Tata Gears Up for Motorsports, Launches Full Throttle
Called Tata Motors Full Throttle, the team will make its debut in the series on February 22nd in Ahmedabad, Gujarat and will hold the steering wheel of 2 Safari SUVs and 2 Xenon XT pick-up trucks.
“With best in class technologies in our product range, we will now be able to showcase these technologies through Tata Motors' 'Full Throttle'. The platform will help the company in organising and synergising all efforts and activities in the area of motorsports including development and testing," R Ramakrishnan, VP, Tata Motors, said in a statement according to a Rush Lane report.
"The participants from Tata Motors in the Desert Storm Rally are all experienced drivers with enough experience of racing in India behind them. We are confident of a good show in the rally as well as other racing events to be organised later.”
The best of all is that Tata Motors thinks that taking part in motorsport competitions will also help the company improve its existing products, so it doesn't rule out the possibility to see more powerful models in the near future.
“Our participation will also help in better understanding the capabilities of our products (cars) on display," S. G. Saxena, Head, Utility Vehicles, Tata Motors, explained.
