SO CLOSE: Bernie Smith about to throw what could have been a match-winning dart as English opponent Justin Pipe bursts

into a cough during their first round match at the world championship in London.

Cough-gate: ‘Pretty crazy’

• By Gordon Findlater

BERNIE SMITH is hoping

the recently-completed world

darts championship isn’t his

only appearance on the sport’s

biggest stage.

However, if it is, he will

always be remembered for being

part of a great piece of sporting

controversy.

Smith was a part of what

has been labelled ‘cough-gate’

when he was knocked out in

the first round of the world

championship by England’s

Justin Pipe.

Pipe, the world No 27, became

the ultimate villain at the

tournament after he was seen

coughing behind Smith as the

53-year-old from Christchurch

attempted to throw a dart for

double 10 which would have

won him the match.

Within 24 hours of the

incident, the footage of Pipe’s

cough was making headlines

around the world after Sky

Sport UK commentator and

former pro, Wayne Mardle,

pointed out the cough during

coverage the following day.

“That was a tactic for

advantage, that was a tactic to

make Bernie Smith miss and he

got his way,” said Mardle.

The DRA (Darts

Regulation Authority) have

to do something . . . that was

disgusting.”

Smith, who is a plasterer,

arrived home on Christmas

Day and is currently spending

time with family at his holiday

home in Hanmer Springs. After

having some time to wind down

from darts’ biggest stage, he was

still downplaying the ‘coughgate’

saga. •Turn to page 7

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CITY’S worst intersection for

red light-running saw more than

600 motorists do just that in one

day alone.

Data provided to The Star

showed the worst was Moorhouse

Ave and Colombo St, where 666

motorists ran red lights. Most

of them were approaching the

intersection from the east along

Moorhouse Ave.

No 2 on the list was Chalmers St,

Goulding Ave and Main South Rd,

where 596 vehicles were detected

running reds.

Main North and Johns Rds was

the third worst.

At the city’s 15 worst intersections,

7224 motorists were detected

running red lights. That jumped

from 6580 last year, and 5000 in

2015.

The figures come as the

Christchurch Transport Operations

Centre is undertaking a project to

test how bad red light-running is

across the city to come up with ways

to curb the problem.

Changes could include altering

the amber traffic signal and the

“all-red phase” – where every

signal was red at the same time

at an intersection – by up to

1sec.

The list was collated by the

CTOC over 24 hours on November

30.

Canterbury road policing

manager Senior Sergeant Kelly

Larsen said running amber and

red lights was “high-risk

behaviour.”

Where are the worst red light-runners?

Kelly Larsen

•From page 1

“Any time a driver thinks they

are saving will look insignificant

if they crash and end up waiting

on the side of the road for a tow

truck, or worse still, an ambulance.”

She said red light-runners were

putting themselves, passengers

and other road users at risk.

“Our roads are particularly

busy at this time of year. Police

urge drivers to take a breath, slow

down, and make

safe, courteous

driving choices.”

CTOC manager

Ryan Cooney

said it would

test red lightrunning

using

CCTV cameras

at intersections. Software had

been developed to identify from

the video footage when vehicles

had run red lights.

He said the intersection of

Idris and Wairakei Rds had been

used as a test, which proved the

method was accurate.

CTOC was now testing red

light-running on an “arterial in

Bishopdale.” Mr Cooney could

not reveal the location as doing

so would affect driver behaviour.

Once that was completed and

proved accurate, a live counting

trial would start at intersections

across the city, he said.

The current work is preparing

the infrastructure (minor modifications

to traffic signals and

CCTV) in order to undertake the

live counting trial. “

HIGH RISK: The intersection of Moorhouse Ave and Colombo St was the worst for red

light-runners, with 666 detected in one day.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Mr Cooney said the results

would be known by late

February. Then, any changes to

traffic signal timings could be

decided and implemented, he

said.

In 2016, the worst site for red

light-runners was the intersection

of Blenheim Rd and Mandeville

St with 656. The corner of

Moorhouse Ave and Colombo St,

was second with 647.

The worst intersections for red light-runners:

•Moorhouse Ave/Colombo

St: 666

Concerns over another quarry plan

• By Julia Evans

MORE RESIDENTS on the

outskirts of the city are facing

a battle against a new quarry

development.

