    First Moto3 points for Mahindra at Le Mans

    Mahindra’s Marcel Schrötter brought home first points for Mahindra in the new Moto3 category after he finished 12th at the French GP at LeMans where difficult conditions saw more than half of the 33 starters retire from the race 

    Schrötter had started from the back of the grid after problems in qualifying, and knew he faced an uphill task. But he kept his head down while others, including his British teammate Danny Webb fell prey to the trecherous conditions.

    The race, fourth of the 17 round MotoGP championship, was won by French home hero Louis Rossi, survivor of a leading group that was ravaged by crashes.

    "We had so many problems this weekend and the conditions were treacherous. Our engine is quite aggressive, making it more difficult in the wet", said Marcel.

    "From the start, it was so difficult – so slippery you could hardly go round the corners.

    "By the end I just wanted to finish, even if I lost positions. But it paid off, because so many other riders crashed, and I did finish and it is good to get points."
