DTL-006's carbon fibre monocoque was developed to be manufactured using a two part mould. This new process allows for more complex shapes to be used on the chassis.
The team again achieved a perfect score in Engineering Design, Skidpan and Autocross events finishing an impressive 2nd at FSAE-A in 2006.
On the back of a strong performance, UWAM's DTL-006 competed in the 2007 FSAE Michigan placing 2nd out of the 106 strong international competitors.
