Anwar, widely known as Avik Anwar is one of the top racers in his country, Bangladesh. Recently, he won the NGK Pro Car Championship in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. His first racing in Malaysia was back in 2019 with MCS and Sepang 1000KM Endurance Race (S1K).

He commented, “It was a great race, the race was fantastic. I’m still off the pace as I did only 9 laps with the car before the race. My car has a gearbox issue and it is quite challenging. I need to prepare myself better for the upcoming rounds.”
