Mahindra Racing is an Indian motorsport team owned by Indian automobile manufacturer Mahindra & Mahindra. It's the first Indian constructor to participate in the FIM MotoGP World Championship in 2011, the CIV – Italian National Motorcycle Racing Championship in 2012 and the FIM CEV International Championship in 2013. In 2014 Mahindra Racing also became one of the founding ten – and the only Indian team – to compete in the FIA Formula E Championship.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

FIM MotoGP World Motorcycle Racing Championship Series[edit]

In 2011 the Mahindra Racing factory team entered the FIM MotoGP World Motorcycle Racing Championship Series in the 125cc two-stroke class. In 2012, they raced in the newly formed Moto3 (250cc four-stroke) class which replaced the 125cc class.

Mahindra Racing made history in the 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix taking the first-ever podium for an Indian constructor in the MotoGP World Championship Series.[3] In the same season, the MGP3O recorded top-five finishes in 10 of the 17 rounds, a pole position, three circuit lap records, and third position in the Constructors’ Championship.

The 2014 season saw a further three podium finishes, including second place at the German Grand Prix.

From 2015 onwards, they no longer ran their own team and concentrated instead on strengthening their development program of the successful Mahindra MGP3O racing motorcycle. The decision to focus on machine development as a full-scale constructor and open a new development centre in Besozzo, Italy only strengthens Mahindra's commitment to top-level two-wheeler racing.

Mahindra Racing put up a fierce fight at the front of the pack throughout the 2015 Moto3 World Championship season, and recorded a podium finish at the French Grand Prix.

2016 got off to a strong start with Aspar Mahindra Moto3 Team rider Francesco (Pecco) Bagnaia securing a third-place podium finish at the opening round in Qatar. The Italian teen picked up podiums in Jerez (Spain) and Mugello (Italy) before making his historic first win in Assen (Netherlands) – Mahindra and India's maiden victory in the World Championship. It proved the high-level performance capabilities of the Mahindra MGP3O racing motorcycle. Two more victories followed with John Mcphee dominating the field in a wet Czech Grand Prix and Pecco taking a wonderful seven-second win in the Malaysian Grand Prix. At the Czech Grand Prix, the Indian manufacturer also scored their first-ever double podium with John Mcphee and Jorge Martin.

In 2017 Mahindra Racing competes as a constructor in its sixth year in the Moto3 class of MotoGP and remains the only Indian constructor in the series. Mahindra Racing supplies the Mahindra MGP3O single-cylinder, 4-stroke, 250cc motorcycle to the factory Aspar Mahindra Team and other customer teams. Mahindra continues to supply an official Peugeot Motocycles derivative of the MGP3O to the factory Peugeot MC Saxoprint Team since 2016.

CIV – Italian National Motorcycle Racing Championship[edit]

The team's historic 2012 victory in the CIV Constructors' Championship (125cc – 2 stroke) made Mahindra the first Indian team to win an international motorsport championship.

Mahindra also won the CIV Constructors’ Championship (Moto3) in 2013 and again in 2015.

Grand Prix legend Max Biaggi will spearhead Mahindra's effort in the 2017 CIV – Italian National Championship (Moto3).

FIM CEV International Championship[edit]

Besides its commitment to the World Championship, Mahindra Racing has been a part of the FIM CEV International Championship (Moto3 Junior World Championship) since 2013 and supplies MGP3O machines to Team Aspar and Team LaGlisse to compete in the World Championship feeder series.

FIA Formula E Championship[edit]

Mahindra Racing is the only Indian team to compete in the FIA Formula E Championship. They entered the Championship in the inaugural season of 2014-2015 as one of the ten founding teams.

From the second season of Formula E (2015-2016), they developed their own electric powertrain to power their quartet of electric racing cars. With this second generation racing car, the M2Electro, the team hoped to build on the success of the inaugural season. Working together with Mahindra Electric – an Indian electric car company whose sole aim is to develop and produce affordable compact electric cars – and service provider Campos Racing, the Formula E team is in good hands.

The M2Electro impressed from the beginning of the season, with Nick Heidfeld scoring a first podium in the opening round in Beijing. Bruno Senna had a second place podium finish in the first of the two season finale races which took place in London. The M2Electro has also impressed with its efficiency and reliability, contributing to seven double points finishes throughout the first season.

For Season 3 of Formula E (2016-2017), Mahindra has developed the new M3Electro which has proved to be a competitive package netting nine podiums, two pole positions and two fastest lap awards. These results are underscored by Mahindra Racing’s third place in the Teams’ Championship standings. Together with drivers Felix Rosenqvist and Nick Heidfeld, the team has high technical and sporting ambitions in the ground-breaking, fully electric, street racing championship.

