    The BAJA SAE student challenge is a feted student competition that presents the

    undergraduate engineering students with a challenging task of designing, fabricating

    and validating an all terrain vehicle. The history of the event dates back to mid 70s

    when it originated in USA and since then it is conducted annually at several locations

    across the globe, including USA, Mexico, Canada, India, South Africa, Brazil, and

    South Korea, witnessing participation from prominent colleges around the world.

    The BAJA SAE INDIA is successfully being held since 2007 at the NATRAX

    (National Test Track) facility of NATRiP (National Automotive Testing & R&D

    Infrastructure Project) situated at Pithampur, Indore in Madhya Pradesh.

    MIT SAE BAJA Team Piranha Racing comprises of 25 dedicated auto-

    enthusiasts students from Mechanical and Mechanical Sandwich working under the

    guidance of Prof. C.D. Koshti and Prof. S.M. Bondar. They design, fabricate and

    validate a single-seater four-wheeled off-road vehicle to take part in series of events

    that test the vehicle for the sound engineering practices that have gone into it, the

    agility of the vehicle in terms of gradeability, speed, acceleration and mobility

    characteristics and finally its ability to endure a back-breaking durability test. MIT
