Part of 2019 FIA World Cup for Cross Country Bajas, the 2019 Jordan Baja will be run from 19th to 21st of September, in the Wadi Rum area, south of Jordan. The race organized by Jordan Motorsport will also have a national competition for those who do not wish to race against the "top guns" of rally-raid and a motorbike race, disputed according FIM rules.
The race's overall distance will be 807,5km of wich 453 are selective sections, with most of the route being draw in areas with sand.
For those used to a short prologue to warm up men and machines, Jordan Baja will come as a shock, with the participants facing the race head-on, the morning of friday 20/9, as they race SS1, the 180km long "Salh Yah" stage. Still on opposition to the most common pattern , Leg 1 will finish with a very short 3km stage (SS2 -Aqaba) at the end of the day to "decompress and relax".
On saturday two more stages must be raced, SS3 Qweirah with 90Km and SS4 Wadi Rum with 180.
The program is the same for all categories, with all following the same sequence of stages.
Entries are open and will close definitively on Sunday 1st. The participants that wish to take advantage of the reduced entry fee have only until the 17:00 (local time) of August 1st to make their entry.
