Desert Champions Trophy - 2021

Leaders Lead - II - Learn to lead the desert drive - 16 Oct 2021

Recommended Posts

Congratulations @M.Seidam @Hisham Masaad and @Shaz Shah  for successfully completing the first session of leaders lead with flying colors.

As you all have learned the basics first and demonstrated a perfect way to lead an independent drive in the desert, now it's your chance to work on the routing and planning skills.

You will be learning the basics of leading the convoy in the desert in three different steps:

  1. Advance sand reading, plan your lead, plan your exits.
  2. Use of navigational software for selecting the right course of path.
  3. How to systematically scale the lead for all the cars in the convoy.

In this second session of leaders lead you will be leading with the help of off-road navigation app or device. You can choose any device or app (motionx, gaia, mytrail etc) and mark these basic points and you will be required to reach any one or few of them:

  1. Entry and Exit
    1. Solar Park
    2. Al Qudra Desert
    3. Opp Bab Al Shams
  2. Mark long range playable dunes
  3. Mark pylon tracks, cycle tracks
  4. Mark as many sabka, flat track or easy exits in case of emergency
  5. Mark fencing or restricted area
  6. Mark technical dunes

P.S. I will personally check each of your device to verify and help you further.

@Hisham Masaad, yes luckily you had time at 6:00 because it’s well known you’d NEVER check the forum while at work ;) 

good luck with the drive ! I am counting days before I can drive under your lead !
