Pakistan Outpaces India in Dubai 12-Hour Endurance Karting Race, Thanks to Enaam Ahmed

In an unprecedented achievement for Pakistan, karting champion Enaam Ahmed led the national team to a historic top 4 finish at the Nations Cup during the Dubai 12-Hour Endurance Karting Race. This victory was not just a win for the team, but a resounding triumph over their arch-rivals, India, with an impressive 9-lap lead.

Enaam Ahmed, the first British Formula 3 Champion and the only FIA World and European Karting champion from Pakistan, was the driving force behind this extraordinary performance. He outpaced over thirty competitors on the demanding circuit, making history for Pakistan in the world of karting.

Ahmed’s strategic selection of the team played a crucial role in this achievement. He chose the “two most talented drivers from Pakistan” — Maz Chughtai and Shamiq Saeed — to form Team Pakistan. Chughtai, a multiple-karting champion in Dubai, and Saeed, handpicked by Ahmed from Karachi, proved their mettle on the track. Ahmed praised Saeed as the only driver from Pakistan, other than Uzair Magsi, who possesses natural speed and immense talent

In the qualifying round, Team Pakistan secured 2nd place in the Nations Cup and 4th overall against 30 of the world’s best endurance teams. This positioned them at the forefront of the field, setting the stage for their historic performance.

Despite an unlucky puncture that dropped them to 30th place, Team Pakistan showcased their dominance on the track with an impressive 9-lap lead over India. Without this setback, they would have surely finished on the podium.

Ahmed expressed his pride in leading Team Pakistan to such an unprecedented success. “It’s an honour to represent Pakistan and achieve this milestone alongside my teammates. We worked tirelessly to make our country proud, and to also secure a commanding victory over India adds an extra layer of satisfaction to our accomplishment,” he said.

The Dubai 12-Hour Endurance Karting Race is known for its challenging conditions and intense competition, making Team Pakistan’s achievement even more commendable. Their triumph serves as a testament to the talent and dedication within Pakistan’s motorsports community and highlights the country’s potential on the global stage.

This victory not only underscores Pakistan’s prowess in motorsports but also opens a new chapter whereby a new generation of drivers will be inspired. As the only man who has the reputation and respect in global motorsports racing many current F1 drivers, Ahmed is well-positioned to lead the next generation of Pakistani drivers into circuit racing.

Enaam Ahmed’s leadership and the exceptional performance of Team Pakistan have set a new benchmark in the world of karting. This historic achievement has not only made the nation proud but has also paved the way for future generations of Pakistani drivers to aspire and achieve greatness in the global arena of motorsports.
