Who are we?

        Established in 2016 by a group of like minded Automobile and Motorsports enthusiasts, Varaha Racing consists of a team of 25 Mechanical Engineering students from GITAM University, Visakhapatnam. 

What do we do? 

        Our goal is to participate and successfully compete in National and International level Vehicle Design Competitions such as SAE India, Student Enduro Baja, Elite racing, etc where we Conceptualize, Design, Validate and Fabricate vehicles like Efficycles, Go Karts, All Terrain Vehicles and Open Wheel Formula Vehicles.

What does History say?

        We have formerly participated in Elite Racing 2016 - a national level go kart design and development competition and in SAE India M - Baja 2017 - an international level all terrain vehicle design and development competition. 

What are we doing now?

        This year, Varaha Racing is participating in SAE India E - Baja 2018 - an international level design and development event of Eco - Friendly All Terrain Electric Vehicles. We have successfully cleared the Virtual round which was held in July 2018 and are currently fabricating the vehicle. We are targeting the top spot this season. To achieve this, we need funding along with the technical brilliance. Every single Rupee matters and we need your support to raise the bar and achieve our goals. 

What is E - Baja?

        Organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers, this competition requires students to make an all-terrain vehicle completely on their own. It thoroughly examines the practical knowledge of students through various aspects like innovation, design and build quality. It consists of Design Presentation, Dynamic Events like acceleration, suspension & traction to check each parameter in the vehicle. The competition concludes with an endurance race on a very harsh terrain that truly tests the vehicle.

        There are two rounds in the competition - the Virtual round and the Final round. In the virtual round, the teams are required to submit the conceptualized design in CAD model which will be followed by a presentation and submission of necessary documents such as Design Report, Cost Analysis, Business Plan, etc. The teams will be evaluated and only selected teams will participate in the final round. Once a team gets selected, it must start fabricating the proposed vehicle. In the final round, all the vehicles from all the different teams are inspected for safety and performance followed by a series of dynamic test and finally a race to determine the best vehicle.

What's next?

        We still have a long way to go! Our next target is an Open Wheel Formula Vehicle for SAE Supra.

Why Crowdfunding?

        A successful fund raising is a partial validation of the idea behind innovation. We spend most of our engineering life (sometimes 24 hours a day) in a workshop where we shape our dream of engineering excellence. Do believe in us, for our passion, dedication and hardwork.

Join us in our journey and thank you for all the support!
