Mahindra Racing to withdraw from Moto3 World Championship at end of 2017


Mahindra Racing, winner of three races in the 2016 Moto3™ World Championship, will end its participation in the series after the conclusion of the 2017 season.

The move, announced by the USD19 billion Mahindra Group, is the result of a strategic shift in Mahindra Racing’s focus toward electric vehicle racing. Mahindra will instead increase its focus on the FIA Formula E Championship, where the team recently won its first race in Berlin and currently sits a strong third in the overall standings.

Mahindra entered MotoGP in 2011 to develop its technological expertise in two-wheelers and increase global brand recognition. In a very short period, Mahindra made its mark in the fiercely competitive Moto3 category, with the MGP3O race bike recording a total of 13 podium finishes, including three race wins, against long-established opposition.

Misfortune for Tech3 Pair at Dutch Grand Prix


Johann Zarco endured a tricky time today at the Motul TT Assen after an eventful race in front of 105,000 enthusiastic spectators.