This week Fulton Hogan

put forward a plan for a 170ha

quarry on Templeton’s Dawsons,

Curraghs and Jones Rds.

The announcement comes as

Yaldhurst residents continue to

battle the noise and dust effects

from nearby quarries, which

have forced them to wear protective

face masks outside their

own homes. Testing stations

have been set up in Yaldhurst

to monitor air quality.

Templeton Residents’ Association

chairman Garry

Kilday said the proposal has

sparked “major concerns”

for nearby homes in terms of

dust, noise and heavy traffic.

The more we look into

it, there are more and more

issues there are . . . the dust

and noise has the potential to

reduce house prices. People

could be out of pocket because

of this,” he said.

In a letter sent to residents

near the proposed quarry,

Fulton Hogan said it would

be there for 25 to 40 years

PLANS: The area where Fulton Hogan wants to put a quarry on Dawsons, Curraghs and

Jones Rds.

to “keep up with ongoing

demand for aggregates for

greater Christchurch.”

“We see this location as

being suitable because the

site has few neighbours and is

close to State Highway One.”

Mr Kilday said during a

southerly wind, homes could

be inundated with dust, which

could have an impact on health.

“Reading up on the impact

silica in dust can have on respiratory

health is a huge concern,”

Mr Kilday said. “We just don’t

want it to get to the point where

we have to wear masks.”

But Fulton Hogan said in

the letter it is working on “key

quarry management plans”

regarding noise and dust.

The company will apply for

resource consents from the

Selwyn District Council and

Environment Canterbury in

February.

Mr Kilday said although going

up against Fulton Hogan

was a “David and Goliath”

situation, he believed the

voices of the people should be

heard.

There will be a meeting

between the Templeton and

Weedons residents associations

on January 10 at 7.30pm

in St Saviour’s Anglican

Church on Kirk Rd to establish

the next moves.

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

CRASH VICTIM CRITICAL

A person is in a critical

condition after a three-car

crash in Russley on Tuesday

night. Emergency services

were called to Russley Rd

(State Highway One), near the

intersection with Bentley St,

at about 10.40pm. A police

spokesperson was reported as

saying it appeared two cars

had hit a third parked vehicle.

Firefighters cut one occupant

from the wreckage and that

person was taken to Christchurch

Hospital in a critical condition.

Two other occupants were also

taken to hospital, one with

serious injuries the other with

moderate injuries. Earlier in

the evening firefighters cut free

another person from a crashed

vehicle in Redwood who was

taken to hospital with serious

injuries.

SLOW DRIVER FINED

A rental vehicle travelling

to Christchurch from Akaroa

on Saturday was pulled over by

police and the driver was fined

for driving too slow. Included in

the queue of 40 vehicles built up

behind it was an off-duty police

officer. Sergeant Alex Pickover,

who was on a day off, said the

vehicle was travelling 50km/h in

a 100km/h zone on Christchurch

Akaroa Rd. “There were quite a

few vehicles backed up behind

it before police pulled the driver

over. It was quite a hold-up for a

number of motorists,” he said.

Rolleston blaze

ANOTHER SCRUB fire flared up in

Rolleston yesterday.

The blaze spread through an area 100m

x 5m and was tackled by a number of

appliances and a helicopter near Tresillian

Drive at 1.30pm. The fire was contained

by 2.30pm.

Firefighters are taking no chances

after a huge fire destroyed a number of

houses forced the evacuation of residents

near Rolleston on December 23 and

another ripped through nearly 100ha on

Christmas Day near Hororata.

Free parking costs ratepayers

Fire rages, homes at risk

Council set to review central

city incentive next month

• By Bridget Rutherford

THE CITY council gave up more

than $22,000 in revenue over the

first 22 days of its one-hour free

car parking offer in the central

city.

City council transport

operations manager

Aaron Haymes said

between November 10

and December 1, it gave

away 8197 hours of free

parking. The incentive is

set to be reviewed next

month.

That added up to

$22,677 in revenue the

city council missed out

on, he said.

In September, city councillors

voted to offer a hour of free

parking in six of its off-street car

parks over a four-month trial

period to entice people back into

the central city.

