Formula One entered the Indian scene in the year 2011, and the success of the F1 Grand Prix has certainly proven to be a stepping stone to a great future. This grand success has surely led to the evolution of the Formula Racing in India. The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) is the world governing council of automotive field which organizes various engineering competitions across the globe for students to design a prototype that is to be evaluated for its potential as a racing car. In September of 2009, a group of engineering students from SRM University collectively formed an engineering team called 'Camber Racing' on campus to compete in FSAE (Formula Student) events worldwide. Though, they recognize themselves as a racing outfit, they compete with other teams on an engineering level instead of determining who has achieved faster lap times. Faster lap times are a factor at Formula One level of motorsports, a level they intend to reach someday. To their utter delight, Camber Racing won the most coveted 'Best Marketing Presentation Award' in the very first edition of SUPRA SAE. For the next edition, the team underwent rigorous training, and their car, 'The Beast' won the overall 1st prize out of 65 teams and along with other awards such as 2nd in Endurance event, 2nd in Autocross event and 2nd in Skid-pad event. Camber Racing has been to the world's 3rd toughest and highest altitude rally, the Raid De Himalayas in October 2010 and completed it. In a very short time, Camber Racing has gone on to become the most popular SUPRA SAE team in the country. Camber Racing, in its attempts to promote its sponsors, conducted a Public Relations Event in collaboration with Aaruush (the techno management fest of SRM University) 2011-2012 by displaying the LJM 01 and conducting a Demo Run of the car. Aaruush'11 and '12 witnessed Camber Racing as the ultimate showstopper, and established itself a great fan following! As part of its future endeavours, Camber Racing has associated itself as the education partners with South India's biggest Auto Expo held in Chennai. Camber Racing is expected to enter the FSAE international forum next year with the SAE 2014 being held in Germany and intends to be the first ever Indian team to clear all ten rounds in its debut season
