    Tata Prima T1 Truck Racing Championship kicks off at the Buddh International Circuit


    Trucks. They’re as intrinsic a part of Indian highways as potholes are. Or the unfortunate and ill- time crossing of cattle. In fact they’re such a part of India that we quite often pass by them without a second glance. But here are a bunch of trucks that you cannot just pass by with nary a care. Why, you ask? Because these are the Tata Prima T1 racing trucks that form the fleet that will compete in the first ever Tata Prima T1 Truck Racing Championship. The Tata Prima T1 Truck Racing Championship was conceived in December 2012, with Tata Motors deciding to take their ‘world truck’, the Prima, racing. In association with the British Truck Racing Association, the series was conceptualised and has finally come to fruition. The series will be run as per the FIA’s rules for truck racing. This means that all trucks have been checked scrupulously to ensure they maintain the exacting standard of safety as stipulated by the FIA. Of course, FIA rules don’t need the trucks to be homologated – any truck with an engine cubic capacity of up to 15 litres is allowed. The necessary modifications, like the addition of a rollcage, side under run protection, steering wheel with a quick release mechanism, FIA approved racing seats, fire extinguishers, etc have been made.