The car parks involved

included the Lichfield St car

park, Christchurch Art Gallery,

Worcester St near New Regent St,

Rolleston Ave and Aldersgate on

Aaron Haymes

Durham St North. Mr Haymes

said 9284 vehicles parked in the

new Lichfield St car park during

that time, which averaged out to

422 a day.

The city council gave away

5142 free hours at the Lichfield

St car park. On average,

vehicles stayed for about

1hr 50min, he said.

In the other five car

parks, the city council

gave away 3055 hours

of free parking, Mr

Haymes said.

There seems to be

a growing number of

people visiting the city.

There are a lot of people

out and about.”

Central City Business Association

manager Paul Lonsdale said

it was always going to be hard

to say whether the initiative had

made a difference.

The rhetoric to having an

hour free resonates with the

shoppers,” he said. One of

the problems motorists faced

was finding the free car parks

because so many of the city’s

landmarks had gone, he said.

“We need to create new

landmarks.” Mr Haymes said

the occupancy pattern in the

Lichfield St car park showed

a steady increase in numbers,

growing by about 1000 vehicles

each week. In the first week, 2024

vehicles parked there.

“We’ve had quite a few positive

comments from people who love

our Lichfield facility and have

started coming into the city

more often now.”

When the trial ends in February,

a review will be undertaken

to see how effective it had been.

It costs motorists $2.80 an

hour to park in the Lichfield St

car park from 6am-6pm every

day.

Quake-prone building list grows

• By Bridget Rutherford

ABOUT 130 buildings have been

added to the earthquake-prone

list over the past three months,

meaning they must be repaired

or demolished within 15 years.

The city council has sent

notices to the building owners

to let them know that under new

legislation they have less time to

either strengthen or demolish

them.

A list of 29 buildings issued

notices by the city council in

October was released to The Star

under the Local Government Official

Information and Meetings

Act.

But the national earthquakeprone

buildings register shows

more have been added since

then.

Those on the October list

included the town hall, currently

being restored, the earthquakedamaged

former Municipal

Chambers, which has had its repairs

put on hold, and the closed

Upper Riccarton War Memorial

Library. Others were buildings

across the city.

These are newly-identified

earthquake-prone buildings that

have mainly come to our notice

when applications for building

consents for strengthening

have been

made,” a city council

spokesman said.

The owners have

been proactive in

deciding to strengthen

their buildings and

the notices will be

removed when the

work is completed and

signed off.”

Others added in

November and December

included the Cathedral

“It was pretty crazy I tell you, this

cough-gate thing,” said Smith.

“When I saw it, I did think it

looked pretty bad, but you couldn’t

hear anything. It was so noisy.”

“I wouldn’t have said anything if

I heard it anyway.”

The New Brighton Club player

lost the opening two sets of the

match against Pipe and looked

odds-on to lose the match 0-3.

However, with the crowd behind

him in the third set, Smith won two

sets on the trot to level the score,

before having two darts to win the

match when he led 2-1 on legs in

the fifth and deciding set.

The crowd fires you up, that’s

what happened. They wanted more,

they don’t want to go home,” said

Smith.

They fired up, I fired up and next

minute I had a shot at the win.”

Pipe was given a nasty reception

from the crowd in his next match

against 16-time world champion

Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor. The crowd

effects were constantly turned down

during the coverage of the match as

expletives were thrown his way.

“I actually felt sorry for him

[Pipe], the crowd were booing him

in my game as well,” said Smith.

After coming within a throw

of upsetting one of the sports top

players Smith is now hungry to get

back to darts’ biggest stage.

“You get a taste don’t you? It’s a

bit like eating chocolate,” Smith

said. Smith earned £11,000

(NZ$20,932) for making it to the

first round. He says a good chunk

of the winnings will be invested

back into the sport.

“Probably more darts trips. I’ll

give it another good bash this year,”

less than 34 per cent of the New

Building Standard, it is defined

as earthquake-prone and a notice

must be sent to the owner.

The buildings must be upgraded

or removed within 15

years. Previously, owners had 30

years to do so.

Buildings are usually earthquake-prone

because they were

built to earlier design standards

or were damaged in the earthquakes.

