Sharina Ramlle is just a normal, hardworking person like you and me, swimming against the stream of life to help create a better world for herself and her family. The 36-year-old housewife and mother of three spends most of her time focusing on her children ensuring that they get the best care and education.

While the above might indicate that Sharina’s family is her sole focus, one would be surprised to learn she is a strong and aggressive licensed racing driver. Yes, Sharina always had an eye for motorsport. This interest fuelled her to part in small amateur karting events since 2014.

Normally, to move further up in the motorsport chain one would require a huge investment, but with the help of the Malaysia Speed Festival (MSF) – which focuses of keeping racing affordable, while entertaining and safe at the same time – Sharina managed to leap into the saloon car racing scene.

Powered by a race-spec turbocharged Toyota Starlet, Sharina currently races against her opponents in MSF’s Street Tuned Limited category. With her children and husband as her inspiration, Sharina races in all championship rounds, fine tuning her race craft further and further.

Her story has caught the attention of many, and with this PETRONAS and MSF has, for the very first time, teamed up to help highlight Sharina and more like her. The three-part video series featuring these individuals will be released over the next two weeks starting from today, leading up to the MSF Finale event happening on December 2 and 3 at the Sepang International Circuit.

The last race of the 2017 season will feature an array of motorsport activities encompassing MSF Racing Series, where up to 177 cars race door-to-door in exciting 5-lap races. For the first time, there will be a new MSF Superbikes category for superbikes taking to the track, while the new MSF Drift Gonzo will feature a target-style drifting competition, the first in Malaysia.

Also taking place is MSF MegaLAP, a Time Attack competition showcasing some of the quickest single-lap cars in the country, as well as the Mcclubz Car Show with 150 cars. Grandstand access is free for all, and there will be a free mini waterpark for all kids to enjoy, supported by food trucks and stalls. As for Paddock access, tickets will retail at RM10 on Saturday and RM20 on Sunday.
