I'd like to thank Faheem and Baher for leading the test. I have no idea if I passed but really enjoyed taking part nevertheless. I thought I knew the limits of my car and myself but obviously not. Both were definitely tested on this drive! We crested dunes and performed maneuvers that I never thought possible. It was an incredible adrenaline packed afternoon. Despite pushing my car and myself to the limits I never felt out of control or worried at any time. I loved the emphasis on safety and doing things right. I really learnt a lot about car positioning and feel for what the car is doing. By the end of the test I felt I was a different driver. Safer, more confident and more composed than before. Thanks again for the amazing afternoon drive.
