CHENNAI: The annual car rally for the blind being organised by the National Association for the Blind with the Madras Motor Sports Club will be held here on February 27, Alagu Muthu, President of the Association said on Monday. The rally attempts to bring together visually impaired and the sighted in an equal partnership.
In the rally, the navigator would read out the Braille instructions for the driver to follow the route. “This time, we have simplified the route as we had complaints about the difficult level of the rally last time,” said Ms. Muthu. “The event would not only help mainstreaming the blind, but also help them showcase their abilities,” she added. While over 100 navigators have already signed up, Ms. Muthu urged more drivers to register. The rally will be span a distance of 60 km, and will be flagged off at 9 a.m. from Hotel Savera. Executive director of the Savera Group Neena Reddy was present at a press conference to announce the rally, said a press release.
