On Sunday, Enaam Ahmed made history by becoming the first Pakistani to finish in the top five of the INDY NXT Grand Prix, a prestigious Formula car racing event held in Alabama, United States.
The race took place at the Barber Motorsports Park and attracted a total of 18 participants. Ahmed, a British-Pakistani with a lifelong passion for car racing, put his skills to the test and impressively secured the fourth position in the competition.
The elated sportsman shared the news on his Instagram and wrote: “P9-P4 and lot of points, hope you guys enjoyed the race”.
“I am very happy with the result and the efforts put in by my team Cape Motorsports, especially as this is their first year in this series. I picked up a lot of points and was pleased to finish ahead of the championship leader. There were some issues in the first 3-5 minutes but I was able to overcome these and there was no looking back,” Ahmed was quoted as saying by local media after results were announced. He said it was an honour for him to fly the Pakistani flag on his car.
