Hi all

Popping in to share an amazing trip that I've just returned from!

Dates: 27 Nov - 30 Dec 2014
Filmed from my GoPro Hero2 driving my 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo.
Route: Dubai - Oman - AlAin (Jebel Hafeet) - Dubai

Shipped our cars from all over the Middle East to Dubai, UAE for the start of an epic weekend. Had some guests join us from across the pond as well such as Shmee150 who covered most of the media on the event!

My video starts from Jebel Hafeet on the return journey on the way back to Dubai. Would have covered the beginning of the trip but forgot that when you pull the key card from the hotel wall, the power shuts, and so my GoPro, though plugged into the wall, was not charging!

Anyway, we had some amazing cars with us for this awesome event which was very well organised.

Cars ranged from Porsche Turbos, GT3s, Gemballa Avalanche GT650, McLaren (MP4-12cs and 650Ss and a mighty P1), Ford GT, Koenigsegg Agera, Lamborghini Gallardo (LP560s, a Valentino Balbone, a Super Trofeo Stradale, a Superleggera), Lamborghini Aventadors, Ferraris (458s, F12s, 599s, 430s, a 360 spyder), Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG Silver Arrow Edition, Audi R8 V10, Lotus Exige S, to name a few, came from all over the Middle East.

Mind you, very very few of these cars are actually stock. Most of them are tuned and some more heavily modified. Keep a listen out in the video for the white Aventador with Capristo exhaust and the red Gallardo Super Trofeo thats heavily modified from head-to-toe. Red 991 Turbo S also has a great exhaust system and set-up.

Made a lot of new friends during this trip and met a lot of fun and some crazy people! Hoping to be part of future club events, which would hopefully spread across the world to Europe and potentially one day to the U.S.

Anyway, here is my video. Enjoy!

The roads are all so nice there! Where was the final destination in Oman? I think Muscat is the cleanest city I've ever been to. Great pics!!!

^ Roads are awesome. But like Dubai, every few miles there's a speed camera. So, behave till you pass it then put your foot down...and repeat. lol.

We went to Sohar actually had lunch there then went back into the UAE to AlAin where the windy mountain road was. We were behind schedule though coz the Omani border crossing took ages in and back out again. So tiring but fun.
