"La Carrera Panamericana" is a 1992 video of the Carrera Panamericana automobile race in Mexico. The film included a soundtrack entirely of music by the band Pink Floyd, as the band's guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and manager Steve O'Rourke competed in the race in 1991.During the course of the race Gilmour crashed, and while he was unharmed, O'Rourke (his map-reader and Pink Floyd's manager) suffered a broken leg. Mason finished eighth overall with his co-pilot, English auto racer Valentine Lindsay.

The music is a combination of previously released Floyd material (re-edited into a soundtrack) and material composed for the video. The tracks composed for the video are the first studio recordings made after Richard Wright re-joined the band in 1988. The new studio recordings were produced by Gilmour. The songs "Pan Am Shuffle" and "Carrera Slow Blues" are notable as the first tracks co-written by Wright since 1975's "Wish You Were Here", as well as the first co-written by Mason since 1973's "The Dark Side of the Moon".

A soundtrack album was not released, but the tracks are available on the "A Tree Full Of Secrets" RoIO.
