Each competition lasts a week, where teams hustle for fast lap times, “present and defend” engineering and business decisions before volunteer judges from industry, impress potential corporate sponsorships, and gain opportunities to network and interview for jobs with their dream companies like Bosch, Ford, Toyota, Denso, MathWorks, Spacex and many more!
In the Acceleration event, the car is evaluated for its accelerating abilities over a 75 meters distance.
The objective of the Autocross event is to test the dynamic ability of the car within a sprint. During this event, the car’s braking and cornering skills as well as handling qualities are tested and analyzed.
The purpose of the Skip Pad event is to measure how much lateral acceleration the car can output.
During a 22 kilometers long track, two drivers race until the midpoint in which they are required to switch off and begin again without refueling assistance. Here, a car’s enduring and lasting ability is evaluated for points.
Fuel consumption is analyzed during the endurance event to determine the correlation between speed and the efficient usage of fuel.
