Bengaluru: “Dream big, plan well and make it a grand success.” This mantra has done wonders for Team Velocita Racing from Ramaiah Institute of Technology, which has built a Formula Race Car, making their dreams a reality.

Equipped with the engine of a Duke 390 motorbike, the single-seater car, which weighs 300 kg, has the ability to hit the top speed of 125 kmph, the team claims. The group of innovators from the second year engineering was drawn from Mechanical, Industrial Engineering & Management, Information Science, Telecommunication and Electrical disciplines. Racing buffs with the basic knowledge of cutting-edge technology were selected for a national event.

 

“Working with teammates of the same calibre and with similar aspirations is enriching. Our prime motive, which was to get through to the finals of Formula Bharat, which is scheduled to take place next month, has now become successful, motivating us further,” said Mohit B. Sai, a member of the team and a second-year mechanical engineering student.

A month prior to the event scheduled to be held at Chettipalayam in Tamil Nadu from January 23 to 27, the car was unveiled at the college last week. Many experts from the industry have lauded the innovation of students. With a cumulative budget of Rs 8 lakh, the 22-member team built the car with their tireless efforts over eight months. “We used to work on this dream project till midnight most days after college hours. The understanding that we had as a team, along with the mentorship of our senior Steven Mani Brills (a final-year student at RIT) and the able captainship of Pranay Ketineni, was an enriching experience. We look forward to build more cars and to participate in global events after this competition,” Mohit told Deccan Chronicle.  

The design, which includes suspension, braking, chassis design, and peripherals, has bagged the 21st position out of 120 teams selected for the finals of the competition.
