Given the vast expanses of sand surrounding the United Arab Emirates, there’s no wonder that playing with cars and off-roaders in the sand dunes is a favorite pastime in the area. In this spectacular video from Team BlackSheep, they use their flying drones to capture Team EZBA in their Funco Motorsports dune buggies tearing up the sand.

These open cockpit wheelie machines have as much as 800 horsepower and plentiful torque to help them rip through the loose sand, spewing it from their tires like the wake of a JetSki. We noticed that a couple of them have windshields to keep the sand out of the driver’s face, but most of them are wide open to the elements.
