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."

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
