T H E Y C A L L H I M T H E Y O D A O F THE SANDS Yakub Dino is no show-off. Reserved and gentle, he doesn’t talk big among the technicians and engineers at the Jaguar Land Rover Test Centre in Dubai. So why is he known to everyone as The Yoda of the Sands? It’s because this guy has special powers. Above is an image of Dino driving the Range Rover Sport SVR – the most powerful Land Rover ever – at a place named the Sand Bowl in the Arabian Desert. It is the toughest hot test site used by Jaguar Land Rover and Dino is the only man who is allowed to tackle the Sand Bowl. Stints in the military and desert tourism gave Dino his grounding in driving on sand. The rest is instinct. The Sand Bowl is a steep-sided pit that every Land Rover vehicle is tested against in temperatures over 50ºC. Holding to the sides of the Bowl while sliding through liquid dunes takes serious sand-driving skills. That’s why you need Yoda.
