Overview

Super Speedway

This IMAX film about open-wheel racing, narrated by Paul Newman, comes to DVD with a pair of images. The widescreen anamorphic transfer provides a picture with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame transfer. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, and a second English soundtrack has been recorded in DTS 5.1. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette that explains some of the technical problems IMAX film presents and previously unreleased racing footage. This is an excellent disc for car or IMAX enthusiasts.
