Team Haya, the formula racing team of P.E.S. Institute of Technology has won the 'SKID PAD' event in SUPRASAE 2011, held at Madras Motor Sports club Chennai beating 44 other college teams from all over India.
The SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 is a competition which presents Under Graduate & Post Graduate Engineering students the task of designing, modelling and fabricating a formula type racing car which is evaluated on various parameters. The concept behind SUPRA SAEINDIA 2011 is that a fictional manufacturing company has contacted a design team to develop a small Formula style race car. The prototype is to be evaluated for its potential as a racing car.
Speaking about the win, CEO of PES Institutions Prof. D. Jawahar said "We are extremely happy about the achievement of our students. The win has re-enforced the aim of PES Institutions in moulding students into individuals who can take up any type of challenge in the competitive world. "
As part of the competition the teams have to participate in several individual events such as Static Events which include Design Evaluation, Cost Report, Marketing Presentation and Dynamic Events which include Technical Inspection, Skid Pad Test, Acceleration Test, Endurance etc.
The objective of the SKID-PAD event is to measure the car's cornering ability on a flat surface while making a constant-radius turn. The driving path is a pair of concentric circles, the inner radius of 15.25m and outer circle of 21.25m in diameter. The car enters tangentially to the circles and does two laps in the clockwise direction and two laps in the anti clockwise direction. The team which can do this task in the shortest amount of time wins this event.
Team Haya of PESIT won this difficult event from among 45 participating teams from across country. The team was presented with a Cash Award of Rs. 50.000/- for winning the event. The team was mentored by Faculty Advisors, Prof. S.S. Patil and Prof. V. Krishna of the Mechanical Engineering Department.

Team Haya: Formed in 2008, Team Haya has participated in FSAE (Formula Society of Automotive Engineers) events across the globe such as FSAE 2008 at Melbourne FSAE 2010 at Michigan and presently the SUPRASAEINDIA 2011.The team designed and fabricated to FSAE specifications individual cars for each of the competitions. The car that participated in SUPRASAEINDIA 2011 - Chennai is the third car out of the Haya portals.
