Mahindra MGP30, new 2012 Moto3 race bike of Mahindra racing team successfully completed its first official test at Valencia last week. This one is a strong, stylish powerful product from the Mahindra group which will appear for Mahindra in the upcoming races.
The 250cc four-stroke machine will contest MotoGP's new Moto3 World Championship commencing in Qatar on 8 April. The three-day test, at Spain's Ricardo Tormo circuit just outside Valencia, gave riders Danny Webb and Marcel SchrÃ¶tter a chance to evaluate the performance of the brand new Mahindra against its rivals in the exciting new class.
No official times were available from a chilly Valencia where more than 30 Moto3 riders representing six different manufacturers took to the track along with a similar number of Moto2 entries.
However, Mahindra Racing timed Webb with a best lap of 1'43.2 from a total of 98 completed over the three days, placing him well up the unofficial order. Despite a small off today and a few technical niggles, the 20-year-old British rider was in buoyant mood at the test's conclusion.
