Storyline

We follow the Newman-Haas (Andretti) racing team through the process of building, testing, and racing for a season. This includes extensive race speed on-track footage, including some pre-race footage with a full squad of cars. From time to time, we check in with a small shop building/restoring one of the first roadsters Mario Andretti raced; the finale includes him taking it for a spin. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Geat DVD of an IMAX film.
21 August 2002 | by TxMikeSee all my reviews

I've never had the pleasure of being in the cockpit of an Indy racer circling the track near top speed. However, when I pop in this DVD, crank up the surround sound, and sit about 6 feet from my high-definition widescreen TV, it's damned close to being there! All this is balanced with a side story of restoring one of Andretti's original Indy racers, compete with his test driving it again after all those years. The background music is pleasant, and the picture is just reference quality. A nice DVD to own, to watch now and again, and to demo your surround sound system!
