Fri PM Arabian Nights Intermediate

Post by Mytommi »

Intermediate Drivers: Dan (Dan29), Mang (mangtronix), Talha (Talhamuneer), Derek (Delboy), Suhas (Suhasthottoli), Gerhard (Dingo)

Support: Michael (EmDoc), Jean (Cantaloube), René (The Baron), Paul (Windy)

Trip lead: Thomas (Mytommy)

We all met in time and after the trip & safety briefing headed into the dunes North of the gatch road leading to the Arabian Nights Village.

Paul served as a solid Second Lead, while Dan acted as an efficient Sweeper.

The area proved to be challenging at times and we had a couple of second tries and stucks that were all handled well by the team. We had a couple of breaks to chill and enjoy the scenery.

For parts of the trip René and then Jean took over part-lead under Michael’s supervision. Both showed good judgment and lead us safely on flowy tracks through the dunes.

Towards the end of the trip we even had to deal with a torn tyre which took us some time to fix. We then headed back to the gatch road where we ended the trip already in the dark.

Thanks a lot to all who joined the trip and the support team in particular.
It was quite a satisfying trip I have to say and surely will repeat that soon…

I hope you liked it and will join me again in future trips…

Thanks
Mytommi

Very enjoyable. A good blend of technical and more open track choices at the right level for the group. Nice part leads by René and Jean. And the part night drive out was just icing on the cake. Great stuff. Till the next one

Thank you Thomas for this beautiful trip in an area where we don't often go. Thank you for giving me a piece of Lead under the supervision of Marshal Michael. It's very interesting to find your way for all the intermediate drivers who have done very well. Also glad to have followed René's technical route.
See you on the sand.

Thanks for organising this trip, Thomas. It was an enjoyable afternoon drive and a good trac - plus the added bonus of tire change, recoveries and unexpected night drive. Enjoyed part leading with Jean and thought all drivers did well!
