Last year, Tata Motors held the inaugural T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship and Season 2 of it will be announced on 20th January 2015. The championship will be held in the second half of March and will be bigger in scale compared to last year. Tata Motors has made a host of changes to the truck but the details are embargoed till next week. We will be posting a full review of the Prima Season 2 Race Truck which we drove on the company’s test track recently. It’s a whole lot of fun and we did manage to hit a top speed of 140 km/hr!
Coming to the specs of the T1 Prima Race Truck, the Season 1 model was powered by a 8.9-litre, six-cylinder Cummins diesel engine, generating 370 BHP of peak power at 2100 RPM and 1550 Nm of peak torque at 1300 RPM. The engine was matched to a 9-speed EATON transmission. Last year’s truck had a claimed top speed of 110 km/hr. Details about this year’s truck will be revealed next week and given our experience behind the wheel, the expectations are naturally high.
Meanwhile checkout the Tata T1 Prima Season 2 Race Truck in action in the above video and yes, it does drift and lift a wheel if you go aggressive on the throttle.
