IIT Bombay student racing team wins big at Formula Student UK

The student racing team of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay is the first Indian team to win in the overall winners’ category at an international Formula Student competition. Formula Student is Europe’s most established educational engineering competition organized by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers– a global association of mechanical engineers. The team entered the competition with its latest car, E-12, which is the 12th version of the car made in conjunction with industry giants such as NRB Bearings and Mahle.

The team secured the overall winner position at the Formula Student United Kingdom.

The race was organized at the Silverstone circuit, England. However, with travel restrictions to the UK due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the student team from IIT Bombay participated in the event virtually for the second consecutive year.
