Democritus Racing Team was founded in 2015 at Xanthi, Thrace. The team represents Democritus University of Thrace at competitions organized by Formula Student and SAE International (Society of Automotive Engineers) racing against student teams on a global scale.
In order to compete, the team must design and construct a prototype race car, based on a series of rules dictated by the organizations. The main objective is to challenge participating teams to innovate and solve complex engineering problems.
The team is comprised of 35 students deriving from all departments of Democritus University of Thrace. More specifically, our members study Electrical and Computer Engineering, Production and Management Engineering, Architecture, Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. The students, alongside their studies, have the chance to receive practical experience in manufacturing, as well as develop soft skills, such as communicational, organizational and presentation skills.
