There I was in a small room, one storey above the ground. The room happened to be bobbing and rumbling in a slow but determined fashion towards the short-ish straight of Tata Motors’ test track. Incredibly, this otherworldly sensation felt oddly familiar. Of course! A few years ago I had driven the carmaker’s hulking Mine Protected Vehicle at this very place. Despite the similarity of the high stance and the sensation of sitting on a moving mountain, the 2015 T1 Prima Racing Truck was quite a different experience. Instead of the MPV’s vault like cabin with stacks of switches and buttons, the cabin was completely stripped out and breezy. For instance, there is no dashboard or panels, metal or plastic, to hide the BIW. In keeping with regulations for racing, nets have replaced the windows.
