Avik Anwar, the first Bangladeshi to win a race in the Volkswagen Ameo Cup Class, in India last year, sponsors food items, including Iftar and rice, to 75 less privileged families each day, and will do so until the end of Ramadan.
A regular participant from Bangladesh in the international motorsports event, Avik said his team has donated to 55 families at Bandar in Narayanganj, and 25 food donations to the blind.
“Every food donation will last five-seven days. The Iftar donations have been made throughout Dhaka for 75 people daily,” said the 33-year old racer, who is director of a Car House Ltd in the capital.
“There are six of us automotive racing drivers. All have the capability to help others. I’m not trying to show off but just want to inspire others.”

National cricketer Tamim Iqbal, a good friend of Avik, has been donating to many vulnerable families, including former and current athletes, for quite some time.
Avik admitted his friend’s initiatives inspired him a little bit.
Avik became the first Bangladeshi to secure third place in a Malaysian race circuit when he bagged bronze medal in Race 2 of round four of the 2019 Malaysia Championship series at Sepang International Circuit, a Formula 1 track.
