The Kid Should See This

Go-Kart Racing With the Emirati Speed Sisters

As the first female pro go-kart drivers in the UAE, sisters Amna and Hamda Al Qubaisi are breaking barriers, busting myths and beating the boys. Inspired by their father—pro racer Khaled Al Qubaisi—the girls decided to get behind the wheel themselves. Now, at 17 and 15 years old respectively, they’re making history and winning championships.

Meet these pioneering teens from the United Arab Emirates in this episode of Great Big Story: Go-Kart Racing With the Emirati Speed Sisters.

Follow this with A Formula One Pit Stop Explained, A (Football) League of Their Own, Jetman Yves Rossy flies over Dubai, and Rachel Atherton’s downhill mountain biking victory at Vallnord.
