Trailer released for Scott Dixon documentary

Ahead of competing in the Indianapolis 500 this weekend, Scott Dixon has released a teaser trailer for the documentary about his life.

Born Racer: The Scott Dixon Story is an all-access, behind-the-scenes look at Dixon's success and dedication to his sport.

Dixon says he considers the film a huge milestone and is looking forward to releasing the trailer at the Indy500.

"It's strange seeing yourself on the big screen but also rather exciting. I hope it will five people a real insight not only in to the cars and the driver but the entire racing community and the huge amount of work that goes into making this all happen," he says.

The film will also look into the lives of the Chip Ganazzi Racing team, the people passionate about racing and why some people are so compelled to be involved in such a dangerous sport that risks their lives.

This year is the 102nd Indianapolis 500, a series which Dixon and his team have won four times.

The film will be released into New Zealand cinemas in September.
