Mumbai:  The much-anticipated and hugely-successful “Women's Car Rally to the Valley” will be held on March 25. This car rally is being organized to spread the message of women’s safety and to celebrate International Women’s Day and is expected to see participation from a total of 800-1000 women across the city and almost 200 cars.

The 10th edition of this all-women car rally will commence from NSCI, Mumbai at 06:30am and proceed through the city’s major landmarks such as Hajji Ali, Peddar Road, Chowpatty, Marine Drive, Churchgate before concluding at Lavassa City near Pune.  A team of celebrities will be present at the key points throughout the route of the rally to encourage the participants. The women drivers will be ensured a smooth ride with safety volunteers to be stationed throughout the route.

Nitin Dossa, Executive Chairman, Western India Automobile Association (WIAA) said, “Since WIAA’s prime focus is creating awareness in society about road safety, we have now taken the initiative to create awareness about women’s safety on roads, in public transport and in public places.”

Dossa also announced the 1st International expedition with all Women driven cars in the month of October and the flag-off will be done from Guwahati, Sikkim. This would be a 15-day rally from India to Thailand travessing through picturesque Myanmar and culminating in Sukhothai, Thailand during the 2800 kms journey.
