4th Raj Car Rally for visually challenged persons on 24th March!

009

Raj Car Rally with visually challenged persons has now become an annual event in Jaipur that contribute towards raising awareness about the abilities of the persons with disabilities.

In association with Team Jaipur, Himalayan Motorsports and Eye Bank Society, each year a Motorsport rally is being organised with a difference; where blind and visually impaired navigators will direct sighted drivers around the bustling streets of Jaipur.

This becomes a unique car rally in which the sighted driver virtually becomes “blind” and his blind navigator becomes “sighted”. Driving instructions will only be given in Braille, so it is up to the navigators to ensure the drivers know when to speed up, slow down, turn the right way and ensure their team crossed the finish line.

This rally works on the format called Time Distance and Speed (TDS format). The tulip chart (driving instructions chart) is given in Braille which a sighted person cannot read. So the blind navigator reads out the instructions on the speed, directions, etc which guides the car through the streets of city to the finish.

The rally will not only help in showcasing the potentials of the visually impaired persons and their talents but also demonstrate the solidarity from the citizens of Jaipur. 

This year 50 plus cars are participating  and the Technical support of the Rally will be provided by Himalyan Motor Sports Club 

The rally will starts  from Jai Club at 9.00 AM on 24th March, 2013 and will ends at Vatika Town Ship on Ajmer Road.

Scrutiny will be done on 23rd at Ashok Club form 9.30 AM onwards.
