TEAM KI RACING

KI Racing is a SAE BAJA team based in VIT University, Vellore. We are a bunch of creative engineering minds with the aim of taking the team to the topmost step of the podium. The team competes in the BAJA SAE Collegiate design series. Our job is to design and build a prototype of an All Terrain Vehicle (ATV).  About 30 undergraduate engineering students combine their skills and create a one-off design to be showcased in front of the whole world.

Building an ATV is definitely not a one-day wonder, it requires extensive stretches of commitment and a strong affirmation. The speculations we learn in school rouses us to apply them in building genuine race ATV Vehicle. We stretch out our days to 18 hours and unlimited night hours in the workshop to bring life to our vehicle. We construct our ATV starting with no outside help – appropriate from conceptualization, structure, producing lastly entering the testing stage which is a standout amongst the most vital parts of our arrangement.

The team aims to provide exposure to all its members and thus participates in two reputed events that take place in USA and India respectively.
