Women Car rally is unique initiative started by Uthaan in 2007.

There was no Car rally for women at that time and Uthaan being a Woman centric organization took the challenge of organizing it first time in 2007. We started with 28 brave ladies in 2007 and set up Indian Record of India's Longest Women Car rally that year itself. Since then this event is growing by leaps and bounds - In fact now we get participants from Bhopal, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad and Chennai. Last year in 2011 there were 96 participants.

Women Car Rally is meant for those Ladies who dare to take part in Rallies but so far not able to do it by some reasons. This is based on TSD format Viz Time, Speed and Distance. Rally is more towards adhering road rules and regulation and than winning it.

It remains most of the time on main roads with 5% off roader. However lot of interesting formats are added subsequently e.g. reverse driving (breaking another myth that ladies cannot back the vehicle).

Rally takes the participants to Rural India - we make sure they interact with Local artisans like potters, blacksmiths to have real interaction. NGO is working at grass root level so we take participants to meet our real workers and members.
