Dear Desert Drivers, 

Thank you for signing up for the drive on Saturday morning. As you know from your recent drives, the sand will be soft, the temperature will rise very rapidly, we might have some wind... real desert conditions, but still good to enjoy a nice ride through the hot sands of Faqa. Most of you know the area already, we will have technical portions, but also large open dunes and high ridges. 

We will try to keep the drive as fluid as possible. The sand will be soft, and soft shall be your driving. Remember that momentum is key in these conditions, to keep your car moving and to "float" on the soft patches. Avoid any sharp turn, sudden acceleration or breaking, keep your car moving, especially on ridges, or on flat soft pockets, and when you need to stop, do it as far as possible on an incline (downwards) or on hard surface. Also the slip faces will be even more slippery, so don't take any chance, go straight down, and avoid any situation where you will get stuck sideways on a steep incline.

I will confirm the convoy order tomorrow at the end of the afternoon. We still have a few candidates for the wait list, please let me know incase you change your plan, so that we can give them a chance to participate.

Stay tuned for the next update !

Thanks Jerome for an amazing drive.. It was something else, an amazing variety of terrain, tight technical, side sloping and most importantly great ridge riding... What a blast.
