TVS Srichakra will sponsor the MMSC Motorcycle Endurance Race 2021 with TVS Eurogrip tyres. The racing event will be held at the iconic MMRT circuit for over two hours on Sunday, March 28. Some of the country’s top riders are among the 48 team entries for this year’s event.

The two-hour endurance race will have a Le Mans (running) start and will be contested in three categories – Pro-stock; 301-400cc, Stock; 165cc (restricted to under-25 riders) and Girls (TVS Apache RTR 200) with two riders in each team.   

The Pro-Stock category will be headlined by the team of veteran international riders. Rajini Krishan and Sarath Kumar will be up against skilled pairings like Karthik Mateti - Yashas RL and Abhimanyu Gautam - Anand R in this mid-weight displacement category.

In the Stock 165cc category, Mohan Babu and Uday Prakash will be the pair to watch while the talented Lani Zena Fernandez, runner-up in the 2020 National championship, and her team-mate Arpitha Bhat are expected to dominate the Girls category on the Apache RTR 200.

P Madhavan, EVP – Sales & Marketing, TVS Srichakra Limited, said, “We are proud to partner with MMSC Motorcycle Endurance Race, and equip the bikes with our tyres. The Endurance Race will be the perfect opportunity for both aspiring and seasoned bikers. Given the challenging nature of the circuit, it will be a unique platform to showcase our products and demonstrate performance. TVS Eurogrip tyres are built for high-performance biking and are an ideal fit for this championship.” 

MMSC Vice-President Vicky Chandhok said, “We are absolutely delighted that TVS Eurogrip has made an entry into racing, and the MMSC is truly grateful for their involvement. We are also overwhelmed by the response from the riders despite the challenging conditions dictated by the pandemic. Back in 2019, we had received 32 entries, but this time, the number has exceeded our expectations.” (TT)
