After few months, with lots of patience and kilometers on sand, Pradeep (Scorpio TP) is ready to move his boundaries towards new challenges.
We met at Al Qudra today for the first lesson of cresting for our Ab Initio 3 group. Now they are all advanced juniors and we are preparing them all to become off-roaders. People showed up before the time to deflate and were ready before 4:00, which is now becoming a good habit among desert fellas (keep it up guys). Continue Reading
Meeting up for a lovely afternoon ride almost everyone arrived on time. Rules, safety briefing and convoy order done by Salah and Marko.
We started with a soft warm up crossing some dunes and having a few stuck and second tries (lets remember to stop the convoy next time till the convoy order is back inline).
We met this morning for the Scopes And Slopes Trip in Sharjah. Although originally there was supposed to be two trips, one off-roader level and one advanced junior level, last minute mishaps forced us to combine both trips together which ended up in one big 15-car convoy. After deflation, a short safety briefing and a bit of a warm up, the fun all started.
Our meeting today was at the Badayer shops area. We reached there on time only to find the area congested with other fellow off-roaders. There were at least 40-50 other cars lined up to start their drives.
After we managed to locate each other, we deflated in no time, had a quick briefing and hit the sand right away. Today’s trip really had it all, from cresting n side cresting to sloping and switching, to speeding and also going through a fairly technical area. It was really full of excitement.
Our first destination was the Iftar Bowl. There along with a big number of other off-roaders, we had a chance to play each on his own for a while. It was awesome to drive up n down this enormous dune. Then we moved on to reach the Super Bowl, where it was so crowded that we just decided to move on. Today we did not encounter any stucks there were a few second and third tries every once in a while, but everybody managed to finish this trail without any need for recovery. Well done everyone!!
After about 53 kms of intense desert driving, we came out at the same spot we had gone in some three hours earlier.
