Air racing is the world’s fastest and most dangerous motor sport. The new feature documentary "Air Racer: Chasing the Dream" follows inventor and race pilot Jon Sharp and his wife Patricia over a six-year journey to create the world’s most advanced racing airplane, the Nemesis NXT. They put everything on the line, including Jon’s life, to realize a dream that's much larger than just winning a race… they intend to change air racing forever by offering their revolutionary design to other pilots.
With the help of a close-knit team of volunteers, Jon and Patricia design, build, test, and race their cutting-edge aircraft. As they race their creation against some of the best pilots in the world, they almost lose everything during a crash landing in front of fans and competitors. Jon and Patricia are faced with the possibility of failure after years of total commitment to their project. They must find a way to carry on and keep their dream alive if they hope to realize the true potential of what they have created. In the end, the reality of their achievement reaches so far beyond anyone’s expectations that air racing will never be the same again.
What People Are Saying
"'Air Racer' is a documentary about the elite world of air racing. The movie profiles a husband and wife team that try to create the most advanced, purpose-built air racing airplane ever built. The result is an exciting look at the competitive, but rarely seen world of air racing."
-Jason Paur, WIRED.com
"Unbelievable. Breathtaking. And above all… REAL. This is a movie about air racing that looks like it can hit the holy grail of appealing to the general public and also be something we can all get behind."
"'Air Racer' is a skillful blending of the personal and technical aspects of air racing that spectators never get to see. It’s all there... The next best thing to being at the Reno Air Races. Highly recommended."
-Jack Cox, Sportsman Pilot magazine
