This might be the highest-resolution footage of open-wheeled racing anywhere on the Internet.

It's a clip from the movie 'Super Speedway,' covering the 1996 season of Newman/Haas racing in CART, the first year of the split that left America's best racecars unable to race on America's best oval for the Indy 500.


Shot and premiering on IMAX, the documentary footage looks unbelievably amazing. Here Paul Newman narrates as Michael Andretti tests his Lola. Dire Straits plays in the background, perfection is approached.
