Whilst in some Middle-Eastern countries women are banned from driving, Abir Batikhi, a modern Arab woman, is set to conquer the rally-driving world. Bakhiti sees competitive driving as a form of liberation.
Jordans best rally driver has a lot of fans. Even Jordans Prince Faisal bin Al Hussein supports Batikhi, It takes a lot of courage, perseverance, hard work and shes demonstrated all of those skills.” Abirs passion for the sport is quickly making her into a role model and she believes driving can help women feel empowered. You want to see naughty driving? I love it. Its in my blood. Its something I cannot live without.
