Recently team “ACCELERONS” participated in “Indian super carting Series 2016” organized by “Mahankal institute of Technology”, Ujjain, M.P. Accelerons is a group of 15 students from SE.TE, BE along with faculty Advisor Prof. A.V. Karande. Event was scheduled on 8th -10th July 2016 at MIT,Ujjain. Based on our performance at International go-kart championship, organized by LPU, Punjab where we grabbed pole position in Endurance, we were directly allowed for Dynamic Round. Technical inspection was performed to check whether vehicle meets defined rules and safety measures for Driver. Team Received special compliment from FMSCI judges regarding our safety measures in vehicle. We successfully cleared Technical inspection in first attempt. Dynamic round consists of acceleration Test, Brake test and figure of eight etc. In acceleration test we took 10 sec to cover 60 m distance but based on our engine which is only 3.5 HP, we were considered as best among all the teams and hence we got top rank in that category. Brake test was followed by acceleration test where our vehicle took 8 m stopping distance. Lastly vehicle completed figure of Eight in 37 seconds. In Dynamic round, earlier it was scheduled to complete 3 laps with 2 liter fuel but due to continuous rain there was change in the rule. Now the vehicle has to run for one lap and winner for this was declared based on minimum time. Our vehicle completed track in one minute 40 second.
Our team won “Best Acceleration Award” and also we are ranked All India 8th among 70 teams. We heartily thankful to Dr. S. G. Dambhhare sir,HOD(Mechanical Engg.) for allowing us to participation in event and extending workshop facilities for 24×7 for manufacturing and testing of vehicle. Also we thank Dr. A.N.
