DUT Racing from Delft University, The Netherlands, won the electric category with their electricity-driven car at the Formula Student Germany competition, which took place at Hockenheim race circuit on 30 July – 4 August 2013.
Marius Knol, Team Manager of DUT Racing says, “As a team we are known for our lightweight and integrated design. This year we managed to build a winged, four-wheel drive, electric racecar weighing only 175 kg, and with that it is one of the lightest cars of the competition. This could only be achieved with TeXtremeSpread Tow carbon fibre fabrics, which make up the majority of the primary structure of the car, as well as the majority of the aerodynamic package on our car. The TeXtreme fibres enabled us to reduce the mass of our composite parts with at least 10%. The use of TeXtreme has definitely contributed to the overall win at FSG and we are very grateful for this support.”
Henrik Blycker, CEO of Oxeon, says, “Our continuous support to these teams and the students that are working hard to make these cars is a given action for us. It is with joy we can watch our TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fabrics make a difference in the result lists and also see how the students learn more and more each year. Steps that we hope will lead the composites industry forward in the future when these students start their professional working life”.
