Local drivers turned out in force to raise money to help Foxton stockcar driver Peter Rees get to Holland and England to represent New Zealand at September's Brisca F1 Stockcar World Finals. The meeting, postponed the previous week because of torrential rain, also did not escape the elements with light rain and one heavy downpour. Family fun in the mud seemed to be the theme, with brothers Corran and Kyle Taylor, of Levin, and Waikanae brother and sister James and Georgia Mallia competing in the ministocks. The derby cars featured one whole team made up of family and friends from Foxton: Kelvin Gunther, Nigel Timms, Dylan Preston, Hamish McLeod, Alec Wilson and Courtney Timms. Alec also raced his stockcar and Courtney her ministock. In the stockcars, locals included Levin's Lee Norris and Ron Tye, of Shannon, along with Peter Rees himself. Despite the rain and slippery track, the day proved a huge success and entertaining for the spectators. -- Story and photo by Steve Green, sportsimages.co.nz. Human dramas in sport achievement Triumphant moment: World Masters track and field athlete Gabre Gabric, 95, in the sports documentary Autumn Gold. By MARGARET IRVINE Four sports documentaries will play in this year s New Zealand International Film Festival. Cricket, Formula One, chess and senior sports would be rep- resented in the line-up sched- uled to play around New Zea- land from July. Considering the vast audi- ence for broadcast live sports, it s surprising how few top-rate documentaries we see about sport. It s a rare pleasure to find four of them in a single year, festival director Bill Gosden said. Senna follows the career of Formula One driver Ayrton Senna with never-before-seen racing footage and candid inter- views. Senna was a Brazilian legend and this documentary presents the most comprehensive portrait of the racing icon to date. You don t have to be a petrol-head to see what this guy had going on. The film contains amazing foot- age of his behind-the-scenes battles with the Formula One elite, said Gosden. The West Indies 15-year domination of cricket worldwide is captured in Fire in Babylon. The documentary features archival footage from key cricket matches along with a sound track of Bob Marley and Burn- ing Spear. The West Indies team played during a very turbulent era; there were race riots in Britain, Apartheid in South Africa and civil unrest in the Caribbean. Fire in Babylon makes a very strong case for how the team became a major inspiration for black equality. It is a must-see not just for cricket fans, assist- ant programmer Michael McDonnell said. Autumn Gold follows five athletes aged 82-plus as they battle age, arthritis and their competitors at the World Masters Championship. Bobby Fischer Against The World tells the story of chess World Champion Bobby Fischer s rise and fall, anchoring the story around Fischer s game against Boris Spassky in Iceland in 1972. The NZ International Film Festival runs in Wellington from July 28 to August 14. See nzff.co.nz. Dragging in the dollars Four local Westpac banks are fundraising for the Westpac Chopper Appeal in the hopes of seeing their bank managers dress up as drag queens. Staff and the public are pledg- ing money towards managers. The first to raise $500 will have toputonadragshowatSt Mary s Church in Levin on June 10.The contestants are Clinton Grimstone, from the Parapara- umu branch, Paul Goode, man- ager of both the Levin and Otaki branches, Foxton s Randal Peni and area wealth adviser Robert Lochhead. Organiser Anita Bezuiden- hout said the chopper appeal is a way for staff to have a great time for a good cause. Everyone thinks it s awesome . . . we are including everyone in the Wellington North area and they re really getting behind it. She came up the idea of a drag show in early April and has been planning it since. People are already pledging money by email, text message, phone, fax and Facebook, she said. The public can make a pledge by contacting their local branch. The St Mary s show is on June 10 at 7.30pm. High tea with fashion Te Horo School raised more than $4000 on Sunday during a high tea at the Te Horo Community Hall. The 120 women were entertained by guest speakers -- and a power cut which stopped the water supply, halting the flow of tea and coffee. Organiser Kylie Morete said speakers talked about dressing for body shape, style hair, and other hints on fashion and appearance. We had coffee and tea donated, and even the place mats and table sheets were donated. The next school fundraiser is a beerfest where participants will be encouraged to dress up in traditional beer-drinking attire.
