Rule Book1.
The SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 competition challenges teams of University undergraduateand graduate students to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with their own small,formula style, autocross racing cars. SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 organising committeewishes to give the participating teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom toexpress their creativity and imaginations AND hence, there are very few restrictions on theoverall vehicle design, which is reflected in the decision to allow up to 800 CC engine.Those teams who have intensions of participating in other events at a later date OR haveparticipated earlier in similar events are permitted to use such engine e.g. 625 CC engine.Teams typically spend little over twelve months in designing, building, testing andpreparing their vehicles before competition. The competition gives teams the chance todemonstrate and prove both their creativity and their engineering skills in comparison tothe teams from other universities across the country. Please note that some of the rules aresimilar to FSAE competition, but many of them are modified to suit Indian conditions.
Objectives of Vehicle Design:
For the purpose of this competition, the students need to assume that a manufacturing firmhas engaged them to design, fabricate and demonstrate a prototype car for evaluation of the same as a product ready for production. The intended sales market for such product isthe nonprofessional weekend autocross racer. Therefore, the car must have very highperformance parameters in terms of its acceleration, braking and handling qualities. Thecar must be low in initial cost, easy to maintain, and reliable. It should be able comfortablyaccommodate drivers whose stature varies from a 5th percentile female to a 95thpercentile male. Obviously
, the car’s
marketability is enhanced by the factors such asaesthetics, comfort and use of common parts. The manufacturing firm is planning toproduce four (4) cars per day for a limited production run and the prototype vehicle should

actually cost below INR1000000. The challenge for the team is to design & develop aprototype car that best meets these goals and intents, and simultaneously follow all thesafety rules and norms as specified in this Rule Book, considering the same as either therequirements of the manufacturing firm who have engaged them or the end customer (anautocross race car enthusiast). Each design will be compared and judged with othercompeting designs to determine the best overall car.
Good Engineering Practices:
Race car vehicles entered into SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 competition are expected to bedesigned and fabricated in accordance with good engineering practices and fabricated bythe particip
ating students in their own Institute’s workshop/Machine shop
. The mainmotive of this competition is out of the class learning experience.
Judging Categories & Awards:
The participating cars are judged in a series of static (stated
unstated: the judges will beobserving all the team members and may ask questions randomly to any team members forevaluating various parameters) and dynamic events including: technical inspection, cost,marketing presentation, engineering design, solo performance trials, and high performanceendurance test on the track. These events are scored to determine how well the carperforms. In each of the judging event, the manufacturing firm has specified performancelevels that are reflected in the scoring equations (the scoring equations will take care of thedifferential Cubic Capacity of the engine used, Rated Max Power @ rpm & Rated MaxTorque of the engine @ rpm and/or Power to weight ratio etc), in order to have a commonrace for all the cars of successful teams who hit the track on passing the stage wiseinspections and various steps of scrutiny. The decision of the judges will be final andbinding on all the teams. This being first ever such event being organized in India for thestudents of engineering colleges of India, all the team members are expected to cooperate.
The award categories will be announced in the month of April’ 2011.
