Team GENSONIC is the official Formula Student team of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, which was founded in 2013 by students of Mechanical Engineering with a vision to compete at the Formula SAE Competitions held annually by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). The team participated in 2014 Edition of SUPRA SAEINDIA held at Madras Motor Racing Track, Sri Perumbudur, Chennai from 17-20 July, 2014 (www.suprasaeindia.org). Currently the team is gearing up for 2015 Edition of SUPRA SAEINDIA.
What is SUPRA SAE-INDIA
This event provides a real world engineering challenge for the SAEINDIA Student members that reflects the steps involved in the entire process from design and engineering to production to marketing and endurance. It presents the Under Graduate & Post Graduate Engineering Students the task of designing, modelling and fabricating a formula type racing car. The concept behind SUPRA SAEINDIA 2014 is that a fictional manufacturing company has contacted a design team to develop a small Formula style race car. The prototype is to be evaluated for its potential as a racing car. The target marketing group for the race car is the nonprofessional weekend autocross racer. Each team designs and produces a prototype based on well laid down rules & regulations. The project fuels the exuberance of the youth by providing teams a platform to test their mettle, giving them a pragmatic exposure to real world challenges as faced in the industry. Students realize their talent through such an experience, making them proven candidates for the future as technocrats, entrepreneurs, designers, innovators and leaders. This helps the objective of bringing out student talent to serve the nation for the years to come, in fulfillment of the Automotive Mission Plan (AMP2016) a dream to make India an International Automotive Hub.
