SUPRA SAEINDIA 2016 and 2017
The initiative to enter the SUPRA SAEINDIA 2016 was taken up by the Mechanical Engineering Department of Ambalika Institute. Head of Department Mr. Anup K. Singh and Mr. Aditya Veer Gautam guided a group of enthusiastic student who named the group “Technoambalikans” and the Department was instrumental in getting the project Formula Car completed in record time to participate at the Buddha International Circuit, Greater Noida.
At AMBALIKA, the Centre of Excellence (CoE), a unique technical training establishment, provided machinery, tools and hands-on experience in the varied domain expertise ranging from high-end Industrial robotics to rudimentary welding and sheet metal works which greatly helped in achieving the desired goals in technology while making the F1 formula car.
Technoambalikans have proven themselves and will surely make a mark in world of motorsports and automotive engineering.
It is a pleasure to introduce this great team lead by:
HOD Mr. Anup Singh, Aditya Veer Gautam (Faculty and Project Advisor), Akash Shukla (Captain), Gaurav Singh (Vice-Captain), Vishnu Kumar Sharma, Tabish Ali, Nitesh Kumar Singh, Utkarsh Kumar Sharma, Abhishek Kumar, Prashant Srivastava, Vikas Singh, Narsingh Chauhan, Aakash Sharma, Anurag Vishwakarma, Aman Shukla, Yogendra Verma, Ashutosh Pandey, Amit Vishwakarma, Mohit Singh Chauhan, Ravi Chaudhary, Manish Verma, Shobhit Tyagi, Yashpal Singh, Apoorva Chauhan.
Here is sharing some glimpse of processes and experiences:
-Designing: At the start, we designed a prototype of the car using Solidworks. It took a lot of time but the knowledge that we gathered in the process helped us a lot in understanding the concept of mobility engineering. Static analysis and Dynamic analysis helped us generate reports and thus the valid modifications were made accordingly.
-Fabrication: We prepared a BOM and the college provided the initial capital to start the fabrication of the project. In the meantime, we had another group of students working towards sponsorships from industry to bridge the financial gap. Cost efficiency was our major challenge, so we did not shy from using old and re-conditioned parts. This greatly reduced our project cost by as much as 65%. FEA analysis is done on roll cage to obtain high strength and rigidity keeping low mass. We ourselves manufactured parts such as bell crank and upright to keep the overall weight of the car to bare minimum, without compromising on safety. FEA result included roll over, Front impact, side Impact, Front impact deformation.
Our aim was to make a STUDENT FORMULA ONE CAR in compliance to the SUPRA SAE standards. The car that we have designed is stable on the road and safe for the driver. It’s easy handling makes it super-efficient and hence the fun and joy of riding this vehicle multiplies many folds. We are confident that our F1 car will be able to perform well and attract attention of F1 enthusiasts.
“SUPRA SAE has given me a platform to display my talent in front of the world. It has given me a chance to utilize and improve my convincing skills in arranging for sponsorships. It also enhanced my personality and attitude. I am very thankful to my college for providing me this opportunity”
Akash Shukla, Civil 3rd Year (Team Captain)
“My experience at Buddha International Circuit was very good. This event provided us a stage to represent ourselves on national level and develop our skills. There was so much to learn from the technical inspector and other teams”
Gaurav Singh, ME 3rd year (Vice-captain, Team)
“The best part is the national exposure. Our vehicle getting inspected by people with immense knowledge in Automobile Engineering gave us the chance to truly learn the application level of engineering fundamentals”
Utkarsh Kumar Sharma, EC 3rd year (Electrical and Electronics Head of Team)
“I am very glad to be a part of this event. I have gained so much practical knowledge from this event in just few days. Observing F1-cars of various other teams also gave us new ideas for our future car and interacting with different teams also lead to productive exchange of great ideas”
Aman Shukla, ME 3rd Year (Workshop Head of Team)
“With this event I realized that if we give enough input and don’t give up, anything is possible. I am very glad and thankful that I was given the responsibility of designing the car. Though we had less time in hand but with our collective effort we were able to fabricate the car in record time. The event was an eye opener for us and we came to realize the mistakes that we made. But with the kind of response we got from the technical inspector we are now confident that we will be able to compete in SUPRA SAE 2017 with the same level as those of premier institutes of India”
Vishnu Kumar Sharma, ME 3rd Year (Designer and Technical Head of Team)
“It was my best experience as I like purchasing and marketing. I was actively involved in the carrying out task related to purchasing. We felt very proud when we went to Noida to compete on an international track.”
