Afternoon Intermediate Desert Drive - "Il Sorpasso": Al Ain District to Dubai - 10 June 2022

Recommended Posts

This drive is organized in full compliance with the COVID19 guidelines. We expect every member that joins this drive to go through below information and strictly follow these guidelines.




Drive Details

Level:  Intermediate and above 

Meeting time: 3:30 PM (SHARP - Without any exceptions)

Meeting Point: 24°33'02.8"N 55°34'32.0"E

Action Plan:  The Rush Hour saga has a sequel: "Il Sorpasso" means "to pass another car" in Italian, and is the title of a movie released in 1962, in which the protagonist drives a Lancia Aurelia Cabriolet, oblivious to traffic, cops, people and other cars, passing them with gusto...honking and making gestures 🤘... And so will we (sort of....), except off-road. From Al Ain District, more precisely Al Hayer to Faqa, to Lisaili (Inshallah). We'll drive longer than the Rush Hour series, adding an extra hour, and hopefully an extra 30 Km, to cover, if all goes well, 90 Kms in 3 hours. Departure is scheduled exactly at 3:30 PM (meeting time will be from 3:00 PM onward, so that we'll be all ready to start precisely at 3:30PM). The drive will end, wherever we'll be (with exit points planned nearby our route), at exactly 6:30 PM, or upon covering 30+30+30 Km, whichever comes first. The goal is to drive at a minimum average moving speed of 30Km/h.  

Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

What to bring along: Loads of water, snacks (for yourself), smiles, face mask, rubber gloves, enthusiasm and willingness to learn.

Approximate finish time: 7:00 PM (including the possibility of a 30 minute extension to reach the exit)

P.S. Only join if you have a compressor to inflate your tires after the drive.

Hope this is not going to be included in weekend drives, with the one drive limit 🤞🤞🙏

I think the weekend drives for one drive will be Saturday & Sunday.
