What a beautiful day it was!
We all met at Nahel gas station and everyone was on time. After a quick attendance we promptly departed towards the deflation point, which took us approximately 20 minutes. Everyone started deflating and in about 25 minutes after a quick briefing we started moving in the dunes.
In about 5 minutes into the drive we had our first stuck from Osama where he was bellied out on a straight crest, thanks to the support team the recovery was done promptly and we were back on the move. Bravo to everyone in the convoy as we had to cross a specific section to enter our targeted area to start where the big dunes were waiting for us :D
We started zigzagging, climbing high dunes by taking high-speed approach the spirits and adrenaline was high. Then we had our fist pop-out as the member deviated from the track and everyone got the chance to witness how its fines. Thanks again to our support team it was fixed promptly and we started moving again.
As the level was challenging we had a few second attempts and this gave the members the chance to know their cars, how much power to apply and what it can do.
We reached the farms where we took a short tea break thanks to Marshal Khalid after which we switched the lead to give the members a different taste.
At around 6pm we reached the finish point with beautiful smiles.
Thank you all the marshals who joined to support this trip and also thanks to Bhavesh for the great second lead and Irfan for support.
