Editors Note
Note Originally filmed in the IMAX format and exhibited in IMAX theatres throughout the world, this is a hang-on-to-your-seat thrill ride, letting you truly experience what it feels like to be behind the wheel of an Indy race car. Movie star and race car aficionado Paul Newman narrates this adrenaline-pumping, almost interactive video which is filmed from the subjectivity of the race car driver. In addition, race car superstar Michael Andretti lets the cameras follow him and his infamous father Mario as they create a brand new type of car.

Review "Super Speedway" is a terrific IMAX movie, capturing the thrills and behind-the-scenes details of the sport. This new edition is an improvement on an already marvelous first edition, providing even more advanced audio and video quality. Both a great film and truly superb home theater demo material in terms of both video and especially audio, "Super Speedway" is simply a must-see.

Review The IMAX picture has a window-like clarity (without the dead bugs and oil splatters one would normally get driving over 200 MPH on a racetrack) and the sound is as pure and crisp as it is loud and directional. Imagine your viewing room turning into the Indianapolis 500. Now, imagine how much trouble you'll get into, with people who just don't understand, when you raise the volume on your amplifier.
