Car made by Indian students wins first prize in U.S.
Chandigarh: A car designed and built by engineering students from a Punjab town has won first prize in the perseverance category at an international competition, held in the U.S.

The car won first prize at the 'International Car Fiesta Shell Eco Marathon' held at Fontana, California April 15-18.

Ankit Khurana, team leader of the project, said here Friday: "Around 32 teams from different countries participated in this competition. We were the only team from Asia. We named our car Stealth and christened ourselves Team Stealth."

"We classified our team into various departments; each individual was given an independent task and was solely responsible for that. After working all day and night we were able to manufacture the vehicle in 70 days," stated Khurana.

The winning team comprised of 12 students of mechanical, electronics and communication streams of the Chitkara Institute of Engineering and Technology in Rajpura town in Punjab, some 25 km from here.

Stealth is made of fibre glass with a self designed steering mechanism. Its net weight is 115 kg, and it is powered by a 125 cc (4 stroke) engine.

After winning the coveted award, Stealth returned to India a few days back.

3: Well done folks. Before anybody else goes for it PLEASE GO FOR REGISTEZRING THE PATENT WORLDWIDE. You know how we've lost credibility to so many innovations just because there was no patent registered.... and ONLY then discuss the inside story with anybody else. Best of luch guys and keep it up.

5: CONGRATULATIONS, IT'S A GOOD ATTEMPT TO WIN THE WORLD .WE INDIANS ARE HAVING MORE COMPETENCY IN ALL FIELDS .MAY BE WE SLOW BUT STEADY PROGRESS AND THOUGHTS PAYS IN LONGER RUN.WE ARE WELL KNOWN NOT ONLY IN TECHNOLOGY,POWER,STABILITY BUT IN OTHER FIELD LIKE HERBAL AND AYURVEDIC ,YOGA. IF INDIAN COMMUNITY LIKE YOU MAKE A GROUP AS YOU DID AND TRY FOR NEW INNOVATIONS ,WE WOULD BE NUMBER ONE IN THE WORLD.

I FEEL THAT YOUR GROUP SHOULD REGISTER THE INOVATION AND START FINDING POSSIBLITY OF COMMERCIAL PRODUCTIONS WHICH MGHT TAKE FEW YEARS BUT WILL BE A BOON FOR INDIA IN URBAN AND RURAL AREAS WHICH HAS TREMONDOUS POTENTIAL
