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.
