DUT students celebrate setting a new world record for acceleration on Hoosier racing tires.VALKENBURG, NETHERLANDS (September 20, 2013) -- Recently, students from Delft University of Technology gathered at Valkenburg airport in an attempt to set a new world record for acceleration in an electric car.

Using last year's DUT12 FSAE vehicle, the team put their lightest driver, Marly Kuijpers, behind the wheel to pilot the 4WD Hoosier-shod rocket ship. 

The team was trying to better the previous record of 2.68 seconds to reach 100 km/h (62 mph). 

Due to the cool conditions and since the run was expected to be less than three seconds, the team determined it necessary to pre-warm their tires. More
