Vlog #15 – Porsche Desert Nav Rally

The Porsche Club Desert Nav Rally
19.9MB • 11m45s • get Quicktime

This is the first driving activity I participate in at the Porsche Club of Bahrain and it was very enjoyable. Arif was my navigator and I only managed to get lost once, but that wasn’t the issue. The real issue was that it was a timed event which we really didn’t understand, but as it is a Porsche, it was pedal to the metal all the way, only to arrive considerably early that penalised the bejeezus out of us!

Still, was a good day out driving through the back roads of Zallaq village, up-and-down strips of asphalt in the desert, and trying to solve clues and shoot a video while doing all of these things…

    thanks Sandee, you’re a star! On the next one I’ll make sure that I shoot the cars too. The next even is a Drag event at the Bahrain Int’l Circuit at night and all Porsche Club members are welcome. That should be a “real” pedal to the metal deal, with timing too.
