  • TVS kickstarts the Young Media Racers Program 2023

    PETRONAS TVS Racing team returns with the 7th edition of the PETRONAS TVS Young Media Racers Program at Madras Motor Race Track (MMRT). The program is in line with TVS Racing's commitment to promoting motorsports in India and training young enthusiasts representing media houses, who are passionate about motorsports. The program has successfully trained over 150 journalists by sharpening their racing skills over the years.

    TVS Racing pioneered the One Make Championship in 1994 and has thus expanded the program into four categories in India – Rookie, Women’s, Media and Expert. Additionally, TVS Racing organised the first-ever Asia One Make Championship in 2022.

    After attending a full-day classroom and rigorous training session by the TVS Racing Team, the 16 fastest riders from a total of 31 journalists and influencers from across India were selected to race for the entire season in the media category this year. These riders will ride the race-spec TVS Apache RTR 200 throughout the season.

    TVS Racing has been playing a key role in flourishing the motorsports culture in India and the company’s “Track To Road” philosophy has been pivotal in engineering the TVS Apache series. The performance motorcycle brand has recently achieved its 5 million global sales milestone, becoming the fastest-growing in the segment.

    Speaking on the occasion, Mr Vimal Sumbly, Head Business – Premium, said, "As a flagbearer in the Indian motorsports arena, PETRONAS TVS Racing is continuously exciting the motorsport enthusiasts through focused initiatives like Young Media Racers Program, offering training to racing enthusiasts from the media community. It is heartening to see the passion and enthusiasm that these young enthusiasts demonstrated at the selection round. We are confident that the training sessions planned for them will further fuel their performance and I wish all the riders good luck for this season."

    The first-of-its-kind ‘TVS Young Media Racer Program’ is executed in two phases. In the first phase of the program, the company enrolls young media professionals for a structured training program conducted under the expert guidance of FMSCI professionals. The program is focused on acquainting journalists and influencers with the finer nuances of road racing to enhance their technique. In the second phase of the program, the top riders from the selection round compete for their best lap time from over 3 race weekends as part of TVS One Make Championship which is organised on the sidelines of Indian National Road Racing Championship.
