Making sure all our venues are accessible and wheelchair friendly. Insuring all chargers en route are suitable and following the BSI Pass 1899 standard. 
The rally will bring a focus on what is possible. How we can get any driver with any kind of personal challegne into the Rally and competing. With the help of our marketing pedigree and public relations experience we will through press, digital /broadcast media, influencers and celebrity endorsements reinforce the message that anyone can get “home on the range’ we note that Motability run two or three roadshows per year promoting their services. We would like to run one per month for Motability through current PR and highlight what is possible.
We will look at the options available to ensure that we adapt our terms and logistical arrangements to accommodate all. The series of events throughout the year will provide huge exposure, content and coverage for Motability and we will ensure we highlight its aims and ambitions throughout the marketing campaign for the rally itself. Having worked with Ricky Perrin and the team GB wheelchair basketball squad comprehensively in 2022 we understand a lot more about specific needs and requirements.
