At Let’s Drive we want everyone to get out and give things a try. So for this trip we have organized a fun filled adventurous drive.

Beginners are highly advised to attend!!!!

Let’s Drive will be hosting its very first Desert Olympics.

You will be split into teams 3-4 cars max per group. Each group must have 2 marshal (experience desert) and 1-2 beginners (done less that 3 desert drives). The location is a regular off-road spot which we have visited many times, near Sharjah (Tawi Trail).

We will be playing a variation on “Capture the Flag”. Teams will be required to drop and recover flags that will be placed strategically in the area. Fastest team wins! More details will be provided at the meet up point.

There is a limit on the number of teams cars that can register. Max of 5 groups of 3-4 cars each.

* There is a charge per vehicle for AED25 (This will go towards the winners prize)

** Important Note for passengers: We will not be assigning anyone to any car, please contact the drivers to be their +1.  : )
