Though there are dunes, but they are not heavy, bystroprokhodaschee and the track is quite fast, it must go to the dynamics. The second day we had a fight with the Saudis, and at the finish he was no longer driving, but flying. It is necessary to know the characteristics of the highway, so allow yourself to rush.
Much difficulty is not experienced, rather, we get used to the sand, and this race was a great preparatory stage for the upcoming rally-RAID, which will be held in late March, also here in the Emirates.”
