@Pancho if I’m not mistaken, you don’t have 5 drives at Fewbie level with Carnity, so I will ask you to sign out of this Fewbie Plus drive. Sorry.

DRIVE REPORT

Since @Lucky sAm had to cancel his participation (we hope that he will recover very soon), we were only 5 cars. Of course we love to have long convoys, but from time to time it's also nice to enjoy that kind of sweet little drive. Thanks @Jolly Abraham, @RohanH, @Jorge Stepniak Felippe and @AKR for managing very well and making this drive smooth and fun. 

All 4 cars were already waiting at 2nd December Cafeteria when I arrived about 10 minutes before meeting time, and most of them were already deflated, ready to move. After a quick briefing, as the daylight was on his way, we started gently heading to Pink rock, then, increasing the pace a bit, we found ourselves at the rear of Big Red in no time. After playing a bit on this lovely set of high dunes, we reached Big Red, and everyone reached the top from the back side, including @Jolly Abraham, my excellent second lead, who always impresses me with his 2.7L Fortuner. Unfortunately, we had to exit @AKR, who was sweeping, at Badayer, because his transmission was overheating and didn't cool down after he switched off the engine for some time. We headed back, in direction of Pink Rock with an even smaller convoy of 4 cars. It was a perfect opportunity to increase the pace and get closer to the intermediate level, which we gradually did as everyone seemed to me comfortable. @RohanH, who clearly gained some confidence since last time I saw him driving, only had a few refusals and one cresting during the all drive. Well done ! @Jorge Stepniak Felippe didn't struggle at all, I guess. Maybe he would just need a bit of practice in crisscrossing. Well, his LR4 wouldn't exactly agree on this last point : while we were getting closer to Pink Rock at good speed, Jorge announced on radio that his lateral airbags had deployed. Probably the car computer misread what is actually supposed to happen during a crisscross : a quick change in angles. Now you understand Jorge why in our newbie briefing, we ask drivers to disable the SRS. Sorry that you learnt it the hard way... After this incident, as it was almost time, I decided to finish the drive at slower pace and to exit at Nazwa. In spite of AKR's transmission overheating and Jorge's airbag incident, it's been a very nice drive. Congratulations everyone. Hasta la vista.
