DJSR 03’s first competition was Formula Bharat 2017 held in Coimbatore where team finished 6th overall. We were awarded 1st Prize in Design Event because of our excellent skills on validating the concepts behind designing the car. Along with this, team performed really well in static events and were 2nd best in Static events and 3rd most fuel efficient car at the competition.
The team even qualified for Formula Student Germany by being the 10th fastest team to clear the quiz all around the world. For this event, the car was upgraded after its Indian competition by implementing Drexler Differential, Data Acquisition System, Race Capture, etc. It was acclaimed the Best Indian team at the competition and was the 2nd best Asian team too. Team secured 41st position overall with 13th place in Design event, 16th place in Design event and 23rd place in Business Plan. Also, it was the sole Indian team to complete all Dynamic events.
DJS racing is the only team in the history of formula Bharat to win the award for the best designed car for two consecutive years
