MEC students develop Oranguan, all terrain racing car

Mahindra Ecole Centrale(MEC) students have developed first completely indigenous All Terrain Racing Vehicle. The Oranguan, or the first off-road racing ATV, has been totally envisioned, designed, built and rigorously inspected by the students of MEC.

Created by the students of Team Gas Monkeys Racing, the competitive arm of MEC SAE club (Society of Automotive Engineers). The members of the MEC SAE club are required to be members of SAE India and formally join the MEC SAE club following a rigorous, formal induction process including a quiz on the SAE racing rule book, followed by an interview.

The team unveiled MECs first Orangutan and cleared rigorous technical inspections, taking part immediately in a grueling 4 hour endurance race – A significant achievement for a first year team! The team is looking forward to building their second Baja buggy for the 2020 season, intending to make it even lighter, stronger, tougher and faster.
