Mahindra Racing pulls out of Moto3, to continue as constructor
Mahindra Racing has pulled out of Moto3, and yet, it hasn't. For the 2015 Moto3 season, Mahindra won't be putting its own racing team on the grid. But, before you think the Indian manufacturer has quit the circle for good, here's good news\: Mahindra Racing is now a full-fledged constructor, and will go toe to toe with the likes of Honda and KTM.Last season, Mahindra Racing, apart from fielding its own team, supplied bikes to three Moto3 teams. This year, that number goes up to four teams - CIP, Ambrogio Racing, San Carlo Italia and Mapfre Aspar - with nine Mahindra MGP3O's to line up on the start line.Apparently, this is the perfect business model for a Moto3 team. The whole point of Mahindra having its own racing team was to get to know Moto3 inside out, and now that the team's got a fair idea, it's decided to become a constructor.Mahindra has now also got a new development facility in Varese, Italy, which, apart from working with M\&M's motorsport division, will also help develop future Mahindra two-wheelers, including products from the recently-acquired Peugeot Scooters.Dorna Sport CEO Carmelo Ezpeleta was present at the announcement, and the Indian MotoGP question was imminent. Logistical challenges are what currently hurt India's chances of hosting a GP weekend (F1, anyone?), but also, as Ezpeleta told TG.com, there is a lack of promoters in India. They did get a promoter for the World Superbike Series, but it didn't work out. No one has approached Dorna for MotoGP, but if someone does, Ezpeleta is more than willing to put Marc Marquez and the lot on the Buddh International Circuit. Promoters, if you're reading this, you know what you have to do.
