ABOUT THE PROJECT:
SUPRA (Super Racing) is a National Level Engineering Student Competition where Teams from Various Engineering Colleges Participate. In this competition Students Design and Fabricate a Formula Style Vehicle. The students not only design the vehicle but also built them as per the given set of rules (Rule Book) and design standards of SAE International. Making the students learn and realize their talent through such an experience.
