Rome : Mahindra Racing on Sunday created history by winning the constructors title in the 125GP class at the Italian National Motorcycle Racing Championship at the Vallelunga Circuit here on Sunday.

The team of 17 year old Miroslav Popov and the Austrian teenager Lukas Trautmann finished first and second in the 16-lap final race of the season.

Popov started the race from pole position after the outstanding performance displayed in qualifying while Trautmann moved up from the third row of the grid.

Popov was in the lead immediately after the start while Trautmann was third at turn one. Popov also set the fastest lap of the race.

After making its CIV debut this year, Mahindra Racing became the first from India to win an international motorsport event when Moretti took the chequered flag at the season-opening race in Mugello, Italy in March.

The team won six out of the eight races in the championship with three spectacular double podiums.
