I believe that DR03 is Dedacciai's Zero Tre tubing. If so, it is a regular double-butted cromoly. Whether it is suitable for touring will depend on the diameter and wall thickness. You can ask your builder. My Heron Wayfarer touring frames use premium double-butted cromoly with 31.8 mm x 0.9/0.6/0.9 mm downtubes and 28.6 mm x 0.8/0.6/0.8 mm top tubes. This would be stiff enough for loaded touring. If you wanted to carry an extra heavy load, you can go with even thicker tubing, but that is getting hard to find.

is it also good for RACING? i'm thinking of just having a custom bike made using Dedacciai Zero Tres tubing. Steel for racing? what do you think?

I will presume that you are serious, so...

I will instead recommend the best Dedacciai tubes--EOM 16.5 (or some similar name), or the best Zero tubes, Zero 18MCDV6 H.T. (I have a Somec in this stuff, and the tubes are OS, multishaped, light, and as good as I have ever experienced in steel. Either tubeset would be excellent for racing or just riding.
