Racing in the desert compares with nothing else and one small error can let you stranded in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, thanks to today’s telecommunication advancement, you won’t die and get rescued in a couple of hours.
Of course, the main thing that will try to get you is the heat and wearing a fireproof suit while driving into metal box that can heat up to 70 degrees Celsius compares with no other form of racing whatsoever.

And if the heat won’t stop you to put the starting line way back into the rearview mirror, the fine sand will do its best. Usually found in large dunes, the sand will make sure that you get confused and it will always try to make you approach its overly-dried humps at the wrong angle and surprise you with a steep fall after.

Check the video bellow to see what are the other ways that sand can get you.
