DJSR -01 : Weight - 248 kg’s
DJS Racing debuted in Formula Student Germany 2014 with its first prototype DJSR 01. With a group of 20 students and limited resources the team successfully managed to come up with a single cylinder open wheel racing car which was among the fastest teams to clear scrutineering. The team also placed 24th in the business event, making it 5th among the Indian teams overall, a remarkable feat for a debutant. Due to minor technical glitches the team couldn’t compete in the dynamic events but learned a lot from the experience which paved the way for future advancements.

DJSR -02 : Weight - 199.5 kg’s
DJSR 02 was built using a KTM Duke 390 engine, with the aim of reducing weight and thus boosting accelerating capability. The second prototype weighed just under 200 kilograms, achieving a 30% weight reduction over the previous variant. With this car the team competed at Formula Student India 2016 securing a 6th position overall despite being a first year team at the competition. The all inclusive transmission and suspension design along with the compact packaging of the car lead the team to securing a coveted 4th position in the design finals. The team’s well maintained finances and budgeting resulted in the team placing 2nd in the cost event. DJSR 02 was among 9 teams who competed in the endurance event. The judges acclaimed the team’s design methodology and saw great potential in the team.

DJSR -03 : Weight - 180 kg’s
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.
