WHAT IS FORMULA STUDENT ?
‘Formula Student’ competitions are student engineering competitions held each year in countries across the world. Student teams from around the world design, build, test and race a formula style race car. The cars are judged on various criteria, and evaluation is done on the team’s performance in the static and dynamic events. You may have the fastest car on the grid, but it does not mean anything if it can’t take the brunt of the man trying to pulverize the brake pedal during technical inspection!
In India, the Formula Student competition is known as ‘Formula Bharat’ and is held each year in the Kari Motor Speedway racetrack in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. More than 50 Indian teams participate each year in the competition to test the mettle of their engineering creation and rack up ideas in the static events. At the end of the day, the teams leave with a lot of new things learned and experience gained, to be back at taking a shot at the podium next year and maybe, get some payback for last time!
