In 2014, Mahindra is competing in its third year in the Moto3™ class of MotoGP with its own 4-stroke, 250cc motorcycle: the Mahindra MGP3O, developed with respected Swiss firm Suter Racing Technology AG. Exciting Portuguese teenager Miguel Oliveira (19) is joined in the team by Australian rider Arthur Sissis (18).

The team made history at the 2013 Malaysian Grand Prix, when Oliveira claimed Mahindra Racing's first-ever podium finish, the first ever podium for an Indian manufacturer in the World Championship. The team recorded top-five finishes in 10 of the 17 rounds of the World Championship as well as a pole position and three circuit lap records with Mahindra placing third in the Constructors’ rankings.

In the competitive CIV Italian Championship, Mahindra Racing also enjoyed an impressive record having won the Constructors’ title in the 125 GP Class in 2012 and both the Constructors’ title and a one-two in the Riders’ championship in the Moto3 class in 2013.

Breaking new ground as an Indian constructor, Mahindra Racing is supplying three ‘customer teams’ in the 2014 Moto3™ World Championship. Ambrogio Racing, CIP Moto3 and San Carlo Team Italia are all campaigning MGP3O race bikes. In addition, Mahindra Racing is supplying the TMR Competicion team with two bikes to race in the FIM CEV Repsol International Championship that has become the feeder series for Grand Prix riders.

Mahindra’s bold decision to take on the world’s best at the highest level of motorcycle racing has won the team a number of prestigious awards in India, including: the NDTV Car and Bike Awards - 'Mobil 1 Motorsport Award of the Year', 2012 and 2013; the Bike India Magazine - 'Motorsport Award', 2013; and 'ZigWheels Motorsport Award of the Year', 2012.
