Lyndon Poskitt – Dune To Dust Adventure Weekend with Nissan

A quick 3 day trip to a dry salt pan called Goerapan, 100km North of Upington, South Africa for a Nissan owners club meeting. I was invited last minute and figured a few days off the bike would be a welcome break and something different. The event was run in parallel with a local Rat Rod meet so there’s a bit or all sorts in this special feature. Naturally I joined forces with Red Lined Motorsport and we also took a T1 Dakar Spec Nissan Navara race car and a Nissan GTR (I know, the desert is no place for a GTR!). A lot of fun was had I was really amazed at the capabilities of the new Nissan Patrol production car off-road and also learnt a lot from driving a car in the dunes, very different to riding a bike.
