“It was my first international win it felt great to be able to compete and stand on the podium. More important than the win, driving the races back to back , the wheel to wheel action until the chequered flag dropped was fun too . I over took 2 cars just before the finish line. So i am looking forward to a lot more racing abroad” commented Sneha Sharma.

“It is a fun car but requies a lot of skill to drive, we also had some gear box issues with the car but the team (DV Motorsport) did a wonderful job to help us get 1 and 2 in both races” she added
