 years), Junior Max (13-16 years), Senior Max (15 years and older), DD2 (15 years and older) and Masters Max (32 years and older).

Abdullah Dasouqi won the Micro Max category while Ameer Najjar won the MiniMax and junior Max categories.

The DD2 category went to Mohammed Helo.

Oman’s Abdullah Al Rawahi reserved the only spot at the prestigious Rotax MAX Challenge Grand Finals (RMCGF) which will take place at the International Karting Circuit of Portimão in Algarve, Portugal, November 8 to 14, 2015 after winning the Senior Max category of the championship.

 “The level of competition and the organisation in addition to the huge fan base made it an almost perfect championship. We are happy that Oman’s Al Rawahi will be competing in Portugal as he did compete well here and in Europe, so he deserves to be there,” said Othman Nassef, CEO of Jordan Motorsport.

“We are getting a lot of positive vibes regarding karting competitions and we are happy for that as many regard it as the mother of all auto sports,” he added.


The RMCGF hosts more than 300 drivers from more than 50 countries and it follows strict regulations starting with the technical specifications of the engines in which only Rotax Max kart engines are allowed. The track is 1,532m in length and 8m wide and karts average speeds of 94 km/h at the event.
