THE WRENCH OFF

What better way to celebrate International Women’s Day, than with a screening of the latest motorcycle-focused documentary short? Writes Leonie Watkins. Petrolettes: The Wrench-Off, is a film made by Petrolettes founder, Irene Kotnik and chronicles a Europewide motorcycle customising competition – borne of a desire to showcase not only the capabilities and skill of female custom builders, but equally the passion and ambition inside each of these women – incorporating their own expertise and particular style to fabricate a beautifully designed, functioning, race-ready motorcycle. The final stage would be a showdown between the finished bikes in the form of a sprint race. And earned crowning glory for the winner.
