Flag off starts at 0800 hours and is spread across an hour with so many cars. In '09, we had about 8 - 10 checkpoints spread across town. Only your visually-impaired navigator can read the route out to you. Sample instructions would read : Left after 4.4 kms, then straight for 1 km, then u-turn at..... The roads don't have much traffic on Sunday morning, yet you can be penalised for arriving too early at the designated checkpoints. Best to drive at a regular pace. IIRC, we had driven from Worli Sea Face to Walkeshwar, then Marine Drive, Ballard Estate, back road to Parel, then to the Mumbai University area in Santacruz East. Expect about 40 kms of driving in total.

Did you check out FlyingSpur's report of the 2009 event? Linky (Report & Pics : The Blind Man Rally Experience, Feb 09.)

thanks bud. will do the needful.

Had just heard a bit about this event from Dippy before, then went through FlyingSpur's thread and wow it really is a great initiative.
I most likely am in.

a lot of us are doing it for the first time.
if you can drive and have a valid driving licence then you should definately go for it.
this would pretty much be my first Tbhp meet too.

I think we'd all like for you to come yourself! On the legality part, best to speak to the organisers.

As far as I have read the Rules, I think it is possible for someone to drive as your respresentative after your authorization. You can confirm with the organizers. But it would be fantastic to have you drive yourself. And the Nano is perfect
