AMMAN (JORDAN): Fahad Al-Abdullatif has entered the Jordan Baja, the Hashemite Kingdom’s first cross-country rally to run since 1990. The event takes place in the Wadi Rum region of southern Jordan on September 27-29.

Running under the banner of the Deaf Rally Team Saudi Arabia to highlight his handicap to the motor sporting world, the Saudi Arabian driver has entered the three-day event in a T2 Nissan Patrol.

His friend Ziad Al-Harbi will co-drive and the pair will use special instructions and hand signs to overcome the disadvantage of the driver’s lack of hearing.

Previous successes for the Saudi include a T2 victory at the Umm Al-Quwain Rally in the UAE in 2016, seventh overall in the category for series production cross-country vehicles at the Ha’il Rally the same year and sixth in 2017.
