Absolute Newbie Desert Drive - Al Qudra - Dubai - 03 Dec 2021


Recommended Posts

Join us to explore Al Qudra Desert to find what's beyond Qudra lakes

And learn the art of offroading in a versatile playground for your first off-road adventure.

You will learn to self-drive your vehicle from experts having decades of off-roading experience in the UAE. This area offers a good mix of playable long set of dunes and broad ridges to practice your off-road skills slowly but surely.

@Vanessa8580 I am the “bitter half”

of @Looper. I will be driving his car obviously, that was supposed to be mine actually.

I Did an absolute newbie drive many months ago with @Frederic, but want to start again afresh hence signed up to this drive. Hope it is okay. 

PS: He is typing all this and I have read it 😑. I must also declare that I am coerced to drive this one but my “bitter half” is expectant i will do better in off-road. Let’s see how it works.

Welcome to Carnity Offroad Club ! I am looking forward to meet you all on Friday.

As this will be your first drive with us, i would like to ask you the following things:

1) Please introduce yourselves a bit: which 4x4 are you bringing, do you have any prior experience, and please confirm that your car has front and rear towpoints that are in good condition as well.

2) Please bring at the minimum a pressure gauge with tyre deflator, and air compressor to the drive this Friday, so you can deflate the tyres when you arrive, and re-inflate them again after the drive.  If you have an offroad flag, programmed radio, and other equipment already then of course you are welcome to bring them along. 

3) Please watch the Absolute Newbie Briefing video with your full attention. This one covers most of the basics and will definitely help you in being more comfortable for your first offroad drive.

If you have any questions prior to the drive, you can use this drive topic to post them. We will do our best to help you out.
