EZY Racing crowned champions for 2010

Sri Lanka’s only computer manufacturer EZY, who entered the racing arena in 2009 by forming EZY Racing as their motor racing arm, stamped its dominance in the rally racing arena when they swept away 20 of the 70 awards that were on offer at the annual Rally Awards.and were awarded the Winner of the Team Championship for 2010 rally racing.

Team Bullion Exchange, the racing team of the prestigious jewellery maker, who finished as the runner up for the team championship, was represented by the Wahab family comprising racing stalwart Cassim Wahab co driven by Nassar Sakkaf and his son Javed Wahab co driven by his brother Ishraq Wahab.

The 2010 Rally Awards, were held at “The Grid” restaurant which is situated adjacent to the Speed Drome pro kart center in Battaramulla.

EZY Racing who were represented by 2009 Rally Champion Rizvi Farouk co driven by Jamal Hussain and the newly crowned champion Shafraz Junaid co driven by Shafraz Hamzadeen won 66% of the rallies that were held in 2010, with Rally Kantale resulting in a 1,2 finish for the first time for the team.

The team was ably supported by its mechanical partners Senok and Auto Force who were later on awarded the best support team in rally racing for their commendable efforts in ensuring that the EZY Racing cars were always in peak condition for a rally winning performance.

Shafraz Junaid, who has been a dominant figure in the motor cycling arena with many records under his belt was jubilant in celebrating his first ever championship win in motor car racing. “It is definitely a dream come true. Rally racing has always been my passion. I believe my style of driving suits rally racing the best. I always wanted to be competitive in rallying, but to be crowned the champion is truly a feeling that is special.” said Junaid at the awards night.

Commenting on his teams achievements, Shafraz Hamzadeen, Team Principal/ CEO of EZY Racing said “this is indeed the result of some very hard work. When Rizvi won the 2009 drivers championship, we knew we were good enough to repeat it again if we worked hard. We strengthened our cars, developed more stamina in our drivers and worked very hard in our partnerships, especially with our mechanical partners to get the right car and right support. Unlike in circuit racing, to be consistent in rally racing you need strong resources and a strong support crew. The fact that we had the best support team was evident from the recognition we received.”.

EZY Racing’s mechanical partner Auto Force, who prepares most racing cars as well as road running cars to perfection, was awarded the Best Rally Backup Team.
