About the project

We are called Pravega and ours is a team of 50 skilled, ambitious and self-motivated engineers. We are designing and manufacturing a formula prototype race car and have been the Formula Bharat Season '17 Champions. Pravega is VIT University's official Formula SAE combustion team. Apart from being national champs, we also represent India in several international racing events such as FS Germany and FS Italy.


Spending more time in the workshop than in the classroom, for us work is no different than play because we love what we do! And we believe there is no better way to study engineering than to study a race car. No wonder we end up spending more than 40 hours doing just that in our workshop!


Being a Formula Student

Morning is when the day starts for normal people, but for us, it starts when the sun sets and the moon goes up. For us, textbooks and tools go hand-in-hand. The theories we learned in college inspired us to apply them in building real race car prototypes. The car is built from scratch – right from conceptualisation, design, manufacturing and the assembly of the car, is done by a group of undergraduate students. After countless nights spent in the workshop, little by little the car comes to life.

We annually participate in National and International competitions such as Formula Bharat and Formula Student Germany, where teams from all around the globe showcase and compete with their racecars.


Behind this car is a team of enthusiasts filled with passion and an obsession for speed

Journey so far 
Since the inception of Pravega Racing in 2008 with 15 members, we have seen tremendous growth, from being a novice team in 2008 to become the National Champions. In the coming years we plan to establish a global image and be among the top 10 teams in the world which will only be possible with your support!



National Champions

What is Formula Bharat and Formula Student?
Formula Bharat is an engineering design competition in which students from colleges and universities all over the country compete with a life-size Formula-style vehicle in areas of engineering design, overall cost, marketability and dynamic performance. The series replicates the global student Formula series hosted in around 11 countries every year.



Whereas, Formula Student is an international design competition of skills, speed and spirit. An international engineering competition held by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).

At FS Germany 2016

Each team, representing their respective country, designs, manufactures, validates and races a Formula 1 prototype. The entire competition is conceptualized in such a way, so as to not only test an engineer's technical know how, but also to challenge specific skillsets in areas such as project management, cost efficiency and business ideologies.

Why crowdfunding?

We are the proud owners of the fastest accelerating combustion car manufactured in India. We have won accolades in various National and International competitions in the past and we hope to increase our presence globally by designing and manufacturing the fastest car in the world but the hard fact is, being students, the financial crunch always obstructs our growth. Assistance provided by you will help in overall growth of the team towards building the fastest racecar and will also make you a major part of this project.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 100000 in Procurement of Carbon Fibre for car components

Rs. 75000 in High performance products

Rs. 50000 in Materials for manufacturing

Rs. 25000 in Admin Cost


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

With all the grit and determination, our team is working through sleepless nights towards making our dream come true. But the major limitations that we face, are in terms of availability of high-end resources and new-age technology that can help us represent India better at International Championships. Your contribution can push us towards our goal by removing these obstacles.

What happens if we don’t raise the money?

This campaign is an all-or-nothing campaign. Hence, Wishberry will return your money if we can not reach our target amount. However, our dreams of becoming the best in the world and taking India to new heights in car racing will come crashing down. Please come forward and contribute as much as you can to make our dream come true!

I remember, probably in the 2012-13 season, we ran a Sponsor-a-Part campaign to raise funds from alums. At that time, I felt that, in the long run, our Alumni will have immense potential to support Pravega technically and financially. I think that time has come now. I speak for almost all alums when i say that we would like to stay connected. So please keep us involved and we will be happy to contribute in any small way we can.

You might not know me. I was the vehicle Dynamics Head and cost and manufacturing head for FSAE Italy 2013 for this beautiful team. Pravega has been the turning point of my life and I will always cherish every moment of it. Have loads of fun and stay Pravegun. P.s: Please bring me the cost event trophy.
