Mahindra announced the withdrawal of their cars from the Cape Town E-Prix, as well as their customer team ABT Cupra.
After not running in the group Qualifying session with limited explanations from either team, the manufacturer has confirmed they will not run in this afternoon’s race.
Citing safety issues on their suspension, the Mahindra-powered cars of ABT Cupra will also not run this afternoon, with Kelvin van der Linde missing out on his home race.
“A thorough investigation on the suspension elements of the Mahindra M9Electro race cars will take place on the team’s return to the UK.
“The safety of our drivers and extended teams is of utmost importance at this point in time.”
The bumpy characteristics of the track have plagued many teams this weekend, with several having issues putting laps together or even finding themselves in the wall.
The team will have a month between the action in Cape Town and the race in Sao Paulo to find solutions to their issues.
