Pune: Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited will support young engineers from ARAI Academy Team 'Sultanz of Speed' by becoming their sponsors for the SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 to be held in July at Madras Motorsports Track, Chennai.

The team comprises 25 passionate engineers pursuing Master’s in Automotive Engineering at ARAI, Pune in collaboration with VIT University, Vellore. These students have been designing and fabricating their own formula type car since April 2010.

To motivate the young engineers, BPCL has also announced an award of Rs. 1 lakh to the Student Driver winning the event. BPCL is also a sponsor of the SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 event and they will provide fuel to all the 45 teams during the event.

Dr K C Vora Deputy Director & Head, ARAI Academy said that an Industry Institute partnership is the need of an hour and with regard to this, the association between ARAI & BPCL sets an example.

"Participating in SUPRA SAEINDIA helps students in out-of-classroom education and also sets as a platform to enter Formula one which is about to start in October 2011 in India," said Ajeet Babu P K, captain of the 'Sultanz of Speed' team.

The SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 competition is for Engineering College undergraduate and post graduate student members to conceive, design, fabricate and compete with small formula-style cars. To give teams the maximum design flexibility and the freedom to express their creativity and imaginations there are very few restrictions on the overall vehicle design. The specifications of the car frame and engine are restricted so that the knowledge, creativity and imagination of the students are challenged. The cars are built with a team effort over a period of about one year and are taken to the annual competition for judging and comparison with other vehicles from colleges and universities. The end result is a great experience for young engineers in a meaningful engineering project as well as the opportunity of working in a dedicated team effort.
