Full Day Intermediate Desert Drive - Bowls of Wagan - Abu Dhabi - 14 Jan 2023

Recommended Posts

Drive Info

Just to the north of Al Qua lies the wonderful virgin sands of Wagan that are famous for the massive stadium sized bowls and the infamous Pajero bowl. In this terrain, 360 degree bowls would be the nature of the game.

This will be the ultimate test of driver and machine. You will be redlining the engine, and your car will still crave for more. 

So drivers, Start your engines!!!

Important Points for all drive participants

  1. If this is your first IM drive, please think twice before joining. 
  2. Keep your car as light as possible. This is not a drive to have passengers.
  3. There is no need to carry extra fuel
  4. Ensure that you are with a tank full to the brim at the meeting point
  5. The plan is to end the drive when we run out of fuel (so please dont keep any kind of other appointments for that day). 
  6. Ensure that your car is in the best possible condition. 
  7. Ensure that you conserve fuel by turning the engine off at every break, else fuel would be supplied at a premium. 
  8. Bring some quick wrapped sandwiches or lunch to eat along the way.

@Zedonce again? 

i just changed to 15W-50 oil last week, it's too quiet now so the only way to hear the V8 sound and lubricate the engine is to rev it 5000rpm by climbing dunes 😂

Hi @Srikumar, would you agree that the Adnoc , Al Wagon Gas Station on Um Al Zamoul Road is the best option for refuelling ? 

it appears to be the closest one to the start point.
