BNT V8 SuperTourers Takes Pole Position on TicketPros

BNT V8 SuperTourers Takes Pole Position on TicketPros

The BNT V8 SuperTourers are revving up for the countdown to Season 2 with pole position on a major new NZ ticketing web site – www.ticketpros.co.nz – in advance of the Autocar-supported first round of the 2013 series at Hampton Downs over the weekend of February 16 and 17.

TicketPros is New Zealand's newest, secure, electronic ticketing provider and now the official ticketing partner of V8 SuperTourers.

The new simple site allows single or multiple purchases and visitors can choose what event tickets they want for each day as well as being able to access Grandstand seats where they are available and corporate hospitality packages. A short series of clicks is all that is required and the site is designed to be straightforward, fast and very user friendly and with all of the regular payment options.

All types of ticket can be purchased from single day Saturday practice tickets (that also include all of the support class practice and race action) right through to full weekend grandstand options. Sunday only ticket options and parking for both days are also available.

Scott McLaughlin won the inaugural 2012 V8 SuperTourer series with victory at Ruapuna last November and he will be on the grid carrying Number One to defend his title. A field of 20 plus BNT V8 SuperTourers are expected to take on the young gun and challenge for his title in what is quickly becoming regarded as one of the most competitive racing categories in world motorsport.

TicketPros have released early bird Hampton Downs BNT V8 SuperTourers tickets for Round One and these are now available at www.ticketpros.co.nz which offer worthwhile reductions on gate prices.

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

So concerns about the work of the piece have to be addressed; but they are complex, and probably better handled in another post. So what about this production itself? More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
