Capt Sneha Sharma Pilot IndiGo Airlines

Capt Sneha Sharma, a 26 Years Young Pilot, looks completely unperturbed by the fact that she is the only girl in the formula 4 category of the J K  Tyre  Racing Championship  Buddha International Circuit this year. In fact, she has made it a point to race only with her male counterparts.


For this Bombay based  Indigo Pilot Youth Icon, racing is not an easy job.
Capt Sneha Sharma has traveled with books on her racing assignments, fought with her parents, told numerous Lies and Jumped her Walls many a times to pursue her all Passions.


I have jumped walls, made up stories at home to be able to race Initially.
I carried a lot of books on the track, you also have to put extra efforts on fitness being a girl. I wasn’t allowed to go to a race once and lost some points in the championship,” recalls Capt Sneha Sharma.

Apart from racing, Capt Sneha Sharma has some uncommon traits vis-a-vis her competitors: Capt Sneha Sharma is a Full- Time Pilot with IndiGo Airlines. Managing Passion and Profession is not an easy job, and she agrees.


Capt Sneha Sharma is Flying with IndiGo Airlines as a Pilot, so that is her Profession. While racing is her Passion which now she take Professionally as well. She has to  juggle it. But its not easy as the season is set up in such a way that it has 6 races in a month, so She has  to plan her offs in such way that she can attend them, therefore, she don’t get enough time to practice like others.


Capt Sneha Sharma  has often lost half of the season due to her Flying career and almost had a two-year gap in her racing career at one point.Life has been a little harsh on her but she opines not getting the respect of her competitors has been the biggest low.

“I face more music on the track. A lot of drivers don’t like to lose to a female counterpart.
There are quite a few incidents where they have passed me comments like you don’t know how to drive, just go back you are wasting your money. I wouldn’t take any names though, but very good drivers were among them,” says Sneha who finished at the 2nd position in the Formula Junior racing series last year in an all male category.

Finding sponsors for the race has also been a struggle for the Passionate Pilot cum Driver Girl. 
It’s quite a few times that they(sponsors) won’t come forward because the country is usually occupied with cricket. But I don’t take these issues by heart, I would like to keep driving. I have other goals on my mind like inspecting the track conditions, my race strategy. I would like to focus on these things,” she adds.But companies like JK tyres and Indigo have come forward to support me after seeing my performance.  
Even after fighting tough circumstances, she hasn’t given up and instead has also worked part time to reduce the cost incurred on her driving. She is eyeing the  internationally circuit ,to fulfill her goal of representing the Indian flag.
“It’s been a long way, I started with local karting at the age of 16, and have done it all by myself since then"

 Initial races were conducted by private companies. I was then approached by a national championship team, to compete in the national karting championship.I started young and I used to get podium finishes. I also used to do part-time work with the team in a different role so they can subsidise my cost of racing. Right now my main focus is formula cars, that is where I want to excel in. By next year I would like to secure more and more podiums on the National circuit,” reveals Capt Sneha Sharma.    
After the initial resistance, her family has stood behind her like a rock in tough situations. Initially they were not happy considering the fact that racing is not a conventional sport for a girl. They also thought that it would affect my studies. But with time they came to accept the sport and now they support me where they can.


On being asked among the two – Profession and Passion – which is much trickier, she admits,  Flying the Airbus A320 and driving at the speed of 260 Kmph are both very serious  Professions.   Being an Airline Pilot we ensure to fly the machine within it's safe limits, whereas in Formula Racing you are constantly pushing the car to it's limits,and sometimes even beyond it's limits too !
