About the project

We are Team Ojas, VIT’s official Formula Student Electric team, started in 2011 by a group of undergraduate engineers to give spark to the fire that would light up the student motorsport field in the country. Our main goal is to make a mark in the field of sustainable motorsports in India. With the vision and the determination of sixty team members behind the car we have become one of the best formula student electric race car there is in the country. We actively participate in Formula Student Electric, an international competition organised by SAE and IMechE in countries like Italy, Germany, Austria and others throughout the globe. In the past we have participated in various events including FS-UK, FSAE-Italy and FS-Germany. Our most recent participation was in FS Italy in July 2018. Our Indian events in 2018 were Formula Bharat Electric Concept Challenge in January and Formula Green in February where we bagged 1st overall.



Why crowdfunding?

Team Ojas is an entirely student funded team. We never compromise on reliability and safety to build a high-performing Formula prototype electric race car. For the same reason, we purchase equipments from all over the world including tires from Germany, cells from China, a steering rack from USA and so on. We also manufacture body panels and aerodynamic package in-house, using carbon fibre. However, we are limited in terms of resources available to us. Therefore, we depend mostly on corporate and private firms, who provide their support in terms of product sponsorship and monetary funding. We, as a team, believe that we can reach our goals effectively and represent our country better with more funding. Electric Cars are the future and we want you to power this revolution and back a project that is a part of the growing alternate energy sector.

How will the money be used?

Rs. 80000 in Manufacturing of the car

Rs. 80000 in Aerodynamic package

Rs. 100000 in Motor and motor controller

Rs. 20000 in Research and Development

Rs. 20000 in Admin Fee

Rs. 50000 in Battery pack


Our Achievements!


We headed into 2018 with a lot of expectations and determination.
Our first event was Formula Bharat Electric Vehicle Concept Challenge in January. The results were sublime as we bagged the
1st place in Cost and Sustainability Event
3rd in Business Presentation
6th in Design Presentation event.

The next event we participated in was Formula Green in February and we bagged 1st overall.
The performances in events were
1st in Acceleration
1st in Design Event
2nd in Business Plan

The focus of the team was then on FS Italy in July and we participated in the 1E class and we had a commendable outing obtaining
5th in Cost Event
7th place in Business Presentation
13th place in Design event
12th overall

Overall, we had a successful season and the team is preparing for the next season in full swing.

Why should you believe in funding this project?

Funding our project enables the task of designing, manufacturing, marketing, logistics, extensive testing and racing by the team members. Motorsports being an upcoming field in India, we witness a lack of industrial resources and cutting-edge technology. Your support shall help us pass these hurdles smoothly and achieve our goal to continue being the best. As a team we face challenges from many sides. The challenges of building a fully functional performance car, competing against some very experienced teams, and passing on the spirit of the team to the new recruits are quite herculean. Raising the bar each season, we push ourselves to make a better car every year. This is why we have a team working day and night, dedicated towards building a better race car. We need this funding to help achieve our full potential.

How will we show the results achieved from funding?

It is our responsibility to make ensure that every backer is informed about the expenditure of their money. We will make it a point to inform all our backers regarding the progress of the team through regular updates. We are a team with 130 alumni and counting, with an established legacy of 7 years and a proven track record. We assure you that your money will be spent where it’s absolutely necessary. Any donor of ours can reach us directly through email, Facebook or Instagram and we will maintain the team’s approachability and transparency. We are students of a reputed institution and being the official Formula Student Electric Team of VIT Vellore, we promise to deliver.

What is Formula Student and Formula Bharat?

Formula Student program is an engineering design competition for undergraduate and graduate students organised by SAE in over 11 countries every year. The competition provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a challenging competition. The engineering design goal for teams is to develop and construct a single-seat race car for the non-professional weekend autocross racer, with the best overall package of design, construction, performance and cost.
Formula Bharat is also a design competition hosted and managed by Mobility Engineering Consortium Pvt. Ltd., an organization dedicated towards hosting mobility-related competitions for students.
