  1. Fun and challenging afternoon, some soft and tricky patches in places. For most of you these are still early days in your off road driving careers, so with the introduction of slide sloping techniques was invaluable today, skills building step by step is key to your development and learning to master the sands. Most of today's issues were caused by a lack of momentum, this comes with experience but learning to know when you keep moving, feeding power in to overcome the softer areas and remain committed to the obstacle in hand, I also noticed drivers stopping very close to the car in front, ple
  2. yes, another Raptor, well done, see you this afternoon

  7. Difficult one today, despite the valiant and hard fought efforts of our Lead, the desert has been decimated by bulldozers, carving tracks for the incoming Seismic surveys, a sign of the times I'm afraid. Everyone drove well, showed great team spirit on the occasion it was needed on the side of a bulldozer track, and we were rewarded with some excellent bowls and side slopes towards the end, I have put some photos in the gallery.
