Humble beginnings, low budgets and scrap metal are constituents that you’ll find most engineering students have in common when it comes to creating their very own race cars from the ground up. While many have tried and failed at making one suitable even for a two day inter-college competition, a bunch of students from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have been active in the field for quite some time now and come 2013 will go on to represent India at the Italian edition of the SAE competition.
