Sneha Sharma impresses in F4 SEA Championship
Buriram (Thailand): Indian racer Sneha Sharma jumped into the lead in the ladies' category after Round 3 of the Formula 4 South East Asia Championship at the Chang international Circuit here.
Sneha won the leading trophy in each of the 4 races to grab the Overall Cup for women in the Thailand round held last weekend.
The 28-year-old, who is also an airline captain by profession, raced in a Formula 4 Race car for the first time and was up for the challenge. She took part in all four races in the championship and clocked a best time of 1:46:6 for a top eight finish in overall category, making her the current leader of her class in the championship. This round of F4 SEA Championship ran alongside the Formula 3 Asia and the Blancpain GT Series.
Sneha pointed out that a micro-chip in the car analysed her driving all the way to her turning technique, her braking and her top speed which helped her become better with each race. "The data analysis by the engineers and driver coach was amazing. It helped me stay with the pack and put up a great fight," she explained. The 4th round of the championship is scheduled for June 21, again in Thailand. In all, there will be seven more rounds through Asia, including two in India in July.
