Classic Cars are Queens of the Jordanian Desert

A Jordanian Classic

A Jordanian Classic

The Jordanian Royal Family’s love of classic cars and racing has been well documented, so it comes as no surprise that this October sees the return of the Jewel that is Jordan – a spectacular classic car rally set against the stunning desert scenery of Jordan.

There are many ways to explore this Middle Eastern gem, but few can be as indulgent and enjoyable as cruising to the Dead Sea – the lowest point on earth – in the comfort of a 1961 Mercedes Benz 300SL, or even a 1933 Lagonda M45 BMW once owned by HM King Abdullah II.

From 14 to 27 October, 2008, this year’s invitation only event, organised by entrepreneur Jonathon Lyons and supported by the Classic Car Committee of the Royal Automobile Club of Jordan, and the Jordan Tourism Board, will see 25 classic and vintage cars and participants from as far a field as Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Holland, South Africa, India, USA and Canada, as well as from Jordan, assembled and ready for departure in the Red Sea port-city of Aqaba.
