She was shortlisted for the 2015 Volkswagen Vento Cup and The Toyota Etios Cup in India. Sneha Sharma was given the title of India's fastest female Racer after securing top 5 position in the Mercedes young star driver program. Because of not having a sponsor or a strong economic background, the teachers who taught her about basics of braking and cornering were simple mechanics and Sneha has performed various jobs at the race track to subsidise her racing fee. As of today Sneha receives sponsorship for her racing career from JK tyres and Indigo airlines. She has also been offered racing seats in Germany and Malaysia. Currently, in various categories, Sneha has won over all, 6 race victories and 14 runner up positions
