GLENN SETON FORD CREDIT 'REPLICAR' JOINS RADISICH FALCON AS FORD GEARS UP FOR SUPERCAR EVENT

Glenn Seton, one of the most popular and successful drivers in the Aussie V8 Super car Series, has had his 'Ford Credit' Falcon immortalised by Ford New Zealand.


Glenn's becomes only the second car to be replicated this season by Ford New Zealand, and follows the success and popularity associated with the look-alike Paul Radisich Falcon.

"Paul's Falcon has been creating quite a stir on its current national tour," said Ford New Zealand Motorsport Manager, Lisa Franklin.

"It has helped to raise the profile of the Aussie V8 Super car series, and also promote the 'Win an XR8 Competition' that we are running on TV One during Ford's live coverage of the V8 Super car racing on Sunday afternoons."


The replicars are a visible way that Ford has generated interest in their teams and drivers in the current series, and also increase awareness about the Pukekohe round of the event, which is happening November 9 –11.

"Glenn has become a real icon on the Super car stage, and it is appropriate in the lead up to the inaugural Super car Series event at Pukekohe that we are recognizing one of the sports real superstars," said Ms. Franklin.

"We are confident that Glenn will prove to be one of the drivers gunning for glory in November."

"It is also important to have this visibility through the replicars, as it shows that Ford is once again a serious contender in the Super car series."

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
