    They will participate in the 4stroke 250cc class of the series.

    The signing two strong riders shows the team’s commitment to continue their 2012 success at the CIV. Mahindra Racing became the first team from India to win an international motorsport championship in Europe, when they won the Constructors’ Title in the 125GP class of the CIV in their debut year - 2012. The team recorded six victories from eight races, with three spectacular double podium finishes.

    The CIV Championship is held on the finest racetracks of Italy. For years, this has been one of the leading national motorcycle racing competitions in Europe, launching some of Europe’s best young motorcycle racing talent into the international arena. From Giacomo Agostini to Valentino Rossi, many of the top names in the World MotoGP championship have been Italian Championship winners. The event is organised by FMI-Federazione Motociclistica Italiana.

    This follows the Mahindra Racing team’s recent announcement of the exciting rider pairing of Spaniard Efrén Vázquez and Portuguese teenager Miguel Oliveira for the 2013 Moto3™ World Championship, which begins on April 7 in Qatar.

    Rider Andrea Locatelli -

    “I am thrilled to have joined a committed Indian team like Mahindra Racing for the CIV Season 2013. I have been following their development in the past and I am impressed by the progress they have made in such a short span of time.”
    Teammate Michael Rinaldi -

    “Mahindra Racing enjoys considerable support from the motorsports community in India and I look forward to working along with Locatelli and doing really well for the team in the coming months. Though the championship is highly competitive, we are confident of a strong performance on a good machine”

    Valid point. But you must understand that Mahindra is not racing for fun. It is interested in winning and winning only. So they will pick the best riders that they can afford, irrespective of nationality. Of course if they could find an Indian rider to do the job, then all the better for them, as they will get better brand building in the Indian market.
