Avik Anwar, the first Bangladeshi international motorsports winner and Bangladesh Rallycross champion, has won three races so far in the NGK Pro Car Championship in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

He won this prestigious race after competing with formula racers from different countries of the world including Scotland, New Zealand, Belgium, Mexico, Ireland, United Arab Emirates, India, Switzerland, Austria, United Kingdom and France.

After winning the highly competitive race, Avik released a video on his official Facebook page for his fans, expressing his happiness and gratitude.

“Those who said I can't, those who said it is not possible, those who have always looked down on Bangladeshis, today's victory is for them! You should always dream big and no matter how hard it gets to achieve the dream, Insha'Allah one day the dream will turn into a successful reality,” Avik wrote on his Facebook.

“History created once again, first Bangladeshi to race and get Pole position at Qualifying at Yas Marina Formula 1 circuit! It wasn't easy,” Avik earlier confirmed his victory on a separate Facebook post.

He also thanked his sponsors.
