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. Interested? Donate here.

Disclosure: After reading and writing about this project, I decided to contribute, financially, to the film's production.
