Indian racer Sneha Sharma will head to Malaysia this weekend to compete in the MSF Series at the Formula 1-grade Sepang International Circuit.

Sharma has been a regular in the Formula LGB category of JK Tyre National Racing Championship, but was forced to take a backseat in 2016 due to a knee injury.

A combination of rehab and physiotherapy has allowed her to regain her previous fitness levels and she made a strong comeback in the JK Tyre championship earlier this month.

Sharma, who also works as a pilot in India’s biggest airline company, will now race in the Saga Cup category of MSF (Malaysia Speed Festival) series between December 1-2.

She will drive for Malaysia-based Millennium Motorsport Asia team and will be the sole female representative on the grid.

The 28-year-old aims to use the Sepang experience to prepare for the selection process of the W Series.

Sharma was among the only two Indian drivers to have been included in the preliminary list of the upcoming all-female championship, which requires no sponsorship from drivers and instead offers them prize money totalling $1.5 million.

“I would be racing at the Sepang Circuit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - one of the most technical tracks in the world and I am looking forward to it,” Sharma told Motorsport.com India.

“This should help me get international exposure before going for the W Series second selection stage in Melk, Austria this January.

“Being the only Indian women to be driving in this series and representing the Indian flag, it is going to be a moment of honor.”
