First official test of new bike from Mahindra racing completed.

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 Schrötter 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.
