Desert Champions Trophy - 2021

Morning Newbie Desert Drive - Nature Lover: Sand to Mountain - RAK - 16 Oct 2021


Drive Details

Level:  Newbie and above 

Meeting time: 6:30 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)

Meeting Point: TBC - https://maps.app.goo.gl/46fWhG5bFY9VCQdz6

Off Al Shohadaa Road, past Sheik Khalifa Specialty Hospital.

Action Plan:  The drive's challenge will be mainly searching for the right path through an area rich with vegetation (trees and shrubs), animals (wild and raised), and with extended longitudinal dunes, with their very powdery, humpy and broken crests, and a few, spectacular, sabkhas. We may often use driven sand tracks taken by locals moving in between farms. The style of driving will be mostly technical (requiring finesse and control), with some safe ridge riding, testing a more complete set of off-roading skills, and providing a good opportunity to make you a more complete desert driver.

Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Approximate finish time: 10:30 AM

P.S. Only join if you have a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive.
