Published On Mar 17, 2016
T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship! The label you see all over since the flags have gone up for the ever electrifying, ever colossal of the contests to rise on the Indian soil.
As we all are pretty thrilled to see the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship unveiling the glorious pack of 6 Teams, 12 International Racers, 12 Indian Racers in the first ever Truck Racing Championship in India, we see a host of trailing thoughts about safety, increasingly making it to the front row of the event.
Well, that comes naturally to a motor sporting event to be doled out at such a big level. Specially, the one that has PRIMA trucks rushing against each other to claim their piece of sprinting splendor.
Before it infects any further panic you need to learn about what all safety measures are taken to hold it right. Taking all those traces of anticipated driving fallouts and safety concerns into considerations, Buddh Circuit comes out making no mistake in making safety speak big and bold.
Look for no less than:
Among a lot of big and small ideas to combat accidents on the tracks, this one stands foremost. The dense layer of gravel spread all over the edge of the track is effective in down-speeding the rustling trucks.
High Grip Tarmac
Battered together with the layer of gravel trap, high grip tarmac not just helps reducing the speed but also prevents the truck from flicking over. This one’s surely going to prove a great safety hack for hefty trucks.
Look for a huge pack of tyres running all along the edge sewed through the high grip tarmac. To get them some height to protect a bad collision off the track, they come in a crew of 4-5 pieces in each file. What a use of worn-out tyres.
This one proves to be a life-saver for the driver in case of a nasty pileup. This solid malleable barrier absorbs the impact of the collision and doesn’t let the vehicle rush into hard surfaces, thereby avoiding a wicked crash.
Metal barriers come to the vehicle’s rescue when none of the above options remain effective. These are sturdy enough to safeguard the trucks to bang into rocks and even save the crowd from deadly mishap.
Placed much higher compared to metal barrier, fenced barrier is there to safeguard the spectators from randomly flying parts of the crashed car and keep them all protected from accidental cartwheeling. With trucks, expect them to stand even taller to protect you well in the crowd.
All these barriers come quite effective, looking to offer ample safety to all those attending and participating in the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship. Tested under controlled mock conditions and tried through a series of real contests, these imposing measures refer to the best mold of material and safety standards – all met with quality, for you to expect least of misadventure and whole of pleasure!
