Acceleration Test: The acceleration event evaluates the vehicle’s acceleration in a straight line on a flat track patch. The cars need to accelerate from a standing start over a distance of 50 m on a flat surface. This distance of 50 m must be covered within 10 second of the vehicle starting from the starting line. If a vehicle fails to cover this distance then the team will receive 0 points in the acceleration round and will be disqualified.
Hill Climb Test: This round is to judge the vehicle’s gradient climbing ability. The round involves vehicle climbing at slope steadily. Teams are required to complete track in 10 seconds.
Cross Pad Test: This round intent to checks the maneuverability of vehicle, measure the Vehicle’s cornering ability along with its suspension dynamics on a flat surface. Team vehicle will start from starting line and it should travel along the track overcoming all the obstacles in-between the track. Team is required to complete track in 30 seconds.
Solar Performance Test: This is to check the solar performance of used solar panels on the vehicle in static and dynamic conditions. Teams have to keep their batteries potential at nominal operating voltage. Then teams will be given a time period of 2 hour to charge their batteries using solar panels. Then teams will have to run their vehicle for 45 minutes. Both static and dynamic performance of the vehicle will be checked during the round.
Off Road: This round intent to check the vehicle’s off-road ability along with its suspension dynamics on an off-road surface. Team vehicle will start from starting line and it should travel along the track overcoming all the obstacles/barriers over the track likes Standard speed breaker, Mud and water trail, Obstacles course (potholes track), Hill climb elevation, etc.
Durability Test: Durability Test is designed to evaluate the overall performance of the car and to test the car’s durability and reliability of the car. The vehicle has to endure for 45 minutes continuously; the cars with prolong 45 minutes run without mechanical/electrical breakdown will be qualified for the rally.
