• SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) is a network of engineer, executives, educators and students from more than 110 countries who come together to share information and exchange ideas for advancing the engineering of mobility systems

• SAE India currently has 5 sections in India Government College of Engineering, Pune

• There are about 2,000 regular members and more than 27,500 student members in SAE India and the membership is still increasing

About TEAM Vishwaracers BAJA:

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) organizes the intercollegiate design competition known as SAE BAJA. A single seater off-road vehicle is designed and constructed by teams of students from universities across India. The two primary categories of BAJA competitions are M-BAJA(Main BAJA) and E-BAJA(Electric BAJA). The E-BAJA type is where Team Vishwaracers BAJA competes.

Creating off-road vehicles that can resist the harshest elements of challenging terrain is the aim of SAE BAJA. The vehicles used in SAE BAJA competition often resemble dune buggies in appearance. In addition to a single, four-hour endurance race, there are numerous dynamic events, typically four per event. The dynamic events include rock crawls, suspension and traction, maneuverability, sledge pull, acceleration, hill climb and specialty events.

Participating teams present static event reports including, presentations, and design evaluations. In order to ensure that the team’s ultimate standings are based on a combination of static and dynamic events rather than just the performance of their vehicles, the team’s vehicles are rated on their ergonomics, functionality, and producibility at this point. The engineering and design method that was used to construct each system of the team's vehicle is described in the various required reports and is supported by strong engineering concepts. Additionally, to determine which vehicles are the most commercially viable for production, a cost report that contains all the background data required to confirm the vehicle's true cost is used. These reports are provided weeks before each event, where presentations and design evaluations are performed live in front of SAE judges.

Team "Vishwaracers BAJA" began its voyage in 2017 and has since endeavoured to continually push itself to new limits. We constantly strive to produce the greatest automobile possible.
