INDIA: The TVS OMC RR310 race bike set the new record for the fastest lap around Chang International Circuit. The bike is an evolution of the road-spec Apache RR310. It was used by all racers in the inaugural edition of the TVS Asia One Make Championship.
The race bike was able to achieve a remarkable top speed of 211.3 km/h, which was 9 km/h faster than the bike’s previous record for a 310cc bike. TVS became the first Indian manufacturer to do so on a worldwide scale by hosting the first Asia One Championship, putting it on the map of international motorsports.
The record-breaking run was made possible by the significant modifications that were made to the bike. In addition to adjusting the bike’s suspension and engine braking characteristics, modifications to the internal engine proved critical in the bike’s performance.
Additionally, the bike was able to achieve its best lap time of 1:50.850 at the Chang International Circuit in Thailand thanks to the aforementioned top speed.
Vorapong Malahuan dominated the riders in the the company’s Asia One Make Championship, winning the overall title by winning both races in the competition’s final round. Watcharin Tubtimon and Decky Tiarno Aldy came in second and third place, respectively.
The company announced the One Make Championship on the 21st of April earlier this year. The championship’s target is to help find and develop young racing talent across Southeast Asia.
Along with the Asia Road Racing Championship, the TVS Asia One Make Championship competed in four nations. Following the ARRC season, the championship raced on four tracks in Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, and Thailand.
The championship featured sixteen riders, all of who used the same race-prepared TVS Apache RR310. TVS selected the riders for the championship during the first test on April 27 at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia.
