Qatar GP

light_r_bottomlight_l_bottom

Mahindra Racing’s hopes of scoring points in the first GP of 2017 were dashed under the Qatari floodlights, when big-hearted class rookie Marco Bezzecchi crashed out after fighting his way to the front of a fierce group. He had started the last of 18 laps in 12th place, leading the second group.

The 18-year-old Italian rookie, riding for the French CIP team in his first GP as a full-time rider, had overcome some fast company in the tight chasing pack, which was circulating at the same pace as the leaders. He had been the best-placed of the six Mahindra-mounted riders, dropping to the back after a fall. Bezzecchi would remount to finish 25th.

There was encouragement for the team in spite of the disappointing results. The Mahindra MGP3O has been completely revised, and has proved both fast and reliable in preseason tests and at the first GP, showing the core strength of the package.

Mahindra were just three places away from the points in today's Argentine GP, second round of the 2017 World Championship series in the ultra-close Moto3 class.

But close is not good enough for the only Indian constructor in World Championship racing, especially after three race victories in 2016, and the team is looking forward to fighting hard in the remaining 16 rounds.

For the six Mahindra riders – five of them Grand Prix rookies – the goals are still clear, on a completely revised MGP3O machine that showed strong speed potential and the bike's trademark impeccable handling in pre-season tests.

Mahindra completed the third of the opening three fly-away MotoGP races today just two places away from the points, and are looking forward to regrouping when the European season begins in a fortnight.

It has been a difficult start for the only Indian constructor in the world championships, with the all-new version of the Mahindra MGP3O still finding its feet in the ultra-close Moto3 class.

Now, after the far-away rounds in Qatar, Argentina and today in the USA, the team returns to its base in Italy, with the chance to put the final polish on the new machine, and resume steady strong finishes, as a follow-up to the three wins in Mahindra’s best-yet 2016 season.
