Jezebel: Female Palestinian Race Car Drivers Documented in Speed Sisters Film
by Dodai Stewart
In January, we read about a woman named Noor Daoud — born in Texas, former member of the Olympic swim team, former player on the Palestinian national soccer team — currently racing cars in Formula 3.
Daoud and her cohorts formed a group called the Speed Sisters, possibly the first all-female racing team in the Middle East. At the time, we heard a film about the group was “reportedly in the works.” Well, the movie is definitely in progress, although the filmmaker — a woman named Amber Fares — is in desperate need of funding.
