Promoted by Mahindra and Mahindra, BAJA SAEINDIA is an national-level intercollegiate event which takes place every year. This year, the organisers received 414 entries, out of which 150 have been shortlisted for conventional Baja while 34 have been shortlisted for eBaja.
BAJA SAEINDIA gives engineering students an opportunity to showcase skills in designing 4 wheeled, single seater, all terrain automobiles. These vehicles are evaluated on the basis of Static, Dynamic and Durability events taking into consideration design, cost, presentation, build quality, innovation, acceleration, maneuverability, hill climb, suspension, traction and endurance.
Every year, the organizers adopt a new theme. This year’s theme is ‘Decade of Dream Dare & Drive’. This celebrates the 10th anniversary of Baja in India. “10 years of students Dreaming to do things by applying alternative thinking, Daring to turn their Dreams into reality by accepting no limits and Driving a positive change towards a brighter future.”
For the last few editions of BAJA series, the maximum number of entries from Maharashtra has been from the city of Pune. Colleges from Pune have won the maximum number of awards in the finale in the last few years. For BAJA 2017, 24 colleges from Pune are among the 53 entries from Maharashtra that have qualified for the finale.
