TVS Racing organized an event called TVS Apache Racing Experience exclusively for the TVS Apache RTR owners at the Madras Motor Sports Club race track. The main aim of this event was to give the Apache customers a clear insight on what their race bred machines are capable of and to let them know all about TVS racing and their motocross and track racing machines. This event was organized at four selected cities across India, viz. Chennai, Pune, Gwalior and Delhi. The participation into this event was very easy as the owners of RTR 160 and RTR 180 had to just register their names at any local TVS showrooms. At the time of registration, the participants received a decal which was considered as entry badge and was also presented at the venue. The entry into the event was subjected to signing of an indemnity bond at the time of registrations which was also compulsory to be presented at the venue. The bike had to be brought in their stock condition i.e. no performance tuning or upgrades were allowed on the machines so as to keep uniformity in the machines. Out of all, the main requirements were the helmets, driver’s license and lots of guts!! Non-compliance with the rules and regulation would lead to disqualification. These machines would be racing in their respective classes. Top two riders from each class would be selected, similarly from each region and they would get to participate in the final race "RTR CUP" in the upcoming month of May 2012. To reward their hardwork and talent, the winner from each class of finals would get a special training at the Silverstone track in UK.Vishnu Gopal and Sahay Fernando from Hindustan Institute of Technology, Chennai participated in the event in 180cc and 160 cc respectively.
