The rally tour will take place from the 24th-26th May 2012, coinciding with Jordan’s Independence Day and the 200th anniversary of the re-discovery of Petra.
The Discover Jordan Rally Tour is a three day event that is sponsored by Evason Six Senses, Luminox and M.S Ja’far & Sons since 1909 – Amman, Go magazine, Torque Magazine, Play FM and Sunny FM. As the biggest event of its kind in the Kingdom this year, the rally tour will gather car enthusiasts, families and tourists to discover the most significant historical, religious and touristic sites Jordan has to offer.
Othman Nassif, Managing Director of iSports, stated, “At iSports we aim to find innovative and engaging ways to support the tourism sector in Jordan, while actively serving the sports environment and helping it flourish. The Discover Jordan Rally Tour is not an event that involves high-speed. It is a fun activity for everyone to participate in. iSports prioritizes the adherence and respect for general driving and safety rules, speed limits and the rules of the road, in line with the United Nations action plan to reduce road accidents.”
He added, “The Discover Jordan route has been extensively planned and outlined so as to give participants the chance to explore as much of our country as possible. The various activities that will take place are inspired by the sites that participants will discover from Roman cities and Crusader castles, to desert citadels and biblical sites.”
A group of no less than two individuals with a valid driving license are eligible to participate in this event through the use of their own car. Participating in the Discover Jordan Rally Tour does not require special skills from any of its drivers, with primary focus being placed on road and public safety above everything else.
The Discover Jordan Rally Tour Facebook Page provides participants with the necessary information about the event, regulations and registration process. iSports is also working hand in hand with concerned authorities and entities to ensure an easy and safe experience for all participants.
The rich program planned for participants is over two days. On day one, the rally will kick off in Amman and pass through sites including Jerash, Dibbin, Ajloun, Um Qais, Pella and the Baptism Site. On day two, participants will head to the likes of the Panorama Dead Sea, Kings Road, Al Mujeb water dam, Karak Castle, Dana reserve and Petra. Throughout the two day tour, participants will take part in an adventurous treasure hunt as they roam through jaw dropping destinations.
In the evening of the second day, a special ceremony will take place to honor the winners of the first-ever Discover Jordan Rally Tour.
The rally is expected to attract significant media coverage locally, regionally and internationally. A press conference will be held to announce details about the event and the registration process.
