Tata Motors comes back with season two of the T1 PRIMA Truck racing championship. The event will take place at the Buddh International Formula 1 Circuit in Greater Noida on March 15 . Twelve racing behemoths weighing about six tonnes each will compete against each other at the racing championship.
The series, spanning two days, (day one March 14 will be dedicated to media) will use heavily-modified Tata Prima trucks that are capable of putting out 370 horsepower and reaching a top speed of 130 kilometers per hour driven by international drivers. There will be two Tata Prima races, Six – Lap Sprint Race & Eighteen -Lap Main Race; six teams will compete with each other in both races.
The six teams for the T1 PRIMA TRUCK RACING CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON II are –
- Team Castrol Vecton
- Team Cummins
- Team Tata Technologies Motorsports
- Team Allied Partners
- Team Dealer Warriors
- Team Dealer Daredevils
The entire T1 race has been planned and is being executed by Integrated event management and marketing company T.I.C headquartered in Delhi. Based on the expectations from TATA Motors, T.I.C. came up with an idea of Truck Racing which was a popular sport in international countries. Objective was to motivate truck driving as an aspirational profession amongst youth in India.
The Tata Prima T1 Modified trucks are inspected and assessed by FMSCI to ensure that they are race ready with fresh technical modifications including Optimized Drive Train for top speed of 130 kmph, Lighter aggregates for weight reduction, Lower chassis height (CG) for better stability, improved caster for better handling at high speed, New improved brake cooling system, bigger dia steering wheel for better ergonomics and efforts and New exteriors.
