Team DCE Xtreme bags RAFTAR award @ SAEINDIA Event in Indore
ICAT Raftar Award
Amongst DTU’s famed car teams, it is the Mini Baja team- DCE Xtreme, which has taken the spotlight this time round! The team worked over the past six months to participate in the Baja SAEINDIA Event in Indore in January, 2010. Continuing with the tradition of giving consistent performances over the last few years, the team ranked 4th out of 80 teams from all over the country. The team also bagged the ICAT Raftar Award for Rs 50000, for optimum weight and acceleration, which proved to be an icing on the cake.
The event, which is renowned for its rugged terrains, tricky turns and muddy pits proved to be an ideal platform for this 11 member team to exhibit and implement its engineering skills. Quoting one of the judges our car was “Very basic, yet outdoing the others”. The team’s USP was the use of the Continuously Variable Transmission for its drivetrain, which was appreciated by the organizers, judges as well as other teams in the event.
