Dear Desert Drivers, 

The drive on Saturday will be a beautiful introduction to the Sweihan area, for those who have not yet driven there. You will see another dimension of desert, large open areas, high dunes, sharp ridges, high climbs, soft sands and tricky bowls. The distance to cover is quite long, and apart from a portion on track in the middle of the drive, the terrain will be challenging and you will need a continuous focus during the 4 hours.

Be sure to come with a fresh mind and a car in top condition to enjoy it fully !

As you can see, we have a long waitlist, so check your schedule and let me know in case you changed your plans or remove your RSVP to avoid empty spots on Saturday morning.

Hi, I just had a car issue that won't be fixed until next week. I have to pass the drive tomorrow. Hopefully it will bring some joy to the guys on the waitinglist. 

Have a nice day in the sand.
