Disabled drivers and passengers are being asked to take part in a new motoring rally.
The IWA is holding a Disabled Drivers’ and Passengers Rally on Saturday in Athlone in celebration of its 50th anniversary, and hopes to gather more than 50 drivers and passengers with disabilities to participate in the event. This is a national event with drivers and passengers coming together from all over Ireland.
Contestants will follow directions over four stages, setting off from the starting point at minute intervals while maintaining a pre-set average speed. Points will be deducted from contestants if the finish the stage too early or too late. Average speed will be recorded and calculated at non-disclosed locations, as well as at the finishing line.
Prizes will be awarded in a number of categories, and will be presented at a function in the Shamrock Lodge that evening.
This is a unique opportunity for disabled drivers and disabled passengers to participate in a motoring competition with other disabled drivers and passengers, while also having lots of fun.
The IWA Disabled Drivers’ Rally will be held on Saturday, starting and finishing at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in Athlone, Co Westmeath. For further information contact Niall McDonnell/Tony Maher 045-893094. Email: [email protected], website: www.iwa.ie
