Formula Bharat is an engineering design competition in which students from colleges and universities all over the country, compete with a life-size Formula-style vehicle in areas of engineering design, overall cost, marketability and dynamic performance. The series replicates the global student Formula series hosted in around 11 countries per year.
The purpose of this competition is to encourage students to gain hands-on practical experience, while applying engineering theories studied in the classroom. In addition, students learn the art of management and teamwork, which are essential skills required in the ‘real-world’. These student teams are required to build a new vehicle from scratch year-after-year and seek sponsorship and donations by their own means to fund the project.
Formula Bharat 2019 (FB 2019) is being hosted and managed by Mobility Engineering Consortium Pvt. Ltd., an organization dedicated towards hosting mobility-related competitions for students. This will be the second consecutive event.
The Formula Bharat 2019 competition shall be taking place at the Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore from January 23 -27, 2019. The competition will focus on the combustion category and will be following an adaptation of the Formula Student 2018 Rules document.
