The long-awaited 25th Edition of the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge started with the usual Super Special Stage on Saturday 28th March. Unlike previous years, when it had been held on a rough gravel track, this year it took place on the Yas Marina.
The motorbikes and quads did not compete round the circuit (as they are set up for sand driving with offroad tyres), but each did a couple of laps at a relatively sedate pace.
The fun started when the cars took to the track – we had a couple of minor dents, someone lost a wheel and a few drivers took the tight corner a tad too quickly.
