About GkdcGet To Know More.

Go Kart Design Challenge is a contest formulated to enhance the approach of students practicing Engineering and Diploma courses. This event is fundamentally all about designing and fabricating a Go Kart at very low expenditure. We expect the teams to manufacture Go Karts yielding optimum performance. The teams participating in this contest have to go through the In-House technical inspection and then final round. It will be mandatory for all the teams to clear the In-House technical inspection in order to advance to FR. Teams are required to manufacture their Go Karts without any direct/indirect involvement of any kind of Professional help.

In-House Technical Inspection

In-House TI is the preliminary technical inspection of the kart inside the college itself and it will be executed on video call. Separate guidelines for In-House TI will be made available in the account. Minimum of 80% work completion is required in order to attend the In-House TI.

Final Round (FR)- (Miscellaneous Tests)

All the qualified teams from the In-House TI are eligible to take part in the FR. All the participating teams are required to manufacture their respective Go Karts in their college campuses. Come event day, all the teams have to reach the specified venue. The vehicles manufactured by the teams would go through a number of tests namely, Technical Inspection, Brake test, Acceleration test, Skid Pad and so on. Based on the points achieved by each team in the following tests, the winner would be decided.
