I. 1 OVERVIEW AND COMPETITION

● INDIAN SUERKARTING SERIES-2 challenges teams of undergraduate and graduate students


to conceive, design, fabricate, develop and compete with small, formula style, vehicles. To
give teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom to express their creativity and
imaginations there are very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design. The challenge to
teams is to develop a vehicle that can successfully compete in all the events described in the
E-ISS- 2 2k19 Rulebook. The competition give teams the chance to demonstrate and prove
both their creativity and their engineering skills in comparison to teams from other universities
around the nation.

● Vehicle Design Objectives

For the purpose of E-ISS- 2 2k19 competition is to make the teams realize that they are
Working for a design firm that is designing, fabricating, testing and demonstrating a
Prototype vehicle for the non-professional, weekend, competition market. The vehicle should
have very high performance in terms of acceleration, braking and handling and be sufficiently
durable to successfully complete all the events described in the E-ISS- 2 2K19 Rulebook which
are going to take place at the dynamic round. Additional design factors to be considered
include: aesthetics, cost, ergonomics, maintainability, manufacturability, and reliability.
Once the vehicle has been completed and tested, your design firm will attempt to "sell" the
design to a "corporation" that is considering the production of a competition vehicle. The
challenge to the design team is to develop a prototype car that best meets the E-ISS- 2 2K19
vehicle design goals and which can be profitably marketed. Each design will be judged and
evaluated against other competing designs to determine
The best overall car.

● Good Engineering Practices

Vehicles entered into E-ISS- 2 2K19competition are expected to be designed and fabricated in
Accordance with good engineering practices.
● Judging Categories

The Karts are judged in a series of static and dynamic events including: technical inspection,
cost, presentation, and engineering design, solo performance trials, Rally Race and high
performance track endurance. The dynamic events are scored to determine how well the kart
performs. Each dynamic event has specified minimum acceptable performance levels that are
reflected in the scoring equations.

before a protest can be filed.

VIII.2. Cause for Protest A team may protest for dynamic round scores. Teams, team members or any
other members may not protest for rule interpretations or actions. Protest for any other issue other
than dynamic round scores will be considered unethical and illegal with regards to this rulebook and
