From Amazon.co.uk

One of the best directors of IMAX films, Stephen Low (Titanica) has always been a race fan. After obtaining permission from CART, a governing body of Indy car racing and Newman/Haas racing (a Championship team co-owned by Paul Newman), Low found his stars for Super Speedway: the racing Andrettis, father Mario and son Michael. Mounting cameras fore and aft on the Andrettis' cars, IMAX offers a better vantage point than an ESPN camera, at a superior grade of clarity. Add to that the excellent sound and you can "feel" the bumps on the asphalt as the cars zoom in and out of corners. The large format can turn a pit stop into a dramatic 12 seconds as we see the driver's eyes dart away from his cockpit for a few brief seconds. We watch Michael Andretti on oval tracks and exciting road courses going over hills and sharp turns. There's even a spin--probably staged--from an angle we've never seen before.

Although true race conditions were impossible (the camera is just too bulky), Low sneakily edits his film to stretch the imagination. On race day, several Indy cars drove alongside the camera car hours before the main event, passing and drafting each other with crowds whizzing past them. When edited with footage of the race, it feels like the real thing. Low takes a few off-beat choices in setting up his story. The first image is the biggest chicken you've ever seen. The last shot is a 1950s car (lovingly restored during the film) racing through perfect golden foliage on an autumn day. It gives his movie of modern technology a wonderful sense of nostalgia. --Doug Thomas, Amazon.com

...if you wanna whizz round an oval track with members of the Andretti family this is your choice! Wanna know what goes into making an Indy Car and to see the restoration of an ex-race car of Mario`s? Watch the documentary and see how they filmed it too!
This is a film for any race fan, especially those interested in "Formula" types. Oh...and turn the bass up LOUD!

Had the DVD for years but now director Stephen Low's high definition Imax project is on Bluray. Just breathtaking material and a must for all motor racing fans. Commentary by Paul Newman and featuring Mario Andretti.

Hey,

This IMAX film is really fantastic if you like motorsport or cars!!!
The HD picture image is really crystal clear, It could not be better than this.
Sometimes it feels like your really inside the car and joining the race.
The sound is also spectaculair, Esspecially when you have a surround set.
The Indy cars engines really go full throttle true all your speakers.
If you like racecar sounds, ...Than you really get goosebumps sometimes, Hihi.

You see Mario & Michael Andretti testing new developed Indy cars (from that period)
And also how they build a car like this, From the drawings to the final car.
Also you see how they rebuild a classic racecar.

So this is really a must have to show of your HD tv and your HD sound system.
