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.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Formula Bharat 2021 competition shall be taking place at on a virtual platform. The competition will focus on both the combustion and electric vehicle categories and will be following an adaptation of the Formula Student 2020 Rules document.
