SAEINDIA BAJA is an annual off-road event held at the NATRIP test facility in Pithampur, Indore. The event is the culmination of a year long project undertaken by undergraduate students of various colleges all over India, involving Designing, Analysing, Manufacturing and Testing of an offroad buggy.

Prominent companies such as Mahindra & Mahindra, Cummins, John Deere, Polaris etc are official sponsors of the event and engineers from their Research and development wing evaluate the teams on International Industrial Standards to recognise the best teams.

The event is broadly divided into two


Each team registered has to design and present a complete proposal of the vehicle including the complete 3-D model of the design and their overall estimate. The team’s presentation, technical, conceptual and design skills serve as the criterion for selection. Once the team qualifies, preparations for the main event are started.


The Main event is designed to test the endurance limit of the vehicle in every parameter. In static tests the judges evaluate the vehicle on built quality, workmanship, dimensions, rulebook adherence etc. In dynamic tests the teams are adjudged on engine and brake tests, acceleration, tilt and manoeuvrability

Finally the teams are challenged in a 4 hour long endurance race that tests the limits of both the driver and the vehicle. The ranking is based on the overall performance in the competition.


The task of putting together an automobile is of paramount altitude that cannot be scaled without the support of sponsors, we would like to thank our previous year sponsors for supporting us all the way.
