TVS Motor Company has announced a new partnership with Petronas. With this partnership, Petronas will become the title partner of TVS Racing. Following the new endeavour that resulted in the rebranding of the racing team, the racing bikes will have a new livery beginning this season.
This new agreement will allow the two entities to launch the Petronas TVS Racing Team. Petronas will manage the availability of high engine oil and Petronas Sprinta to the team competing in various races, including the INRC, INSC, and INMRC, as part of the alliance.
Furthermore, the collaboration will be supplemented by a business alliance in which the two will develop new oil, Petronas TVS TRU4 RacePro. It will be available for purchase in the Indian market by May of this year.
TVS Racing has been instrumental in the engineering development of the TVS Apache series. The brand’s emphasis on performance has helped it to make its product more appealing to fans. In fact, the TVS One-Make Championship is still India’s first manufacturer-backed series.
Datuk Sazali Hamzah, Executive Vice President and CEO Downstream Petronas, said, “Petronas continues to make headway across the value chain in India. Amongst the examples of a significant portfolio, enhancements include supplying LPG through IndianOil Petronas Pvt. Ltd. (IPPL), provision of rooftop solar panels via AmPlus Energy. Today, we seal a stronger partnership with one of India’s most respected OEM, TVS Motor Company, with the Petronas TVS Racing Team launch. PETRONAS lubricants have a solid track record in global motorsport events, and we are proud to support TVS Racing’s ambitions.”
Giuseppe Pedretti, Regional Managing Director, Petronas Lubricants International, commented, “The Petronas TVS Tru4 Race Pro engine oil is formulated with the same premium additive technology as the one used by the Petronas -TVS Racing team. This is so that TVS consumers can experience the same superior performance in their bikes.”
