Guys, this is the plan......

We leave Dubai on Friday 2 October 2009 at around 09H00 from the small spinneys in the Springs, and head out towards the East Coast.

From here on there are two options;

Option 1

Stay overnight in Fujairah on the Friday night and drive back with the guys staying over the next day. For those choosing to stay overnight, the hotel of choice is The Meridian Al Aqah Beach Resort;

For Hotel Bookings, please call Savio on +971 9 244 9000
My booking cost AED 1140 including taxes and surcharges, and if you want to go all out the Royal Suite is available for AED 1,500 including taxes and surcharges...

Option 2

Drive through and spend the day with the guys and drive back, late afternoon on Friday to Dubai. Preferrably not through the E88 Batayeh Road, cos it will be heavily laden with trucks.. trust me.. rather use the Masafi Road.

and we stay overnight and cruise back on Saturday, late in the day

Note:

We will not be alone this time, as members of the local ADPCC (Abu Dhabi Performance Car Club) are coming along, so there will be a few Lancia's ,Fiat's, amongst other Italian marques coming through for the day too....

A flyer is being made now, which will be dropped off at the various dealerships, Gargash (Alfa Romeo), Al Tayer (Ferrari and Maserati), Lamborghini Dubai, Al Ghandi (Fiat and Lancia), and I will keep you posted on the details.

Guys, please come out and support AO. These events take time to organise, so please show come out for the day. You don't have to spend the night in Fujairah, you can come through for Friday only and drive back the same day.

It was a better turnout than the last event and i guess we started slowly, but the numbers will grow!

p.s. Many thanks to Onno for letting me drive his Integrale... first time in an Integrale and on my birthday... what a brilliant weekend!

Stephen,

Thanks dude for uploading my pics. I still dont know how you guys can link thumbnails like this.

jukkha156

The drive took us from Dubai to Hatta. Then from Hatta to Kalba through the Hajar mountains. From Kalba to Fujeirah then up to Khor Fakan. The hotel is just outside Khor Fakan in an area called Aqa.

I didn't stay there this time, but the hotel is fantastic. Good place for diving or snorkling. Maybe you guys should arrange a London to Dubai Alfa drive :-))
