One Last Drive Before Summer

Gear Up members revved their engines and hit the road for one last ride before the summer heat set in. The 30-strong group gathered at Cars Café in Motor City for coffee and introductions before making their way to the base of Jebel Jais, the highest mountain in the UAE.

The group began their ascent of Jebel Jais in staggered intervals, allowing each driver to experience one of the region’s best roads at their own pace. The hairpin turns and stunning views were a feast for the senses, and the drivers soon grinned from ear to ear.

After reaching the summit, the group reconvened for a delicious three-course lunch at 1484 By Puro. The food was paired with fine conversation as drivers swapped stories and shared their passion for cars.

With full stomachs and even fuller hearts, the group descended Jebel Jais and drove back to Dubai. Everyone had a fantastic day and enjoyed winding down before the new event season starts again in October.
