2018 Committee


David Baker Club Chairman: 

David owns a Land Rover LR3, no wait, David owns 2 LR3’s. David spends lots of money on repairs and modifications but David is happy as he has a fat and finds land rovers more comfortable than jeeps. David also has an out of control urge to buy camping stuff in the ultimate pursuit of comfort. Be like David.

Ian Campbell – Club Secretary:

This is Ian.

He is the club secretary.

He mostly does secretarial things.

He is a volunteer.

Ian appreciates the other volunteers.

Be like Ian

Sean Brody – Club Treasurer: 


Simon Hatfield – Chief Technical Officer:

 The role of the Technical advisor is to assist with technical matters. This can be for club events or out in the field. On many occasions this has involved the repair of vehicles out in the desert and there is much thanks for this service.

Ray Archer – Training Officer - Theory : 

I started driving off-road in the mountains of Oman about 12 years ago before the dreaded blacktop arrived. In fact at a time when a trip to Sur was a full day off road adventure. My first experience in sand was outside my local laundrette where I parked and got stuck....yes in sand! Deciding there was a lesson to be learned I bought my Wrangler and only wish I had got stuck earlier. Magic!I now help people to get experience, safely, in the sand by running ORAC courses and training events.

and Webmaster:

I have recently taken over the ORAC website (you are reading it) and am happy for feedback or printable suggestions.  rarcher@omantel.net.om

Tone Vold– Trip Coordinator:

I’ve been in Oman for 1,5 year and I’m in love with the amazing nature and wilderness of this country. To be able to go off roading where ever you like is rather unique and I would like Oman to stay this way. As a trip coordinator I can help and support other people exploring in a way that is environmentally sustainable and having a respectful and positive interaction with the native people. I’m driving a yellow FJ and loving it!

John Gill– Trip Coordinator:

I've been in Oman for almost 6 years and enjoy off-roading in many different environments – the deserts, wadis, mountains and the beaches. I’ve had some amazing experiences and I’m keen to support others in getting out and exploring Oman’s wilderness. As a trip coordinator you can expect to see me on ORAC trips generally helping-out, trying not to get stuck too much, and most importantly having fun!

Saleem– Trip Coordinator:

    I have a 2009 Wrangler Jeep and need to get it serviced. It’s now out of the MOPAR warranty and i was wondering if there’s a good jeep garage in Muscat?

    I’m also looking to do some modifications… Bigger wheels and lifting. So any advice where to get a good deal..

    Many thanks
