As rightly said, there is no alternative to hard work; the team Legion 2.0 from Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar College of Engineering and Research (DBACER) have a profound grip on the principle. BAJA SAE a platform engineering students turned out to be bliss for the Legions.
Run by Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE), BAJA SAE is an incredible opportunity for the engineering students to engage in extensive research and field work and to give out an unmatchable automobile that can survive the harshest elements of the rough terrain. Team from various Universities from across the world participate in this high adrenaline kicking competition where the sustainability and speed of their designed automobiles are challenged. The event is held in India, China, Brazil, South Africa and Korea. In India, the event is run by SAE.

Static event such as written report, presentation and design evaluation are provided by participating teams. Also, a cost report that provides all the background information necessary to verify the vehicle’s actual cost which is used to rate the most economically feasible for production.
The motto of the event, ‘Dream Dare and Drive’ was an apt phrase that gave the right adrenaline kick to these enthusiasts. Legions stood as the fifth best team in the competition.
