Born Racer is a stunning, cinematic documentary that takes viewers deep inside the world of INDYCAR with unprecedented access to New Zealand born five-time INDYCAR series champion Scott Dixon, his family, and his team at Chip Ganassi Racing.

It poses a simple question, what does it really take to keep winning in the world's most dangerous motor sport? The question may be simple, but the answer is most definitely not.

Central to the experience is the disarmingly portrait of the 'Iceman' himself, one of the world's most respected, yet enigmatic, athletes. Watching the film, we're literally in the cockpit with Scott as he faces his 20th all-consuming season; we get to experience first-hand what sets this man apart from the rest of us, and even from those closest to his heart.

Born Racer: The Scott Dixon Story includes an action-packed, yet highly intimate & intense blend of close observational filming plus never seen before spectacular, cutting edge racing footage exploring exactly what it takes to compete in the world’s fastest and most challenging racing series.
