Full Throttle Trails soon in Lonavala
Tata Motors Full Throttle Trails, a half-day off-roading event from Tata Motors Full Throttle, will soon be held in Lonavala on Sunday, October 7.
Tata Motors Full Throttle, the motorsport division of Tata Motors, recently launched Tata Motors Full Throttle Trails, a series of half-day off-roading events for owners of Tata Motors SUVs. With the next trail scheduled to take place in Lonavala, Tata Motors Full Throttle will offer participants, an opportunity to take a short break from mundane day-to-day driving and explore off-roading in their favourite Tata SUVs.
The Lonavala trail is expected to receive participation of over 40 Tata Motors SUV owners.
Maneuvering through challenging surfaces like slush beds, hills, bumpy courses, sand beds and many more, participants will have to complete the trail within a maximum stipulated time, to qualify as finishers. Cougar Motorsports is the programme partner, for planning and execution of Tata Motors Full Throttle Trails.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ashesh Dhar, Head Utility Vehicles, Tata Motors said, "With off-roading gaining popularity, and due to the lack of off-roading tracks, Full Throttle Trails will give enthusiasts an opportunity not only to experience the thrill, ruggedness and toughness of their Tata Motors SUV’s, but will also familiarise them with some serious off-road driving techniques, in a planned and safe manner. Besides Full Throttle Trails also offers customers a quick weekend getaway, in the proximity of their respective cities."
