The Team Fateh Formula Racing Team represents Thapar University’s entry into the Formula SAE collegiate design series, a competition sanctioned by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Team Fateh gets its name from the word Fateh which means “Victory”. Every year, we design, develop, build and races an open-wheel, open-cockpit race vehicle at Silverstone, UK.
Formed in 2008 with the aim of being the best collegiate team in India, we now approach our 9th outing with the aim of being in the top 20, internationally. We’ve had our share of ups and downs, but nothing holds us back. Our team of dedicated young engineers is determined to achieve engineering excellence and our aim of being not only the best in India, but also ranking among the best in the world.
We pride ourselves on being one of the few Indian teams that have participated in Formula Student competitions in the UK, Germany as well as the Czech Republic. Companies involved with Formula Student through sponsorship get face to face access to these highly skilled young engineers, who could be viewed both as potential recruits and as potential future customers. Formula Student provides opportunities in brand awareness and sales, so whether you are an OEM, Tier 1 supplier, or SME, there are real business benefits to be gained! With our car spending so much time at various competitions, our sponsors have gained tremendous national and international exposure. Along with the team apparel and the car, our sponsors feature prominently on various promotional materials distributed by the team both in the form of banners, flexes and on social media. This means the direct exposure of your brand to over 5000 students on campus every time the car rolls out for a promotional or test run, and straight into the newsfeeds of our 8000 followers.
