Born Racer: The Scott Dixon Story

Te Awamutu Courier - - Entertainment -

Very stir­ring, hair­rais­ing, yet sad in parts, also en­gag­ing.

For non-mo­tor­sport fans, Dixon’s achieve­ments make hime the sec­ond most suc­cess­ful IndyCar driver of all time and by a mile New Zealand’s most suc­cess­ful driver ever.

He’s won Sports­man of the Year at the Hal­berg Awards twice — tied with Richie McCaw — and will be up again for the award early next year.

Scott Dixon is one of the most suc­cess­ful New Zealan­ders ever.

Born Racer is the cel­e­bra­tion of our lo­cal hero, and a chance for Scott to tell his story — how he’s got to where he has, from grow­ing up in South Auck­land, his par­ents risk­ing ev­ery­thing fi­nan­cially when Scott was kart rac­ing.

It goes be­hind the scenes to Scott’s close fam­ily unit, in­clud­ing his wife Emma and the in­cred­i­ble in­flu­ence she’s had as a pro­fes­sional longdis­tance run­ner.

It will ap­peal to much more than mo­tor-rac­ing fans. The film is an in­spi­ra­tion to young New Zealan­ders, to fam­i­lies and moth­ers.
