The story of three women – a mother and her two daughters – with a serious need for speed is chronicled in the fast-paced new documentary by Michelle Bauer Carpenter, an associate professor of digital design in the College of Arts & Media (CAM).
Top speeds ranged between 195 to 197 mph.
Carpenter takes viewers into the lives of Laura Klock, Erika Cobb and Karlee Cobb, who in 2008 became the first mother-and-children trio in land-speed racing history to set records at the same time. The women fly across the barren Bonneville Salt Flats in western Utah on roaring motorcycles, clocking speeds approaching 200 mph. Thus, the name of Carpenter’s film, “Klocked: Women with Horsepower.”
The film will headline the ‘Adventure’ Reel at the Breckenridge Film Festival at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16. It will begin national PBS distribution on Oct. 16.
