Qatar’s Al Attiyah Leads Jordan Rally

Amman, October 15 (QNA) -Qatar’s Nasser Saleh al-Attiyah and French co-driver Matthieu Baumel edged into a slender two-second lead after the opening timed super special of the Jordan Rally, held in close proximity to the residential district of Abdoun in Amman.

Al-Rajhi finished third overall behind al-Attiyah and Vladimir Vasilyev in last week’s Rally of Morocco, but the Saudi missed the last three rounds of the Middle East rally series and has only 15 points earned in Kuwait to show for his regional special stage efforts this season. He and Ulster co-driver Michael Orr finished the opening stage in second place.

Al-Kuwari suffered a major setback in the build up to the rally when his service vehicle was delayed at a border control. The Qatari’s pre-event preparations were badly disrupted as a result, but he posted an opening time of 2min 12.2sec and held third position.
