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.
