Who are We?
IIT Roorkee Motorsports is the official Formula Student Electric team of
IIT Roorkee which participates in the world’s
largest Inter-Collegiate Engineering competition
conducted by the IMechE and
SAE (Formula Student
and FSAE, respectively) by designing,
fabricating an open-wheel formula-style electric racecar. Our passion is
not for cars alone - it is fuelled by our desire to use engineering and
technology to change the mobility sector in India.
With a burning passion for Engineering Design, a handful of racing
enthusiasts came together and started the team’s journey in
2010. The team made its debut in 2011
by participating in FSAE Australasia held in Melbourne, Australia, with
an internal combustion engine car.
Since then, the team has participated in Formula Student competitions
every alternate year - Formula Student UK - 2013 with a
Hybrid Car, FSAE Australasia in 2015
with our first fully Electric car, and
Formula Green in 2017.
Continuing the legacy, the team participated in Formula Green 2020 at
Coimbatore, and Formula Bharat 2020, which was conducted remotely due to
Led by three faculty advisors, the team has now evolved into a group of
more than 50 members comprising not only of
Electrical divisions but also a
Media body that works tirelessly to
present our work to the world, and a
Marketing division, responsible for
bringing in sponsors - the financial backbone of the team.
About Formula Student
Formula Student is a student design competition organized by the
Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
. It is the
world’s largest student engineering design competition
which enables students with the unique opportunity to develop their
skills in technical designing, manufacturing, research work, team
management, communication, and business operations such as budgeting and
market research in a real-world environment.
In a Formula Student competition, a team and their car are evaluated
through Static and Dynamic events -
The Static events consist of
Business presentations that enable
participants to showcase their vehicle design and testing, budget
allocation, and marketing strategy know-how.
The Dynamic events consist of
Endurance tests. These provide the
judges an opportunity to put the teams’ cars to the ultimate test
and make them compete with each other in a 22 km track race.
