In the international arena of motorsporting, so far, there was no team from India who had registered a win. Now, it's a proud moment for India as Mahindra Racing became the first Indian company to register a win in this segment.
Riccardo Moretti and Sarath Kumar, who represented Team Mahindra in the event, kicked off the season on a high note. At the 125GP Italian Championship, team Mahindra's ace rider Riccardo Moretti finished first at the opening race of the season.
Sarath Kumar also had a good run at the show but he had to retire following a technical glitch. This win puts Mahindra on a high and hence we can expect fireworks in the future races from this duo.
"When we made our MotoGP debut in 2011, we dreamt of becoming the first Indian company team to win an international motorsport event. Mahindra Racing's victory is thus, a triumph not only for the Mahindra Group but for Indian Motor sports." said Mr. Anand Mahindra, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Mahindra Group
"Riccardo's strong showing is testimony to our strengths in the engineering and technology domains and has ensured greater equity for brand India and brand Mahindra across the globe." he added.
