Steve Thomas of Team Allied
Partners signed into Season II of the T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship 2015
in style, finishing fastest in the 20 minute Qualifying Session on March 14,
2015, at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC). Stuart Oliver of Team Castrol
Vecton, last years’ T1 Prima Truck Racing Champion, was second fastest, with
Oly Janes finishing third fastest also of Team Castrol Vecton.
Steve Thomas said "It was
a really good day to have finished first in Qualifying today, my second time
racing here in India at the BIC. One of the main things we’ve learnt is that
the T1 Prima Race truck is very reliable. All the race trucks competing today
were evenly matched, making for a very competitive final race. I am delighted
to be here and hope to finish on the podium in tomorrow’s main race”
