There are people who follow the path that everyone takes and then there are the ones who make their own. In this case, the latter is true, quite literally. Meet Team Black Mamba from NIT Rourkela, ranked 4th National Champion in 2015, who are all set to stomp the ground in this year’s BAJA SAE India. If you guys are new to BAJA SAE, then we have to tell you it’s the badass counterpart of THE DAKAR RALLY for engg. students. If you aren’t impressed enough by what this team has done then here’s a lowdown of all the things you should know about this talented MADE IN ROURKELA TEAM.
The Indian edition of the series, the BAJA SAE India which began in 2007, tasks the students to conceptualise design, build, test and validate a single-seater, four-wheeled All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) to take part in a series of events spread over a course of three days. The ultimate test of man and machine returns to Bangalore in June of this year with the NITR team set to be front and centre of the action once again. The 2017 BAJA SAE will break new ground as Team Black Mamba’s new, improved and more kickass All Terrain Vehicle will turn up the heat in the iconic event. As well as fresh challenges to be faced, there’s plenty of other universities participating that have now become a legendary part of the BAJA SAE experience.
Winners or not, this rourkelia team has already made us proud and hopefully with their bigger & meaner machine this time, they may win this iconic event and kick some serious ass out there.