The city council has also sent

notices to owners of six known

“priority” buildings.

Those included the St

Albans and Diamond Harbour

fire stations, as well as the

Christchurch City Fire Station’s

west wing, 1 Cathedral Square,

and Christchurch Hospital’s

boilerhouse and emergency

extension block.

“Priority” buildings included

hospital buildings, those used to

provide emergency response services

and unreinforced masonry

buildings that could collapse in a

moderate earthquake.

These buildings have to be

remedied within 7.5 years.

DAMAGED: The Cathedral of

the Blessed Sacrament is on

the earthquake-prone list,

but work is under way to

restore it.

Others that could be classed as

priority buildings include those

with unreinforced masonry

which could fall on pedestrian

and traffic thoroughfares

during an earthquake, or those

that could impede important

transport routes.

The city council will undertake

public consultation this year to

ask where these areas are. From

there, it will be able to identify

any other buildings that may

require re-prioritisation.

The new legislation came into

force after years of campaigning

by February 22, 2011, earthquake

survivor Ann Brower.

Dr Brower was the only person

to survive when a Colombo

St building collapsed on a bus

people.

The building that collapsed

was damaged in the September

4, 2010, earthquake, but had not

been reinforced or fenced off.

Historic document to release secrets

UK experts

to examine

Canterbury

Roll at

university

• By Kurt Bayer

A UNIQUE medieval manuscript

dating back to the bloody War

of the Roses and acquired by

Canterbury University a century

ago, is being examined for hidden

secrets of its origins.

The extraordinary 600-year-old

English illuminated genealogical

scroll, known as the Canterbury

Roll, was acquired the university

in 1918

and is the only

genealogical roll

in the Southern

Hemisphere.

It was once

owned by

pioneering

Chris Jones

Christchurch

nurse Sibylla

Emily Maude, and medieval historian

senior lecturer Chris Jones

says it is the most significant and

substantial medieval artefact in

New Zealand.

For the past century, Canterbury

University has been guardian

of the rare 15th-century

IN 1968 it had been 14 years

since the last tram ran in the

central city.

But 50 years ago on

January 6 the Tramway

Historical Society opened the

first stage of the Ferrymead

Heritage Park tramway.

Secretary Dave Hinman said

the society started out by hunting

around for trams that had been

sold off when the central city

tramways closed in 1954.

HISTORIC: The Canterbury Roll medieval manuscript dates back to the War of the Roses.

artefact, which tells the history of

England from its mythical origins

to the late Middle Ages.

“No one has anything like this

in New Zealand or Australia and

it’s utterly bonkers that no one really

knows we have it, because it’s

magnificent,” said Dr Jones.

“It’s visually striking. The Wars

of the Roses are what Game of

Thrones is based on, and this is

This week the society has

been preparing to mark the

anniversary by re-enacting the

1968 opening ceremony in front

of the main tram barn at 275

Bridle Path Rd. The event will

be held on Saturday from

1.30pm.

There will be tram rides over

the original section of the line,

as well as into the Ferrymead

township.

The park will then hold Steam

the Wars of the Roses laid out

across a 5m visually spectacular

document.”

A team of British scientists

arrive in Christchurch next week

to conduct in-depth testing of the

scroll with specialised equipment

to look for “hidden” writing and

any other information about its

origins.

It will involve ground-breaking

Sunday with steam trains running

and the society’s tram barns

and workshop will have historical

displays.

“We started out restoring the

city’s heritage and now we’ve got

our own to celebrate,” Mr Hinman

said.

One of the highlights over the

50 years was in 1995 when the

central tram lines were

re-established, Mr Hinman

said.

work never before been applied

to this type of manuscript, Jones

said.

To mark the centenary of its

acquisition, university staff and

students are working on The Canterbury

Roll Project to translate

and digitise the document to make

it more accessible to the world.

The digitised version will be available

to the public later this year.

The Canterbury Roll is a

unique example of a medieval

manuscript in New Zealand and

Australia, Dr Jones said.

“It is not the only manuscript

roll from this period to exist in

the world, but uniquely, it features

contributions from both the key

players in the Wars of the Roses –

it was originally drawn up by the

Lancastrian side in the conflict

but it fell into Yorkist hands and

they re-wrote part of it.”

