We Rocked Sweihan

This was our 3rd visit to the same area of Sweihan in as many weeks, but endless swath of sand in Sweihan just refuses to disappoint. We pushed, pushed and still kept pushing. Endless side slopes, beautiful rolling dunes, criss crossing and bowls as big as stadium was the overall theme of yesterday's Sweihan drive.

To supplement this beautiful terrain we had an amazing set of drivers in @Hasan Wahlan @Ruan van den Heever @Farouq Owdeh and expertly swept by @Chaitanya D. Drivers that were brave and courageous, not afraid to push their cars to the limits.

We did stuff that probably we would not have imagined to do on a day drive, and that's the beauty of night drives. Bravo to the entire team of drivers for placing the trust in each other.

Big thanks to @Chaitanya D for supporting the drive and keep an eagle eye on the entire convoy.

Probably one of the finest night drive I have been a part  I look forward to catching up with you guys for another adventure in Sweihan very soon. Till then take care.

Thank you all for an epic drive. Nose dive and Monnique's screaming litt up the Sweihan night and echoed through the peacefull dessert. 

I can only say thank you for all the effort by every drive lead and sincerest appreciation for all the experience which you share with us to make us great drivers and able to tame the sands of time.
