VISION CAR RALLY :
The car rally for the Visually Impaired is a rally which is based on the concepts of a professional Time-Speed-Distance rally. However the car rally has been modified slightly where the sighted driver is 'shown' the way by a visually impaired navigator by reading the braille route chart.
View the video below to understand what a Time-Speed-Distance Rally (TSD) is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEoV7pQrHp8&sns=em
To provide the participant with a feeling of adventure and fun with your family It also provides satisfaction of trying to understand the challenges faced by visually impaired person and their skills in reading Braille. It gives an opportunity to the visually impaired navigator to show his/her skill.
The car rally is not a race. While the race is all about speed, car rally is a much more complex sport. The skills required in a car rally are:
Acute sense of direction
Ability of mental arithmetic
Good driving skills
Fast Coordination of skills like listening, calculating, visualizing, driving etc.
Typical Route :
Round Table car rally typically runs for 40-45 kms about 1 hr 30 mins approx. The route is very carefully picked up after about dozen of route surveys and includes a variety of tracks including - Highway, main road, side road, tarmac road etc.
“Other car rallies build a sense of enmity & competition. But by this car rally we have built New & Strong relations of ever lasting friendships”.
Navigator : Visually Impaired navigators will be arranged by National Federation of the blind
