Mahindra Racing grabbed all of the headlines in the 125cc class at Valencia on Saturday, with Danny Webb taking their first pole position little over an hour after the launch of their new Moto3 bike. The Indian squad have been making progress throughout the season and Webb's pole, albeit weather assisted, rounded off a perfect day for the 2011 newcomers.

Mr Anand Mahindra, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, was in attendance for the special occasion and was thrilled to see history made on Saturday.

“It's very exciting for all of us to have that winning feeling – although we can't get ahead of ourselves, the race is tomorrow. The team has made a lot of progress in our first year, and this pole position is a good reward. Let's hope for a good race.”

After the official unveiling of the MGP30, Mr Mahindra believes the team has signalled its intentions for the 2012 campaign and can't wait to see it in action.

 “I have been watching our progress in the 125cc class all year and am now delighted to finally have the opportunity to witness the fantastic spectacle of MotoGP first hand. I am doubly pleased to be able to unveil the Mahindra Racing MGP30 in person. When the Mahindra Group sets itself a challenge, we employ ingenuity, determination and serious commitment to RISE and succeed. We have used the final year of the 125cc class to study and learn while concurrently developing our Moto3 bike in Italy. I am very proud of the achievement of our team, riders and engineers this year and very excited by the prospect of watching our wonderful new bike compete in this new class in 2012.

“Mahindra has made a strong commitment to MotoGP. We are here for the long term and we intend to succeed. Ladies and gentlemen, watch out! The Indians are coming.”
