Drive Details

When:  23 June 2021, Wednesday.

Meeting time: 4:00 PM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)

Action Plan: We'll take a quick route from Solar Park to the entry area of Little Sweihan, a triangular shaped set of long range, tall dunes, full of canyons and bowls, which owes its nickname to some similarities with the "original" area in AD. We'll explore this part of Dubai's desert, running up and down its length, zig-zagging north to south, from the base of the triangle to its tip, and back. Concentration and skills will be required to manage some complex passages, and patience will be needed in case of rerouting.

Dear Desertnauts.

Last minute info about tomorrow's drive. We'll meet a short distance after the Solar Park "glass pyramid", pointing in a westerly direction, parallel to the bike track, which we'll follow as much as possible, until we reach a sand track that will take us to Little Sweihan.

Here we'll explore its length, multiple times, each one moving further south, until we'll reach the sabkha that separates this area from the northern reaches of Abu Dhabi (without ever coming close to the border). There'll be plenty to practice, from finesse driving in tight dunes, to faster pace, roller-coaster bowl riding, and criss-crossing sharp dunes, often ruffled by the string winds that sweeps the area.

Our convoy order will be as follows:

@Lakshmi Narasimhan in Second Lead

@Ashok chaturvedi will follow at #3

@Humayun Ghias at #4

@Russ will be #5

@Darren Brooke at #6

@Ranjan Das will take spot #7, and 

@Gok Krish will Sweep.

No Center Forward, as each driver will take care of the cars in front and behind, with my assistance.

We'll pick the Carnity Channel at the meeting point. Come ready to drive, as punctual as possible, so we may depart as close to 4:00PM as possible.

See you tomorrow.
