  • As EV teams struggled with constant changes put forth by the ongoing pandemic and the switch to the Virtual Event format in late August, no late submission penalties were assigned to FMEA, ESF and SES. The document reviewers rather saw this as an opportunity for teams to gather feedback in their submitted documents, push for higher review acceptance rates and to take forward their learnings into the 2022 season.
  • No late submissions were recorded with the IAD submissions.
  • The IAD submissions saw a 95% review acceptance rate amongst participating EV teams at Formula Bharat.
  • The above exceptions do not apply to teams participating in the Combustion category.
