The BAJA SAE is an event for the undergraduate engineering students, organized globally by the Society of Automotive Engineers, headquartered in the USA. The BAJA SAE tasks the students to design, fabricate and validate a single seater four – wheeled off road vehicle to take part in series of events spread over a course of 3-4 days that test the vehicle for the sound engineering practices that have gone into it, the agility of the vehicle in terms of gradability, speed, acceleration and maneuverability characteristics and finally its ability to endure that back breaking durability test. The event has spanned across six countries – USA, Mexico, South Africa, Korea, Brazil and India.
SAE INDIA Organises BAJA every year in association with top notch Automobile companies.
It is staged in two round, Virtual BAJA and the Final event. Virtual round usually held in the month of August in Bengaluru after registrations in April-May and the Race event in February for those who successfully qualify virtuals, near an Industrial town, Pithampur, close to Indore in Madhya Pradesh.
