Mahindra in the fast lane

Mahindra Racing
tests its MotoGP bike

As speed

met balance and grace met power, Mahindra became India’s first automotive company

to test its official bike the GP125 in its corporate colors, on a the final day

at the predominantly wet, windy and cold Estoril circuit in Portugal.

Indian team was present at the circuit with riders Danny Webb and Marcel

Schrotter along with team principal Mufaddal Choonia.


the wet and windy conditions were not very conducive for testing bikes, 19 year

old Webb clocked in a few lap times even as his team mate, struggled to get onto

the track with a heavy downpour. Mahindra’s own Italy based Engines Engineering

have designed their GP125. They ran the bike in its red and silver livery only

for a few laps before switching back to plain black.


its popularity and now an Indian team to cheer for, Mahindra could certainly hope

for a loyal fan following in India for its MotoGP team competing in the 125cc

category. Mahindra Racing team will be present for the three day testing at

Jerez, Spain from March 4-6.
