This season has been a major milestone for us in many regards. From manufacturing our ATV from scratch in a very limited time, to making it to the pedestal in as many as 3 different categories (Sales Presentation Event , Raftaar Event and Acceleration Event) and making it to 8 top 10s in all, we definitely came a long way. The sound of our ATV racing through the uneven tracks of Pithampur still reverberates in our hearts and motivates us to work even hard and prepare ourselves better for the upcoming season of BAJA SAE India.