Manish Verma, ME 3rd Year (Purchasing and Marketing Head of Team)
“My SUPRA SAE experience was very good as it gave me a lot of knowledge and technical experience. It taught me on professionalism and hard work. It gave me chance to work on many tools and machines which I used to just look at before”
Mohit Singh Chauhan, ME 3rd year (Tools and Equipment Head of Team)
“I have been working in my automobile workshop at home since my childhood but this was the first time where instead of maintenance work, we actually fabricated the entire car from scratch. This is the very first time that I adequately used my skills in manufacturing a car. Many of my small ideas (innovation) were greatly appreciated.”

Stall Mart Event [Gaming Zone]
Introduction: – The SAE collegiate club organized event including few games in the “tech fest 2k16” in our college. There were games like: –
- Blow balloons
- Clink a coin
- Straw band
- Dart game
- Brake the glass
The basic purpose was to arrange money for the projects in future that will be held under SAE collegiate club.it was officially controlled by our faculty advisor “Aditya sir”. He proceeded the idea of stall with permissions of officials. Many members of the club helped in managing the stalls & allow people to enjoy the games Manish Verma, Gaurav Singh, Apoorv Chauhan, Anurag Vishwakarma, Mohit singh Chauhan, Shobhit Tyagi, Abhishek Kumar, Shubhi Palliwal, Indrani Pandey, Pooja Negi, Priyanka Shukla etc. Some members are not in SAE club but they members helped us in making the event successful.
The description of the events are as follows;
This task was for strong lungs. In this task, it was asked to blow 4 balloons in 1 minute. The person who completed the challenge got a chance pick 1 chit from lucky draw & got gifts according to that like friendship band, key rings, chips, chocolate etc. the cost for playing the game was 10 Rupee. The total investment for this game was 40 Rupees & luckily got profit of 100 Rupees. We get several winners from this game & it attracted many people.
This task was all about physics. It just needed a simple trick to win but people took it as luck game. In this task there was a bucket full of water & a ring was kept at center of bucket. All you had to do is to put a coin in ring from top everyone got 2 chances to this. If any coin reaches inside the ring the person wins. The cost for playing this game too was 10 Rupee & same process for winner to get gifts. The investment in this game was nothing but luckily we get enough profit of about 200 Rupees. People found it really interesting.
This game was the most interesting one & many people tried this too. This game was looking simple but unfortunately few people were successful only. In this game it was asked to use a straw to put a rubber band in vertical rod kept just beside it, by holding straw in mouth. The limit was 5 straws in a minute. It draws attention of many people around & we got enough in our pocket. The person who completed the challenge got a chance pick 1 chit from lucky draw & got gifts according to that like friendship band, key rings, chips, chocolate etc. The cost for playing the game was 10 Rupees. It needed more investment than other game but luckily we were in profit. The total investment for this game was 60 Rupees & luckily got profit of 300 Rupees. We got several winners from this game & it attracted many
This game was also very good game but unfortunately we got less people interested in this, but still many tried. In this game every player got 5 chances to hit dart board & score 102 to win. The target could be said for lucky on. This game needed concentration to hit correctly. The person who completed the challenge got a chance pick 1 chit from lucky draw & got gifts according to that like friendship band, key rings, chips, chocolate etc. the cost for playing the game was 10 Rupees. There was no investment in this game because we got dart from our friend and profit was 50 Rupees. So whatever we got was counted as profit. The gifts were given according to previous procedure that was winner got chance to pick gifts through lucky draw.
Brake the glass
This game looked very simple but it also needed skills & concentration in throwing ball. Being attached with sports this game attracted most visitors. It was most played & liked game in event. All you need to do is make all steel glass fell down with 3 shots of ball from certain limit. everyone was showing much interest in this. The person who completed the challenge got a chance pick 1 chit from lucky draw & got gifts according to that like friendship band, key rings, chips, chocolate etc. the cost for playing the game was 10 Rupees. The total investment for this game was nil & luckily got maximum profit 350 Rupees. We got less number of winners from this game & it attracted many people.so we got maximum profit from this game. Due to this much interest in this we are planning it on bigger scale next time.
At last I would like to say that the event was really encouraging for us. it was the first event that we organized under SAE collegiate club. After seeing the success of the event we are hoping for more such events in future on larger scale. There were many hands making the event successful. We got a good profit by investing less in each. I would like to thank our faculty advisor “Aditya sir” for encouraging us to organize it well.
The event was very promoting for us; it gave us lots of beautiful memories as well as plans to organize such events in future. Hope we will arrange many more exciting events & games with the help of members of our SAE collegiate club.
