As the mercury in the capital continued to drop, the temperatures at Buddh International Circuit soared on Tuesday, the last day of the JK Tyre Baja Student India 2016. The All-terrain-Vehicle design challenge, which started on January 21, 2016, witnessed stiff competition among more than 40 participating teams. During the last six days, the venue was home to over 4000 engineering students including participants of JK Tyre Formula Student India 2016, taking place on the same venue, simultaneously.


The overall champions of the JK Tyre Baja Student India 2016 were Forza Racing - Sinhgad Academy of Engineering, Pune. The Road Runners – Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore and Team Piranha Racing - Maharashtra Institute of Technology, Pune, stood at second and third positions respectively. The winners are awarded the JK Tyre BSI 2016 trophy by Raghupati Singhania, Chairman & Managing Director, JK Tyre & Industries Limited.


Though Team Forza Racing struggled in previous events, their excellent performance in the Endurance race, that carries maximum weightage, took them way up the scoring charts. In static events, they were second in business event and weight pulling events. Team The Road Runners from VIT, Vellore came third in acceleration, manoeuvrability and weight pulling events. Ending up at third, Team Piranha Racing of MIT, Pune also did well in the endurance race where they ended up at third position and second in the cost event.


“Last year, BSI 2015 was attended by over 800 students but this time it grew to more 1300 students. We are happy to associate with a company with as longstanding credentials in motorsports as JK Tyre,” said Soumya Kanti Bose, convener, JK Tyre Baja Student India 2016.
