  • Tools & Commands of designing, features – weldments, sketch, evaluate, office products
Day 8 to 14: ATV Development & Fabrication

In this part participants will be fabricate from very scratch which all includes:

  • Roll cage profile generation
  • Development of roll cage fixtures
  • Roll cage welding and weld check confirmation
  • Roll cage suspension hard point adjustments
  • Development of Double Wish Bone Suspension
  • Development of E&T mounting frame
  • Attachment of sub-components holder
  • Engine mounting and it’s tuning
  • Coupling of engine & transmission
  • Brake bleeding and installation of braking, steering assembly
  • Final vehicle assembly with all sub-components
    (Steering, Braking, Suspension, E&T, Safety etc.)
  • Wheel assembly of front and rear drive vehicles, tire pressure calibration, cornering ability test
  • Graphic and Body works
Day 14 & 15: ATV Testing and Tuning

After complete fabrication, participants will do rigorous testing of the ATV and will optimize it’s performance

  • Acceleration test by participants
  • Brake test
  • Cornering ability test 
  • Vehicle endurance testing 
  • Quiz for certificate of appreciation & Internship Opportunities
  • Industrial project allotment
  • Orientation session on "Career in Automotive Sector"


  • 90% Practical - 10% Theory, learn and experience by doing things rather than cramming the concepts.
  • Learn from the best in the business including former Formula-1 Racing Marshalls.
  • Preparedness for race and design competitions organized by renowned automotive competitions such as BAJA, FORMULA-SAE, Go-Kart, Hybrid Vehicles, etc.
  • "Certificate of Participation” for all participants issued by “ELITE TECHNO GROUPS”, a team of Formula 1 Racing Marshalls, accredited by International organisation for Standardisation, United Kingdom (U.K).
  • Top 5 scorer will be rewarded with “Certificate of Appreciation” and will be provided Internship opportunitiesin top notch Automotive Companies.
