The Car[edit]

The DUT12 is the second electric car of the DUT Racing team. The biggest difference compared to the DUT11 is the four-wheel-drive system introduced this year. This makes it possible to use the brake energy from all wheels to power the motors which results in higher efficiency. In the DUT12 the batteries are no longer placed behind the driver, but on both sides alongside the driver for better handling. Prepregs have been used to produce the monocoque, saving weight compared to the previous car.
