KNOx

Team KNOx IIT Roorkee is the official off-road racing team of IITR. Team KNOx is a group of enthusiasts who design and fabricate an off-road vehicle and participate in National level competitions like BAJA SAE India and BAJA Students India.

Team KNOx provides a big platform to all the creative people who starve to work out of the box.

About The Competition (BAJA SAE) :

Baja SAE is an intercollegiate design competition run by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). Teams of students from universities all over the world design and build small off-road cars.

The goal in Baja SAE racing is to design, build and race off-road vehicles that can withstand the harshest elements of rough terrain.

  • Organized annually since 2007 by SAE India at NATRIP, Pithampur (Near Indore, M.P.)
  • The event witnesses a participation of over 400 teams from various engineering colleges including many of the IITs, NITs all across India.

Various Vehicle Evaluation events @ BAJA SAE

  • Static Events: Comprise of Design Evaluation, Cost Evaluation and Sales Presentation.
  • Dynamic Events: Comprise of various tests including Braking, Figure of 8  test, Acceleration, Maneuverability, Hill Climb, Suspension traction and Endurance race.
