On a race track dominated by men, Rosita Singh bucks the trend.

The 36-year-old racer was recognised with five awards by the Fiji Motorsports Association on Saturday, including the coveted 2018 Pacific Energy Series winner trophy.

Singh’s journey on the race track started in 2017 when she joined the Fiji Toyota Car Club.

Prior to that, she remembers being a pas¬sion-infused spectator at race events in Pacific Harbour.

Her husband, who also competes, encour¬aged her take up the sport and she has never looked back since.

Within two years, the Sila Central High School teacher has progressed to one of the top racers in the country – female or other¬wise.

Her personal best on the quartermile track stands at 14.6 seconds in her 3.5 cylinder Toyota Crown. But she has no plans to stop there.

Singh said her biggest challenge in the sport

“For a lady, it’s always difficult to enter a field dominated by men and that’s this achievement means so much to me,” Singh said.

“I want to encourage other women to take up racing because it has been a very fulfilling personal experience for me.”

Fiji Motorsports president Raizal Haniff congratulated Singh for her achievements.

“She has been a consistent performer throughout the year and we are proud of her,” he said.
