Event Description

Save the date and contact me for driver application.

It's a timed auto sports event where a driver is paired with a visually impaired or blind co-pilot (navigator), who is responsible for reading the directions, in Braille or large print, and guiding the driver to the check points and through the course using public roads and ordinary traffic rules with the object of maintaining a specified average speed between checkpoints over a route unknown to the participants until the start of the event. It's not how fast you make it but whether you make it as close as possible to the optimal time while following all the rules of the road! This type of auto sports event is designed to promote Braille and literacy skills, sportsmanship, team effort, and to help students achieve a sense of accomplishment. The CenTex smart Club ( www.centexsmartclub.com ) is currently in negotiations to make smart cars the only car in this Central Texas event. Keep the date, November 15, 2008, for the possibility of this event and let me know what you think! Will we get enough smart cars to RULE the SCHOOL?
