Thank you for joining the drive today. This area proved one more time to be amazing, offering big unspoiled dunes and beautiful desert views. The first portion starts progressively, with clean open dunes and some crossings and ridge riding, just to get in the mood. Then the dunes become higher, unveiling amazing views of the desert and sabkha around. Unfortunately @Mohammad Sayawoush Azad had to exit before reaching the highest point of the drive. (I hope the boys are ok). 

Driving in this area may look smooth and flowing, but considering the steep faces, the dimensions of some of the bowls or climbs, and the presence of deep sand pockets, it requires very accurate driving, and a perfect dosing of speed and momentum. Everyone managed well, but each of us could also immediately see the effect of not enough momentum, of too much energy coming out of a big curve.

The second part was more relaxed, with lower dunes, but still the high pace required accurate control and anticipation to maintain the balance of the car and ensure a smooth ride. We finished with a little gem, a totally unspoiled area, technical, then long open dunes, and technical again, before reaching the sabkha and the exit track.

@Mohit Gurnani, @Julien Recan @Amr A, thank you for joining, driving well, helping shoveling my car out,  and sharing friendly chat during the breaks. Enjoy the rest of the weekend !
