Classic Ferraris And Maserati In Full Attack!

Classic Ferraris And Maserati In Full Attack!

The Jim Clark Revival meeting took place at the weekend (28-30 April 2006) attracting some of the most historically significant Ferrari and Maserati race cars to the German Hockenheim race track to be seen as God intended – flat out and in full attack!

Testing themselves against the German circuit were drivers in the European Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge, a championship which, since 1999, has also been open to Maseratis. The event also featured a display of 10 Ferrari single-seaters from the past, which was coordinated by Maranello's F1 Clienti department.

This was the season curtain-raiser for the European series and it saw wins in grids A+B (single-seaters, sports-prototypes and GT cars fitted with drum brakes) for local driver Max Werner in race-1 in his 1955 Maserati 300 S and for another 300 S (1954,) out on track in the hands of British driver, David Franklin, in the second race.

As for group C (cars with disc brakes,) wins in the two races were split between the 1981 Ferrari 512 BB LM of Dutchman, John Bosch and the 1970 Ferrari 512 M of France's Michel Fertè.

The European series of the Shell Ferrari Historic Challenge will be back on track over the weekend of 4 June in Valencia, Spain.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
