Study Notes

Formula Bharat 2025 Rules Booklet

  • Formula Bharat is a student design competition focusing on safety, good engineering practice, education, and creating opportunities for participating students.

Main Hoop Bracing

  • The main hoop must be supported by bracing tubes on each side, attached to the front or rear of the main hoop.
  • The main hoop and main hoop braces cannot lie on the same side of a vertical line coincident with the top of the main hoop.
  • Main hoop braces must be attached to the main hoop no lower than 160 mm below the top-most surface.
  • The included angle formed by the main hoop and the main hoop braces must be at least 30°.
  • The main hoop braces must be straight.
  • The lower ends of the main hoop braces must be supported back to the upper attachment point of the main hoop to the side impact structure and the lower attachment point of the main hoop to the side impact structure by a node-to-node triangulated structure or equivalent composite structure.

Front Hoop Bracing

  • The front hoop bracing attaches on each side of the front hoop as well as the structure forward of the driver's feet.

Front Hoop

  • The front hoop must be constructed of a continuous and closed section.
  • If the front hoop is made from more than one piece, it must be supported by node-to-node triangulation or an equivalent construction.
  • No part of the front hoop can be inclined more than 20° from vertical in the side view.
  • If the front hoop is a welded construction made from multiple aluminum profiles, the equivalent yield strength must be considered in the as-welded condition.
  • The front hoop requires six attachment points, two on each side connecting to the front bulkhead support structures and two connecting to the front hoop bracing.
  • Fully laminating the front hoop to the monocoque is acceptable, with the laminate overlapping by at least 25 mm on each side.
