I'm not a physicist of any sort, but I would expect that if you don't supply any inputs to the vehicle (accelerate, decelerate, steer) you would pass over the gravel/sand with no problem (aside from potential paint chipping as mentioned). I grew up driving on a lot of gravel roads, and unless the gravel had just been put down, we crazy teenagers (and some of the grizzled farmers) would easily hit highway speeds (50-70 mph). And the slowing for new gravel was more about throwing rocks around then handling (although there was a handling component).
