The team was started back in 2014 as a place where students could practically apply what they learnt in classrooms and gain valuable knowledge about vehicle manufacturing and maintenance.
In the same year, the team built its first car, HRT01 and participated in the prestigious Formula Student Germany competition.
The team was able to build the lightest first year car from India and also cleared the technical inspection in its first attempt.
However due to the car engine noise being over the permissible limit, the team could not participate in the dynamic events.
Year 2015 - 16
In 2015, the same car was taken to the Formula Design Challenge, India.
The team got an overall ranking of 10th in the event.
The team placed 9th in the cost event rankings and came 1st in the real case scenario event.
However due to engine reliability issues, the team was unable to participate in the dynamic events. In 2015, Hyperion Racing also started work on its second car, HRT02.
Year 2016 - 17
In 2016, the team finished work on HRT02 making sure to show the FSAE community that the team is here to stay.
The car participated in Formula Student India where the team placed 18th in the overall ranking of the competition.
The team was unable to participate in the dynamic events due to a hub failure caused by microscopic hairline cracks in the interior of the aluminum part which went unnoticed in previous inspections.
The team was also supposed to participate in Formula Student Germany the same year. However the car was critically damaged due to an accident in testing just 2 weeks prior to the start of the competition. Due to the time constraint, the team decided against participating in the event.
Year 2017 - 18
In 2017, the team began its rebuilding phase. Due to damage caused to the previous car, the team was unable to extract any valuable data that could be used to build a new car.
Therefore the team decided to rebuild its existing car and gather as much data as it could by testing the car and it's components to the max.
Because of the financial condition of the team and the fact that a number of team members had either graduated the previous year or left the team, it was decided that the team would not participate in any competitions for at least a year, later taking a decision on what was to be done in the year 2018.
Year 2018 - 19
In the year 2018, the team began work on its third car, HRT03.
The entire team now consisted of members who had never built a car before let alone participated in any engineering competition of this magnitude.
This meant that the team essentially was back to square one and was almost as good as a first year team.
Due to this, a number of mistakes were made during the design and manufacturing stages.
Initially the team was looking to participate in Formula Student Bharat in 2019, but due to the time constraint, the team decided to participate in the ISIE Champion Of Champions event which was to be held on a later date.
Year 2019 - 20
2019 was supposed to the comeback year for Hyperion Racing and in many ways it was. The team participated in the Champion Of Champions event that was hosted by ISIE.
The team got an overall ranking of 5th, placing 2nd in the business plan event, 2nd in the Design event and winning the Team Spirit Award.
The team is currently perfecting HRT03 which will be participating in Formula Student Bharat in the year 2020.
Year 2020 - 2021
Fast forward to 2019 after overcoming a multitude of hurdles the team was reborn, with the help of seniors from previous 2 cars.
HRT 03 ( internally dubbed Cronus as a sibling of the Titan family, an homage to the name Hyperion ) was built from scratch.
The team participated in the Formula Bharat 2020. The got an overall ranking of 32nd, placing 18th rank in Engineering design event.
