Mahindra hints that its two wheeler division stands to gain from the new high-tech Italian engineering centre.

Mahindra Racing has announced that it has moved its MotoGP team HQ to Varese, Italy. The move helps the team to stay close to the action.

The company has established its new state-of-the-art engineering and development centre right in the heart of Lombardy region which has a rich heritage of motorcycle racing and production. The location was also influenced by the local government’s support and the availability of top notch¬†talent pool.

Mahindra Racing recruited many executives in the vicinity who have rich experience in racing, motorcycle engineering and production. The move is expected to strengthen the Indian constructor’s prospects in Moto3 category of MotoGP world championship.

Mahindra Racing MotoGP HQ at Varese, Italy, has advanced CAD and CAE equipment.

The new infrastructure incorporates computer aided engineering and design (CAE and CAD) and FMEA (Failure Modes Effects Analysis). The facility also houses advanced test and quality control labs, prototype manufacturing tools and a spare parts warehouse.

Mahindra Racing has become a race bike supplier to Moto3 teams starting from 2015 instead of just having one factory team. The team started with two factory backed riders in 2011 and now supports 9 riders in four teams (with MAPFRE Aspar Mahindra as its factory team).

Speaking about the move to Italy, Mufaddal Choonia, CEO, Mahindra Racing, hinted that the innovations from the new facility will not only benefit the brand’s racing outfit but also its budding two wheeler division (MTWL).
