The highlight feature of the festival is the adventurous race to the top of one of the world’s highest sand hills – the Moreeb Dune, which means ‘Terrifying Mountain’. At over 300m high and with a 50° angle, the dune will be contested over various categories for different car and bike types.

Friday 5th:

Notes:
- Your car needs to be in perfect condition. Take it for a safety sanity check before you hit the road.
- Carry all required equipments (radio, flag, compressor, recovery rope, shackles, deflator, pressure gauge...)
- Bring all the required food, equipment, wood, lighting, sleeping bags, bbq items...
- Carry extra fuel. 60 liters would put you in the safe spot. We will not stop by any gas station to refill within both days.
- It is not recommended to bring kids under 16 years old.
- Since the area will be very crowded, we insist that you maintain discipline and respect the Marshalls' advices.


Fees:
- This drive is free of charge for registered DO members who have paid their annual membership fees.
- Unregistered members are required to pay AED 300/car to participate in this drive. This will eventually make you a DO member.


This event happens once a year. We look forward to making the best out of it with everyone!
