At the action-packed, rain-hit T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship 2015, defending champion Stuart Oliver of Team Castrol Vecton powered his way to the chequered flag to emerge victorious yet again.

 

Starting second on the grid in Super Qualifying, Oliver went on to clinch the title for the second consecutive time helping Team Castrol Vecton grab Team Title for the second time in as many years. Steve Thomas of Team Allied Partners, who qualified fastest on Saturday, was the first runner-up, with Team Tata Technologies’ Steven Powell clinching the second runner-up position.

 

High voltage, adrenaline pumping, and edge-of-the-seat action during overtaking maneuvers and high speed cornering had the 45,000 plus audience roaring at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. The atmosphere was electrifying and the 12 drivers on the grid drove with all their heart.

It was a treat to watch defending champion Stuart Oliver and pole sitter Steve Thomas battling each other for 16 laps, right till the chequered flag. In what was nothing short of extraordinary truck racing, both the drivers drove bravely on a wet tack, often making body contact and trading positions on numerous occasions providing the crowd with a remarkable racing experience.

 

Stuart Oliver, T1 Prima Truck Racing Champion 2015 said, “It was an amazing experience. I think one thing I want to say is a big huge thank you to all the fans coming out all this way, all the flags, all the caps, everything, it made such a difference this weekend. I really, really do appreciate it. Steve Thomas and Steven Powell were phenomenal competitors. They did an amazing job of keeping me on my toes, pushing me all the way up to the podium. It means even more than the first one. I feel so blessed.”
