The competition spanned over a total of 4 days. On the first day, the technical inspection was held. The vehicles were checked by inspectors to make sure that teams adhered to the rules and safety standards set by SAE.

The first dynamic day included the following events: Acceleration, Maneuverability, Suspension and Traction and on the final day, an endurance race was held.
Due to the joint efforts and hard work of Team VEERss Racing with a total of 22 members, IoKE IX outshined all its fellow opponents and emerged as a champion as it stood first in Designing round, CAE, GoGreen and bagged 3rd position in the cost category.
