  • Imraz Fayroze: A Habitual Winner and A Rising Star in Motorsports

    Imraz Fayroze has established himself as an accomplished player within the Sri Lankan motorsports community through consistent victories in the SL-A Mini 7 Class. At the age of 22, he made his first major achievement in his sporting journey by securing a significant win that marked a major milestone. Despite being a relative newcomer to the game, Imraz possesses the qualities and skills of a seasoned competitor. His dedication is focused on one goal – winning!

    Since his breakthrough win in 2017, Imraz has continuously dominated the competition, securing victory year after year, solidifying his position as a formidable force in motorsports. His remarkable winning streak culminated in a memorable triumph at the end of last year's season, which we reported at the time. As evident in the accompanying graphic, Imraz has remained unshakable for five consecutive years, showcasing his major victories each year. The absence of any entries in 2020 can be attributed to the unfortunate pandemic, which led to the cancellation of numerous outdoor events.

    Imraz's record of accomplishments during this relatively short time is undeniably impressive, and the most exciting part is that he has a promising future ahead, with ample time to achieve even more victories. We, at St. Anne's College, wish him all the best in his upcoming games in this year and beyond.
