They’re bold. They’re fearless. And they’re tearing up tracks all over Palestine.

The Speed Sisters are the first all-female race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene.

The award winning documentary Speed Sisters takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could.
