Pakistan may not be the first country that comes to mind when you think of motorsports, but that may soon change thanks to the efforts of Sahibzada Sultan Muhammad Ali, aka Sahibzada Sultan in the motorsport’s fraternity of Pakistan. A renowned race car driver and enthusiast, he has been instrumental in promoting and developing motorsports in the country.
Sahibzada Sultan Motorsports Career
A man of many talents that does not shy away from new challenges, Sahibzada Sultan (@sultanmali11) always had his sights set on promoting Pakistan at an international level. This desire and dream to promote the soft image of Pakistan also lead Sahibzada Sultan to achieve major feats outside of the border. He has been the only Pakistani off-road racer to participate internationally twice at UAE Baja Off-road Championship, securing 2nd position in 2019.
Making his debut in 2015 at Pakistan’s largest off-road race ‘The Cholistan 500,’ Sahibzada Sultan has since shown his mastery of off-road racing skills time and again at all the major motorsport events in Pakistan as well as abroad. Moreover, Sahibzada Sultan M. Ali has exerted significant influence on the government to encourage the development of racing as a sport.
Sahibzada Sultan’s Contributions
Several young individuals in Pakistan have started racing in motorsports as a result of Sahibzada Sultan’s infectious love for them. His efforts have also contributed to this transformation, transforming the nation’s view of racing from a risky and expensive hobby to a respectable activity that can be practiced professionally.
So, it is impossible to overestimate Sahibzada Sultan M. Ali’s contribution to the growth of racing in Pakistan. Young motorsports lovers now have a place to explore their passion thanks to his efforts, which have been crucial in increasing the sport’s visibility across the nation. He is one of the people that changed racing in Pakistan and a great visionary.
Mastering the race-craft alone is not enough to promote the sport if there is no awareness and promotion. Off-road racing, being a niche sport in Pakistan, oftentimes does not get the exposure it deserves. This is exactly the reason why Sahibzada Sultan also simultaneously laid the foundation of Pakistan’s first motorsports magazine in Urdu called the ‘Horse Power Magazine.’ Besides featuring details and coverage of off-road racing in Pakistan as well as abroad, the magazine is also dedicated to generating awareness of driving rules and safety among the masses.
In addition to organizing events, Sahibzada Sultan Muhammad Ali has also been lobbying the government to recognize motorsports as a legal sport and provide the necessary support for its development. His efforts have resulted in many ways. He is also working on the development of a motorsports park in Pakistan, exploring different venues for various motorsports events in the country.
Sultan’s Mission Statement
According to Sahibzada Sultan, motorsports is an exhilarating and dynamic sport that demands skill, precision, and courage. It is enjoyed by millions of people of all ages and backgrounds around the world. The speed and adrenaline rush of racing is unmatched in any other sport, and the thrill of competing against other drivers adds an extra level of excitement. For spectators, the sights and sounds of motorsports events are truly unforgettable, making it a unique and memorable experience.
Moreover, motorsports require exceptional reflexes, hand-eye coordination, and mental focus, making it a sport that demands both physical and mental prowess. This level of skill and precision is also what makes motorsports such a compelling sport to watch.
Motorsports have the potential to drive economic growth and development in many regions. The infrastructure and support required for motorsports events can create jobs, attract investment, and boost tourism. Additionally, the sport has the potential to provide an opportunity for young people to pursue careers in engineering, mechanics, and other related fields.
Motorsports is a sport that demands not only skill, precision, and courage, but also a strong sportsman spirit. This is especially true in countries like Pakistan, where the sport is still in its early stages of development and faces numerous challenges.
Sahibzada Sultan M. Ali, the founder of Team Sultan, embodies the true spirit of sportsmanship. He has been instrumental in promoting and developing motorsports in Pakistan, despite facing numerous challenges along the way.
One of the key challenges that motorsports face in Pakistan is the lack of infrastructure and support from the government. This has made it difficult for young drivers to pursue their passion and for the sport to grow and develop. However, Sahibzada Sultan has not let these challenges deter him.
Instead, he has worked tirelessly to create opportunities for young drivers and to promote the sport in Pakistan. He has been actively involved in lobbying the government to provide the necessary support for the development of motorsports in the country.
Motorsports require not only physical skill but also mental strength and sportsman spirit. Drivers must possess the ability to handle the pressure of competition and maintain their composure in high-stress situations. Sahibzada Sultan M. Ali has demonstrated these qualities throughout his racing career and in his work to promote the sport in Pakistan.
