Hanley Makes Solid SuperTourer Debut

Hanley Makes Solid SuperTourer Debut

Chris Hanley enjoyed a solid debut in the BNT SuperTourer series over the weekend at Manfeild - bagging two top ten finishes from three races.

The 23 year old finished 12th in his first race, before recording eighth and ninth place finishes in Sunday's two races. In each race he improved his pace and by the last third of the final race was one of the quickest drivers in the field. The 2013 UDC V8 Ute champion felt his ninth place in the 25 lap feature race could have been even better.

"In the final race we started from P10, got caught up in a few battles which slowed me down and didn't allow me to progress. We had a lot more pace and I think we deserved to finish higher up, but crossed the line P9. Even so, I had a great first weekend in SuperTourers. A big thanks to Mark, Garry and the team at PSR West for allowing all this to happen."

Greg Murphy continued his perfect run for 2014 with three SuperTourer race wins over the weekend at the NZ Grand Prix meeting, with only Simon Evans challenging with two second places and a third.

Hanley, PSR West and the rest of the 201 BNT V8 SuperTourer field now move onto Pukekohe on March for Round 3 of the series, a circuit where he has recorded several top drawer wins in V8 Utes over the past three seasons.

Hanley's 2014 campaign in SuperTourers is supported by The Sound FM, Placemakers Cook Street, Milwaukee, PIC Insurance, AC Diggers, The Mad Butcher, Ferndale Farms, Puke Coal, Fuchs, Redline Signwriters, BOC, Walthall Ward Chartered Accountants, Chiropractic First and Webdesign.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
