1 International Go-Kart Championship 2013-14 Is a competition to bring out and enhance good engineering approach and practice for graduating and diploma students of engineering. The Championship is basically to design and fabricate a Go-Kart in extremely low budget followed by a Championship of the selected teams. an International organization which gives National and International exposure to the engineering students. The Championship gives teams the chance to demonstrate and prove both their creativity and their engineering skills in comparison to the teams from other Universities across the ASIA. The Go-Kart in the IGC 2013-14 will be made in budget that is Rs. International Go-Kart Championship 2013-14 is strongly inspired by the SAE events. 1. LPU SAEINDIA COLLEGIATE CLUB.
