TVS has kickstarted the Apache Racing Experience (ARE) 2018 exclusively for owners of the TVS Apache series. The first round was held in Bengaluru, and saw Apache racing enthusiasts experience the full range of TVS Apache motorcycles on the Meco Kartopia race track.
The event began with a theory session on track riding by National Road Racing Champions Jagan Kumar, Harry Sylvester, KY Ahmed, Kannan Subramaniam and Aishwarya Pissay. The Apache riders were then guide on their technique and riding skills on the race track. The training included detailed sessions on track riding techniques, braking and cornering, which was then followed by time laps for each category – TVS Apache RTR 160, 180 and 200 and declaration of winners for each category.
To be held across 24 cities in 2018-19, ARE will culminate at MMRT in Chennai. The final round will see winners across the cities compete in their respective categories – Apache RTR 160, 180 and 200 – to become the ARE Category Winner. TVS Racing will support the activity with necessary gear and ensure that the riders undergo professional training at the race track astride TVS Racing motorcycles, prior to the final race. Post the success of the first event in Bengaluru, ARE is set to commence across the country over the course of the year.