Season 2012[edit]

Moto3[edit]

Mahindra Racing participated in the first-ever Moto3 championship, which replaced the 125cc class in 2012. On 5 November 2011, Anand Mahindra then Vice Chairman & Managing Director of Mahindra & Mahindra, unveiled the MGP3O, the team's Moto3 Motorcycle. The MGP3O, liveried in red and white, featured a tubular steel frame and an aluminium swing arm. It weighed merely 83 kg and had a Mahindra-homologated 250cc, single-cylinder, four stroke liquid-cooled DOHC engine developed by Mahindra's Engines Engineering and Oral Engineering. The motorcycle was developed by Mahindra's Engines Engineering and Oral Engineering together. Danny Webb and Marcel Schrötter raced for the team in the first eight rounds of the Moto3 World Championship. The team scored its first Moto3 points at Le Mans on May 20, 2012, when Schrötter finished on a strong 12th position. Before the ninth round, at the Mugello Circuit, Schrötter and Team Mahindra parted ways. Riccardo Moretti, who had until then been racing for Mahindra in the CIV, stepped in for Schrötter. The first year of the new Moto3 four-stroke class proved challenging, and prompted the team into a change of direction.[9] In August 2012, Mahindra partnered with Suter Racing Technology to develop an all-new MGP3O, their Moto3 bike for the 2013 season. And, in November of the same year, they announced that accomplished riders Efrén Vázquez and Miguel Oliveira would be racing for Team Mahindra in the 2013 Moto3 season.

125 cc Italian National Motorcycle Racing Championship[edit]

[10] In early December 2012, Mahindra Racing announced its entry into the 125cc class of the Italian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (CIV) with Indian rider S. Sarath Kumar and Italian phenomenon Riccardo Moretti. Moretti was the 2009 champion in the 125cc class while Kumar is a former champion in the 130cc 4-stroke (Novice class, 2008) and the 165cc Expert Class (2009). Moretti won the season-opener, at the Mugello Circuit, Mahindra's first time earning a 1st-place finish. Kumar earned a third-place finish in the third round, at Monza. He left professional racing for personal reasons after round six. Moretti won the second and fourth races, at Imola and Mugello respectively. In the sixth round, at Misano, Moretti and new Mahindra rider Miroslav Popov finished first and second respectively; in the seventh round, again at Misano, Popov took first, while Moretti finished third.

In the final race of the 2012 season, Popov again took first place, and was joined on the podium by new Mahindra Racing rider Lukas Trautmann, who earned a second-place finish in his debut race. The double podium, Mahindra's third of the season, earned the team the 2012 CIV Constructor's Cup.[11][12]

Season 2013[edit]

Moto3[edit]

The team achieved a double Top-10 finish in the 2013 Moto3 season opener at Qatar. This result was followed by Oliveira's 5th-place finish at the Circuit of the Americas, Team Mahindra's best performance at that point. Mahindra partnered with Suter Racing Technology to develop a new Moto3 bike for the 2013 season. Efrén Vázquez and Miguel Oliveira will be representing Team Mahindra in the MotoGP Championship.[13]

Season 2014[edit]

Vázquez confirmed that he was no longer riding with Mahindra Racing in the 2014 season, and was replaced by Arthur Sissis.[16]

Season 2014 was an extremely successful year with the MGP3O recording three podiums – including a best-ever second-place finish by their customer team, Ambrogio Racing's rider Brad Binder. The first podium of the season was secured by Mahindra Racing rider Miguel Oliveira at the Assen circuit in the Dutch TT.

For the entire season, the team riders Oliveira and Andrea Migno regularly challenged at the front of the tight Moto3 pack. The MGP3O recorded six Top-4 finishes in the entire season, as Mahindra finished third overall in the Moto3 Constructors' rankings at the end of the 2014 season.

Seeing the successful performance of their bike in the 2014 season, Mahindra Racing decided that from 2015, they would renew their focus on bike development and become a full-fledged manufacturer in the Moto3 class of the World Championship.[17]

Season 2015[edit]

In 2015, Mahindra Racing became a full-scale independent constructor, supporting four customer teams in the most competitive class of the World Championship. The highlight of this move, which marked a coming of age for Mahindra Racing, was a tie up with the multiple championship-winning Aspar Team. Mahindra Racing supplied three motorcycles to the four-time champion Jorge Martinez's team, becoming their de facto factory team. The tie-up underlined their determination to transform themselves from established giant-killers to full-blown championship contenders.[18][19][20][21]

2015 Riders Line up[edit]

A new partnership with 4 times World Champion Jorge Martinez's experienced Mapfre Aspar Team was announced earlier in 2014 season,[21] leading the charge for Mahindra in the ultra-competitive Moto3 series with a three-bike line up. The Aspar Team's Mahindra MGP3Os were piloted by the 2014 Red Bull Rookies Champion, Spaniard Jorge Martin; Italian Francesco Bagnaia, a graduate of the VR 46 academy, who switched from the Sky VR46 team; and Juanfran Guevara, contesting his third Moto3 World Championship.[18][22][23][24]
