Default Enjoyable Drive: Car Rally for the Blind. Mumbai on Sunday, 8th Feb 2015

Hi friends,

The annual Car Rally for the Blind is around the corner. It will be held on the second Sunday of February, which is 8th Feb 2015.

Registration fees (Rs. 2,500/- or Rs. 5,000/- or Rs. 10,000/- or Rs. 25,000/-) should be transferred to the following bank account:

BOMBAY ROUND TABLE NO. 2 CHARITABLE TRUST,
HDFC BANK,
SANTA CRUZ (WEST) BRANCH,
MUMBAI.*
C.A. NO.*00791000063227.
Ifsc Code:- HDFC0000079.

The amount goes towards the welfare of the visually impaired. Please note that there are limited seats (100) available.

The link to the facebook page for the rally is:

The link to the website of the rally is:
http://www.blindmancarrally.org/

Links to some earlier rally reports:

2014 Rally (Enjoyable Drive: The 2014 Blind Man Car Rally, Mumbai. Sunday, 2nd February)

2013 Rally (Report and Pics: Blind Man Car Rally, 2013)

A brief overview for the newbies:
  • The rally is organised by Bombay Round Table 2. It is a a TSD (Time Speed Distance) event, where reaching at the right time is more important than reaching early. In fact reaching early has a penalty just as reaching late has.
  • You are NOT permitted to exceed the speed limit prescribed on the roads. You are expected to get, and will drive your own car
  • Each car is assigned a blind navigator. This navigator is given a Tulip chart, printed in Braille. Only the navigator can read it, unless you know braille. You need to drive as per the instructions read out by the navigator.
  • Throughout the route there are check points which you must visit and get your time punched. Missing a check point means you are out of the race.
Overall, it's a hugely enjoyable event where you will interact with the blind navigator and go home amazed and impressed.

I have transferred the money, there is going to be a clash of two events, but my heart is all for the rally. Let's see if I can achieve a respectable finish this year.

The message did say we should register by 31st Dec, but maybe you could get lucky.
You may try nine eight two one three two one six double two to reach Mr. Vishal Mirpuri to know if any places are available yet.

The venue is the NSCI grounds at Worli instead of NAB.
It's on their Facebook page too.

I'm in too. Will be my fourth attempt, and since every year have improved a bit on the rank, so hopefully will do so again. Hugely enjoyable.
