    I’m honestly surprised he didn’t use the position of the sun to figure out where north is, or is there something I missed that would’ve made that difficult for some reason?

    Sun everywhere. Why not carry a gps tracker with an emergency button that all works off satellites, recharged the solar panels?! And the gps tracking should always be on, so that in the case of going off the track it would alert him and the people overseeing the race. Better yet. Don't race in such an extreme place?!

    Spoiler alert: I have a question- Looking at the map of where he ended up, he was heading southwest for much of the trip. If he had a compass, why wouldn’t he go north if that is the direction he was supposed to go? Also, based on the race location in Morocco, civilization would be in that direction. There is nothing but barren desert if you go south.
