Register now for the V8 Supercars Drive-in Movie

23 October, 2015


Registrations are now open for the free V8 Supercars Drive-in Movie, taking place at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on Saturday, October 31.

The V8 Supercars Drive-in Movie is one of the free events happening in Auckland to celebrate the return of the V8 Supercars, and, as voted by Aucklanders in an online poll hosted by The Rock FM, the movie on the night will be Fast and Furious 6.

While entry is free, people will need to register online in advance here, and display a ticket in their car window. On the night, gates will open at 7pm, and the feature will start at 8.15pm. There will be live entertainment until the movie starts, food and drink stalls, and chances to win great prizes.

As well as the drive-in movie, there will be a day of celebration as V8s take over central Auckland, on November 5, for the V8 Supercars Fan Day at Aotea Square. The V8 Supercar drivers will parade up Queen Street in a convoy of classic American muscle cars, and Aotea Square will have free activities from 10am–3pm, with the V8 supercar drivers at the event from midday until 1.15pm.

Fans can meet the drivers, get autographs and selfies, test their skills on the recently released Forza Motorsport 6 Xbox game, check out high-performance remote-controlled cars, get a close-up look at the 30 muscle cars, and get into high gear for the ITM 500 Auckland 2015. Lucky gamers will have the chance to pit their console skills against champion drivers.

The high-octane ITM 500 Auckland V8 Supercars returns to Pukekohe Park Raceway from November 6–8, 2015, with no-holds-barred sprint action, motorsport racing, and family entertainment.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
