AMMAN — Jordan’s stand-out top two drift drivers this season are set for an epic duel when they head a field of 39 entries at Friday’s Round Three of the National Drift Championships, according to the Jordan Motorsport Media Service.

Taking place on the challenging Sofex track, in Marka, Raafat Haroun and Mohammed Al Foqahaa are expected to be the men to beat after dominating the five-round series so far.

Haroun goes into the midway stage with the edge, having won the first two rounds with terrific drives in his Toyota GT 86. However, reigning 2018 champion Al Foqahaa knows that finishing ahead of his rival is a must if he is to reclaim his crown in his BMW E30s of Al Foqahaa after two second-placed finishes.

Other big names to look for include Jibreel Tahseen, who finished third last time out, and the likes of Mohammed Noufal, Abdullah Abu Hussein and Omar Khukhun, who are all capable of taking the top spot. Four Palestinian and two Egyptian drivers are also entered to bring a regional feel to the entry field.
