Our History



Democritus Racing Team (DRT) was founded in October 2015, mainly by students of the Department of Production and Management Engineering of the Democritus University of Thrace, in Xanthi. The team’s objective is to design and construct a single-seat race car, following the rules and regulations of the International Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), and finally to compete in the organisation’s events. At the same period as the team’s creation, our cooperation with the team’s Faculty Advisor, Associate Professor and President of the PME Department Dr. Antonios Gasteratos, was established. Dr Gasteratos constitutes our link with the Democritus University and is in constant communication with the directors in order to ensure the best possible support by the university society as well as the town of Xanthi.
