Delhi T1 Prima: Singh and Nagarjuna emerge winners in Indian class

Jagat Singh and Nagarjuna A emerged victorious in their respective batches of Indian drivers in the Tata T1 Prima Truck Racing Championship at the Buddh International Circuit.

The 12 drivers chosen from among the 17 shortlisted were divided into two groups of six for the two races held.
