Motorsport community mourns dedicated backer

It is with regret that Motorsport New Zealand acknowledges the passing of Greg Horne.

“Greg, in his capacity as BNT general manager, has been a major supporter of circuit racing and rallying; he has sponsored series, individual events and a number of drivers,” said MSNZ President Shayne Harris. “His passion for the sport and his desire to support it at the highest level has been immense and has ensured the success of champions and championships – he will be greatly missed.”

Greg competed as a co-driver in the national rally championship and, through BNT, supported national champions such as Jason Richards, Richard Mason and Nick Cassidy. BNT also sponsored the NZV8 Gold Star championship and a range of other events and series over many years.

Rally New Zealand Chairman Peter Johnston said: “Greg Horne was one of life’s gentlemen, a great ambassador and supporter of rally in New Zealand. He will be sadly missed especially at the end of NZRC rally stages where he was regularly seen taking times for Richard Mason and an interest in other competitors.”

“Our thoughts and wishes are with Greg’s family,” said Mr Harris. “He was a good man, whose actions benefited many involved in the Motorsport fraternity.”

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>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
