Advanced Junior 2
Different start of a day with heavy rain pouring from 7:30!
We had to delay the start of the trip from 8 to 8:30 because of the lightning bolts.
First part of the trip was mostly side slopes to warm up first and a bit faster pace later.
We did a break and a briefing specific on approach to crest and driving on top of the crest. After that we moved to the practical part on very low dunes to get the Juniors the first taste of cresting. Everyone did very well on the lower dunes. A few stucks and second tries are part of the game.
After the trip picture we started tackling higher dunes and some problems with convoy discipline started to show up. Many more second tries this time and more stucks as well(even me!). Towards the end, drivers were not parking on correct position and not following the track precisely, also mistakes like fighting gravity were displayed. So I decided to finish the trip as drivers were loosing focus. After 57km we drove to the exit where a de-briefing took place.
Juniors, remember: all topics you’ve been learning must be very solid for you to move to the next level. So, always follow the instructions and topics we spoke about on the briefing. It’s the discipline you show now that will make a great off-roader level driver!
Thanks Sujith, Salah and Michael for the support.
Hope to see you guys soon on the next drive!
