Default Charitable Sunday Drive : The 2017 Blind Man Car Rally (Mumbai). EDIT: BHPian Reverse_Gear wins it!!

Team,

It's time to revv up our engines for a cause, and have a lot of fun while at it!



In a nutshell, you:

- Start from NSCI (Worli) and drive through empty Mumbai roads on a Sunday morning
- A visually impaired navigator will read out the route map to you
- Maintain the correct route, and pass through designated check points
- Reach NSCI for the award ceremony and lunch

To view FlyingSpur's awesome report + pictures on the earlier editions, click here and here. Pics from last year are at this link.

How to register?

It's simpler this year - BookMyShow Link. In the licence field, enter the last 7 characters of your DL. Keep the navigator's field blank.

Registration per car is Rs. 2,500/- (exempted under Income Tax 80G). Round Table India is a “Zero Overhead Organisation” i.e. all the money that is received as donation is used toward the projects. No donation money is used for administrative or any other expenses. The long term project of RTI is “Freedom through Education” wherein they build schools for underprivileged children. Till now, RTI has built approximately 2172 schools & 5377 classrooms, benefiting more than 6 million children.

How will your participation help? Projects.pdf

More information - BMR 2017.pdf

Drivers: Please add your names & continue the list. Let's gather at Worli Seaface (outside Mafco) at 0730 hours and drive together to NSCI.

Feels sad to say this, But i won't be in town on 12-13-14th Feb, I was really looking forward for this and unfortunately it comes on a date which i can't postpone, People who haven't been to this event yet, Trust me its an experience to be felt, My last years navigator was amazing to say the least, I learnt a lot from her, Along with this experience you get to meet our fellow Bhpian's too and in the end its all for an amazing cause too! Its worth getting up early for an event like this, I had immense fun in finding checkpoints and roads, Never my Navigator got lost but i did

Ill miss the fun, Ill miss meeting fellow bhpian's this time around, People who haven't been to this event yet, Go for it!

Ouch GTO. Really happy to get the invite, but have already made plans with family to go out of town. Should there be a be any change in my itinerary, will be there. Else, am sure will read all about in one of your fantastic 5 star reports.

Have fun & be safe. Cheers

I registered through this link but it didn't ask for license details. Now I am confused whether I registered as driver or bought ticket as spectator?

Thanks GTO for posting this. Normal Sunday activities include trying to wake up by noon, thinking of what to eat, getting tired from the stress of deciding what to eat and falling asleep again. This rally should be a great way to break that pattern and be a change to meet some fellow enthusiasts. Cheers.

There's no spectator tickets, so should be registered as a driver only.

They tend to be a little disorganised. I would not be surprised if you are contacted shortly to fill up the registration form. I have attached the form for those who want to contact the organisers directly and send over the form. The contact numbers of Lokanathan and Vishal who are coordinating are in the form.

Ouch! This is the second weekend of Feb - so I am not available.
I have a medical checkup scheduled too. So... sad to miss this. Maybe next time.

Open roads to drive in Mumbai. What a dream! Would have loved to take my new Rapid out for this one, but sadly I'm out of town :(
