Enaam Ahmed’s Historic Fourth-Place Finish In Alabama Grand Prix

British-Pakistani racer Enaam Ahmed secures the highest-ever position for a Pakistani driver in international racing, finishing fourth in the Alabama Grand Prix.

Enaam Ahmed, a young British-Pakistani motorsport talent, secured a fourth-place finish at the Alabama Grand Prix, marking the best ever finish for a Pakistani driver in an international Grand Prix.

The race took place at the Barber Motorsports Park, a premier motor racing series venue in the U.S., and saw 18 of the world’s top drivers in competition.

This achievement came in Ahmed’s second appearance in the Firestone IndyNXT Championship, the final stepping stone before entering Indy cars. Despite an intense race, Ahmed drove with determination and strategy, securing his position in the top five.

“I’m thrilled with this outcome and the dedication shown by my team, Cape Motorsports, particularly given it’s their debut year in this series. Despite initial issues in the first few minutes, we managed to overcome them and from then on, the focus was only on moving forward,” said an excited Ahmed after the results were announced.

For Ahmed, who proudly displays the Pakistani flag on his car, this achievement is more than personal success. “It’s an honour for me to represent Pakistan in this way,” he added.

Starting from ninth in a line-up of 18 drivers, Ahmed showcased his skill and strategy to move up to sixth place after a crash led to the race being restarted. By the final lap, he managed to secure the fourth position, marking a milestone in Pakistani motorsport history.

Ahmed’s racing career has been nothing short of impressive. As a British Formula 3 Champion, he’s the first Pakistani to win a high-level Formula Championship. During this championship, he even shattered Ayrton Senna’s record by securing 13 victories in a single season.

At just 23, Ahmed is making waves on the global motorsport scene, tackling treacherous tracks at an average speed of 200 miles per hour. His car proudly bears both British and Pakistani flags, signifying his dual heritage.

Having won numerous championships and set records since he was 14, Ahmed has emerged as the most successful driver of Pakistani heritage in motorsport history.

Ahmed’s thrilling journey continues, with his next race slated for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course on May 13.
