THANK YOU! Thanks to 430+ backers, we met and passed our goal of $60k to finish the edit! Inspired by the surge made by our many supporters, father & son team Ben and Rob Edwards of Spyder have given an additional $25k to our campaign to fund further work on the film!

The support of our many backers inspired our new friends, who have been watching our campaign. As makers of historic re-recreations of Porsche 550 Spyders, Ben and Rob have a passion for racing “back in the day” when cars were cars, and drivers were drivers. They’ve seen a special kind of drive in the Speed Sisters, and in the collective effort of our film team and campaign backers, that reminded them of this spirit.

Thank you to Ben and Rob! We can’t wait to meet you and to take a spin in those cars!

Thank you to Stephanie Economu of gearhead girls racing for making this introduction, and so many others.

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and encouragement that we’ve received from hundreds around the world! Backers have stepped forward to support the film from Palestine, France, Canada, United States, UAE, Switzerland, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Finland, Bahrain, Great Britain, Lebanon, Ireland, Japan, Denmark, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Jordan, Luxembourg, Egypt, Norway, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, and Cape Verde. We are so grateful! We are inspired and energized. Thank you.

Special thanks to gearhead girls racing for helping us find our line!
