Bullet hawk Racing is the Formula SAE team of NSIT. We are a student run organisation of hard working inter-disciplinary students determined to apply our technical knowledge to face real-life challenges. The team derives its name from the word “Bullet hawk” which refers to the fastest animal on earth – Peregrine Falcon.
One of the biggest achievements of the society was the NSIT Moonbuggy built by members of the 2009 BHR team in the event started by America’s renowned space agency, NASA in an endeavour to make students all over the world address the engineering problems faced by the real moonbuggy team and to get valuable inputs from them which may prove to be useful in future space expeditions.
Team BHR designs and fabricates a single seater formula style car from scratch which conforms to the rule book of the competition. Since its inception in 2008, we have participated in 4 Supra SAE events so far and have been showing constant improvement over the years. Our most recent competition was the 2014 Supra SAE held at Chennai, where we secured the 21st position from over 160 teams.
The team will take part in FSAE competitions abroad and is keen to establish the presence of NSIT in the international student formula-racing scenario. The team wants to build a repute for Indian teams and make the nation proud. Bullet hawk racing is a diverse team of talented engineering students from different branches honing their skills in their specialized areas of interest, such as engine, chassis, suspension, electronic controls or body and its aerodynamics.
While the university does provide support in the form of fabrication facilities, Bullet hawk Racing has to raise sufficient capital resources to complete the project each year. Thus, sponsorship is an essential phase in meeting the team’s objective. Our past sponsors include Universal Metaltek, Rasandik, Deltronix, SolidWorks, Sail, 3M India, Ideas Design Solutions (P) Ltd., JK Tyres, Pheon Corp, Brakes India Limited and JBM Group.
