Definitely a memorable drive today ! Nice sand conditions, a group of determined and very capable drivers, and a beautiful play area.  A few of us were still sleepy during the briefing, but after the first 5 min of the drive, everyone was fully awake. The tall dunes of Sweihan were a perfect warm up, straight into the action. 

From one big bowl to the next high dune the convoy was flowing. Stay in the move, Don't break the flow, Watch your lines were the motives of the day. You all did really great, and I used this opportunity to really let you experience the thrill of a drive at higher speed, when we have to use the terrain and  the shape of the dunes to progress faster.

As you have seen, this also requires a very accurate driving, and understanding the dynamics of the car, as any mistake will immediately take you out of the game. Nothing major occurred,  but we had a tricky situation with 2 cars stuck one above the other with a steep incline, (one with a pop-out)... and rocks below! 

We managed to reach the top of the Old Lady dune,  and to enjoy the other set of high dunes close to Al Ain Airport. Very well done @Luke K P @Aser @Shaun J @Julien Recan @msa @Rk ram @Cristian @Frans M, this was really a FB++! Waiting for feed back and pics in the gallery (I see already a first batch), enjoy the weekend, and see you next time.

As expected ., the ride was action packed with the lead @JeromeFJ cruising through the huge dunes ... as though it was a flat ground for you....and the raptor following it with big two flags .... 👍

great ride and super in sync guys ... the whole convoy just drove as though they had known the place before.... 

Will be looking forward for more fun ... 🙂
