Off-Road Tour II Over Four Peaks
Join us in your Cayenne or Macan (or other 4-wheel drive vehicle) for a longer off road tour than our first off-road event, in 2019. The route will have about 2.5 – 3 hours of off-road driving which will include several stops for pictures and enjoying the view with friends and family. We will also have a catered barbeque lunch along the way. The cost is $7.50 per person.
The tour’s plan is to enjoy a half day of off-road driving along a route that consists of varying terrain of mostly single car-width dirt and rock trails with some wider sand wash areas. The trails are very scenic and will mostly require very low speeds to manage due to the tight turns, uneven surfaces, steep grades, and slippery rocks or deep dirt/sand. This will be a beginner’s tour like our first but much longer to learn how to take your Cayenne or Macan (or other four-wheel-drive vehicle) off road safely and to show you what it is capable of. You can expect your vehicle to get dusty and possibly a little muddy depending on trail and weather conditions, but the intention of this drive is to experience your Porsche SUV off the pavement, without anything getting damaged.
This event will give you the comfort through direct experience in your vehicle to manage its off-road technologic functions, and safely and more predictably drive off-pavement trails, which the Cayenne and Macan do with impressive ease. If all goes favorably, at the end of the trail drive, a healthy car wash should be all that is needed to return your Porsche SUV to its garage queen status and remove any evidence of its off-roading adventures, with only your pictures and memory of the experience remaining!
The off-road portion will end at Roosevelt Lake and will return on the Beeline Highway to Fountain Hills. Street tires will be fine but it is best if they have good tread. I recommend lowering your tire pressure at the beginning of the tour for a better and more comfortable ride. If you have equipment concerns about your Cayenne or Macan, please contact event organizer Steve Sapareto to discuss.
