Leading a Land Rover convoy through Dubai in an open top classic Landie!
Back in 2012 the UAE Land Rover owner’s club held a parade through Dubai on Friday. Watch the entire parade from my mate Arif Al Yedaiwi’s lead car, his original Series 1, followed by 60 other Land Rovers and with a police escort. I filmed this on a GoPro with time lapse. The actual drive was an hour long, but here compressed to four minutes! Still love how it turned out.
From a Volvo test car to a Volvo Police car – it didn’t quite go to plan
I’ve been writing about cars and the car industry for nearly 30 years and exactly 29 years ago, on 30 August 1989, my first ever car review was published in The Saudi Gazette. And only now am I revealing that it nearly got me jailed!
Feel like complementing the Dubai Traffic Police today, for a couple of recent incidents.
