Prom Racing, the NTUA team that has been participating in the Formula Student World Competition since 2008, swept the distinctions in the races this summer. Prom Racing designed and built its first electric racing car and is the first Greek team to win a Formula Student competition!


In competitions held even on famous Formula 1 tracks such as the Hungarian Hungaroring and the German Hockenheim, the NTUA team dominated, winning in many cases even the 1st place in all dynamic races, with top distinctions in the categories Endurance, Engineering Design Event and Cost Event.


The NTUA team dominance was absolute in the race in the Czech Republic, its appearance in The Netherlands was also exceptional, whereas in the competition in Germany it ranked 5th among the 38 top electric teams in the world.


The team managed to overcome the difficulties of the pandemic and of the transition from thermal to electric motor for the car. The Schools of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering of NTUA and the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) of NTUA as well as the sponsors of the team had a decisive contribution to the success of Prom Racing.
