We are happy to share short profiles of Speed Sisters – past, present and even future. Our Indiegogo campaign is over, but you can still enjoy the profiles we created for it:
Known as “Queen of the Track” and “Sunnacher”, Suna was a true trailblazer as one of the first women to race in Palestine and to place in the top 10. She retired from racing at the end of the 2010 season. Suna was, and is, an inspiration to many, including us.
There is one word that best descibes Noor… that is BADASS. Born in Texas, she grew up in Jerusalem and has lived around the world. Noor speaks 3 languages, is a serious athlete and loves to drift and ride dirt bikes. Enough said.
Hadeel is a mechanical engineering student entering her third year at Birzeit University. She loves cars and it is her dream to race. She has been coming to the races to help inspect the cars before the race and to cheer the girls on. Hadeel just got her driving license (on her first try) and has joined the team! We are expecting big things from her!!
What can we say about Mona. She hangs out of cars racing at top speed. She cracks the best jokes. And she is the first to help you if you need it. She is the original Speed Sister. The veteran. Mona was “discovered” while racing boys in the streets of Ramallah and has never turned back since.
Betty Saadeh started racing in 2010. Both her father and her brother are car racers as well. She was the fastest women on the Palestinian circuit in 2011 and is now sponsored by Peugeot Palestine.
Marah Zahalka is from Jenin and grew up during some pretty tough times. She taught herself how to drive by watching her mom give driving lessons when she was 12. Now 20 years old, Marah knows her way around a track, and through the finish line.
