Four-time IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon will be the subject of a documentary “Born Racer,” scheduled for release later this year. The production team behind the film unveiled a teaser trailer today at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
The 2008 Indianapolis 500 champion, who was on hand for the release of he video trailer along with longtime car owner Chip Ganassi, ranks fourth in all-time Indy car victories with 41 — one behind third-place Michael Andretti. The 37-year-old New Zealander will start Sunday’s Indy 500 from the outside of Row 3.
“‘Born Racer’ is a big milestone for me personally, so I couldn’t think of a better place to launch the teaser trailer than the Indianapolis 500,” Dixon said. “It’s strange seeing yourself on the big screen, but also rather exciting. I hope it will give people a real insight, not only into the cars and the drivers, but the entire racing community and the huge amount of work that goes into making this all happen.”
Co-produced by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group and GFC Films, “Born Racer” was filmed last year with an all-access lens, following Dixon and the Chip Ganassi Racing team to Verizon IndyCar Series races and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It also delved into the personal lives of the Dixon family.
The film was directed by Bryn Evans and produced by Matthew Metcalfe and Fraser Brown. Metcalfe produced the popular “McLaren” documentary that premiered last year.
