Well honestly, Team-BHP - I didn't expect a huge turnout. Now I figure most of you guys are too busy having fun, planning drives, meets and ways to win the speed run to do something for the blind people on Sunday.
I am not referring to those members who have genuine reasons, just the ones who are so ultra enthusiastic on every other thread that needs their time and their cars. This poor thread is just going to touch page 2.

It's cool, at least we know where you guys stand when it comes to a good cause.

Cyrus baba, I'll see you there. I'll be in my white Verna CRDi. The twins will be riding with me. The pretty girls, not the swifts.

Sigh...

Cyrus (& Yeti),

You are lucky you got number 1. Atleast you can stop quickly on the side of the road without losing much time. I pity the guy who got number 2.

But, in all seriousness, please take some photos and put up a nice write up afterwards. It IS sad that such a huge memberpool only had a turnout of 4 people, but dont give up hope, spreading the word (like you can do with the pics & report) will create awareness, and hopefully will have a positive effect on next year's turnout!

I'm back. I was number 31. It was a wonderful experience. I had a fun time with 4 girls in the car. The pretty twins were there and so was my beautiful navigator, little Pari and Pari's mom.

It was a lot of fun and quite heart warming. There were 3 Team-BHPians present amongst all the cars, Yogi1771, Cyrus and I.

The twins were very surprised, they said wow, we have heard so much about Team-BHP and its thousands of car lover members, where are they?

I told them this was a drive for a good cause, for charity and therefore not the right place to find Team-BHPians.

I've asked them to come to Speed Run to find BHPians finding time to travel from all over India, let alone mumbai.

Burning fuel only for speed, self-satisfaction and glory! That's the true spirit of this forum, I told them.

Good to know U had fun and did it for a charitable cause,Sam.
We cant change certain things no matter what we shout here. So, lets leave it at that and make sure we dont miss any charity events.
Cheers

Had a superb time today as this was the first time i ever took part in a rally with all the confusion of finding the landmarks as well as the checkpoints.

Man was running around in circle's along with a few more cars at Five gardens to find the checkpoint upon that my navigators English was bad so every time a flyover was mentioned in his sheet's he would either say flower,floor & every time i corrected him he used to grin but at the end of the day it was great fun

P.S Even had the chance to meet the beautiful twins.

Sam, you should have come for the Fiat Club Rally in Pune last Jan 26th. We held it in conjunction with the Blind school, the kids amazed us. Their dances and shows in formation couldn't be replicated by most sighted people.

I think i should add this,was thinking later why my navigator(Mr Gopal) was repeating the same mistakes(regarding the flyover and there where a few more) again & again,i feel in his eagerness to read the sheet's(some landmarkss were within half a Km or somewhere around) he first had to feel it register & then convey it to me,while i have seen people which includes me with having normal eyesight do mistakes while reading in pressure situations.

So Hats off to all the Navigator's of the Blind Man Rally

P.S As regarding the pressure situation these members(navigator's) really what to win the rally while we may take it as fun thing,came to know about it later while waiting for the price distribution seeing their anticipation

JUst to fill you in guys - I went for the Ceat Car Rally for the Blind in Mumbai in 1990. I thoroughly enjoyed the event. The car was MMY43 with twin carburettors (my that car was a bomb !).

I am glad you all enjoyed too. Cyrus dikra - better luck next time.
