Mahindra Racing is determined to make an impression at the 2021 ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, the world’s first all-electric street racing series. The team has raced in every Formula E season so far, beginning with the series’ inaugural year – 2014-15.
“It’s been an incredible journey, but we head into the season more fired up than ever. We’ve learned our lessons and are getting back in the fight at the front,” said Dilbagh Gill, Team Principal and CEO, Mahindra Racing, who is thrilled about the team’s prospects.
The Formula E Championship is the essential proving ground for race-to-road technology that can augment Mahindra Racing’s future EVs and sustainable mobility technologies. The team will head into the season with a double header in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia on February 26/27.
But with a strong driver line-up comprising Alexander Sims and Alex Lynn (the latter making his debut for Mahindra Racing), the M7Electro with an all-new ZF powertrain and a technical innovation for its transmission system, and an experienced technical team, Mahindra Racing has a competitive advantage.
With the series accorded world championship status by the FIA, motorsports’ governing body, Mahindra Racing will be competing with a host of the world’s top manufacturers to become the first-ever Indian team to win a world championship in motorsports.
Mahindra Racing has been committed to reducing its impact on the planet since its birth in 2014. Since then, it has been the first Formula E team to be awarded the FIA Environmental Accreditation Three-Star rating and has been certified Net Carbon Zero footprint since inception, the only team to win that certification. Mahindra Racing has also pledged to greater ROCE (Return on Climate and Environment), while seeking credible, advanced and next-generation mobility solutions.
