Desert Champions Trophy - 2021 - Winning Team

Morning Intermediate Desert Drive - Wathba Fossil Dunes / Salt Lake to Razeen Wonder Crests - Abu Dhabi - 27 Nov 2021


Recommended Posts

Drive Brief
The Al Wathba Fossil Dunes and the Al Wathba Salt Lake in Abu Dhabi are one of those renown places in the UAE that make the cover of off-roading books and advertisements. This Intermediate Drive, planned two weeks ago and then cancelled due to logistic issues, is now proposed again upon great popular demand, and will take the convoy for a stroll across the surreal landscape of Al Wathba Fossil Dunes moving from Lane 2006 at dawn at 6:30am, so that the photography lovers will have the chance to capture the beauty of this place during the morning golden hour after sunrise.

We will then swiftly move to the south side of the Al Wathba Salt Lake, entering a stretch of beautiful, large, light sand dunes totally unknown to the most.

Progressively moving East, we will cruise across virgin dunes along a non-stop, fast paced drive, that will take us all the way to Razeen Road in an almost 90km long drive, a great discovery adventure which will culminate in a breathtaking Gran Finale in Razeen Area, the perfect terrain to enjoy high climbing, fast criss-crossings and deep dives along endless slip faces.

DRIVE REPORT Dear Desert Wanderers,  What a drive, what a day!!  It all started with some disappointment, as we made our way to Fossil Dunes at sunrise, ready to frame in some nice phot

@Lorenzo Candelpergher, this drive was amazing and for sure to keep in the records ! Every thing was there. Beautiful empty spaces, endless climbing and side sloping, breathtaking crest crossing,

What a fabulous drive! Even more exciting than what Lorenzo had billed it to be while posting. If I was (a bit) tired after a 90 mins drive to the meeting point following a long Friday escapade, there

Please WL me. 2nd drive

@Lorenzo Candelpergher as this is a repost of an earlier drive which was cancelled you can add me after considering all the participants of the cancelled drive and a spot becomes available after everyone from that drive gets a spot.

Dear @Thomas Varghese, every drive is a standalone event and is newly posted according to the usual @Carnity rules as a matter of giving everyone a fair and equal chance.

The fact that the previous drive was canceled was an unfortunate circumstance but it doesn't give priority to any of those who had then responded the RSVP. I hope you understand.
