"We proudly continue to contribute to the championship for the fourth consecutive year. WABCO's partnership with Tata Motors for the T1 PRIMA TRUCK RACING CHAMPIONSHIP is a strong testimony that WABCO provides best-in-class safety solutions for trucks on the track and on the road," said Mr. P Kaniappan, Managing Director, WABCO INDIA LIMITED.
