Lebanese Rally Champion Roger Feghali has retained the fastest record for Al Hussein Rumman Hill Climb after winning the 2023 edition and breaking Jordan’s Khatshik Shadian 2019 record. Feghali had held the record for 12 long years from 2007 till 2019 before Shadian broke it.
At 49 years of age, Roger is definitely not slowing down and not yet ready to pass the torch to his young and talented son Alex Feghali.
For those who are not familiar with Al-Hussein Rumman Hill Climb, it is a 3KM course in length and 3m in width with an average rise of 8.5%. There are a total of 27 bends and corners including four hairpin bends. The event started as a competition among friends. His Majesty King Hussein patronised the opening of the Royal Automobile Club of Jordan in 1953 and took part in the first ever Rumman Hill Climb in 1956.
