For the fifth consecutive year, TVS Srichakra Ltd., one of India's top producers of 2 and 3-wheeler and off-highway tyres, will serve as the Petronas TVS One Make Championship's "Technical Partner." The alliance comprises a tactical relationship between Eurogrip and the TVS Apache series. All bikes competing in the event will have specially made TVS Eurogrip tyres. Over the weekend of June 3-4, the first racing event of the year took place at Kari Motor Racetrack in Coimbatore. TVS Eurogrip's main products Protorq Extreme (Zero Degree Steel Belt Radial tyres) and Remora will compete on the TVS Apache RR 310 and the TVS Apache RTR 200 bikes in the 2023 TVS One Make Championship. Let's have a look at the key facts about the Championship and what the officials have to say about this consistent partnership.
TVS Racing and the One Make Championship
One Make Racing is held in the country by TVS Racing, a pioneer in the racing industry. Open and Novice categories are included in the two main categories of the event. Since 1994, TVS Racing has been a leader in the One Make Championship, and as a result, the programme has been expanded to include four categories in India: TVS OMC-Rookie, TVS OMC-Women's, TVS OMC-Media, and TVS OMC-Expert. These racing events happen along with the renowned Indian National Motorcycle Racing. In addition, on the sidelines of the Asia Road Racing Championship in 2022, TVS Racing hosted the first-ever Asia One Make Championship.