It is unclear how the Maude

family acquired the document,

although Dr Jones said that in

1918, the family believed they

had owned it since the Middle

Ages.

Canterbury College professors

bought the roll as part of an

effort to help foster a sense of

British identity in the closing

days of World War I, Dr Jones

said.

The roll is both an important

part of European history and –

after a century – an important

part of the New Zealand story.

“In particular, it embodies the

way attitudes to colonialism have

changed: it began as a celebration

of New Zealand as a British

colony; from the 1970s it was

hidden away as an embarrassing

reminder of that colonial past;

today, it has been dusted off

and is used in comparative

teaching to explore differences

and similarities between western

concepts and whakapapa,’’ he

said. – NZ Herald

Australian market for weight loss book

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Kurt Bayer

A CHRISTCHURCH mother

who self-published a book

detailing how she shed 20kg in

nine months by just slashing

sugar from her diet has secured a

transtasman publishing deal.

Amanda Tiffen wrote A Life

Less Sugar: How I lost 20kg by reducing

my sugar intake after her

amazing weight-loss programme.

Using a home printer she ran

off copies before it was picked

up by nationwide books retailer

Paper Plus and went on to sell

thousands of copies.

Tiffen, 43, then teamed up

with close friend Leigh Brown

to launch a cookbook featuring

35 low-sugar recipes that also

proved a major hit.

Publishing powerhouse Harper

Collins then contacted Tiffen

with a proposal to work together.

SUCCESS:

Amanda Tiffen

lost 20kg by

slashing sugar

from her diet.

Now, A Life Less Sugar has

been given the glossy professional

treatment and is available

for sale in both New Zealand and

Australia.

“I’m really proud of it,” Tiffen

said.

“It’s quite amazing that it’s

been achieved, the book is quite

amazing. The amount of people

that we can help in Australia is

hard to comprehend.”

The 272-page “part memoir,

part diet and recipe book”

compiles both of Tiffen’s earlier

attempts while updates with new

recipes and information.

It tells how Tiffen had always

struggled to keep her weight in

check.

She tried weight loss programmes,

the gym, but nothing

kept the kilos off.

But four years, she saw a documentary

on the perils of sugar

which struck a chord.

Afterwards, a quick survey

of her cupboards and fridge

discovered that most of what she

ate, and thought to be healthy

– muesli bars, fruit muffins,

sandwiches, stir fry sauces, “low

fat” packaged food, fruits – were

in fact jam-packed with sugar.

“It was a very big surprise,” she

said.

Tiffen slowly reduced her estimated

daily consumption of 30

teaspoons of sugar to just six.

She increased vegetables,

protein and meat, while cutting

carbohydrates.

Over nine months, she lost a

staggering 20kg “with absolute

ease.”

Amazed with the results,

friends and family followed suit,

with similar success.

In a frantic fortnight, she wrote

her book which is now on sale at

most major booksellers on both

sides of the Tasman.

“I’ve seen it on the shelves at

The Warehouse, it’s so exciting.

I almost want to stand there and

see if anyone notices and say,

‘That’s my book!’” she said.

“I don’t know just how far this

is going to go and how many

more people we can help but it’s

really exciting.” – NZ Herald

EXCITED: Tiffen’s book on weight loss will be sold in Australia.

GARDENING

ADVICE with

Regular watering and garden management is critical for plant health

during the hot summer months. Adding a thick layer of mulch around

plants will help prevent soil moisture evaporating. Avoid watering

during the hottest part of the day when plants are heat stressed;

instead water in the early morning or evening.

We have a Daltons Garden Mulch Pack to giveaway.

Each pack is valued at over $85 and contains:

What is the best way to save young trees from night beetle infestation?

The insect you refer to sounds like the brown or bronze beetle

which is an adult grass grub. They wreak havoc with lawns as

larvae and once they have pupated into beetles, they feed on

the foliage of ornamental shrubs and trees for around 2-3

weeks in early Spring/early Summer on warm, still evenings.

There are a number of insecticides that specifi cally deal with

these types of beetles which can either be sprayed on the

foliage of trees from October onwards, or granules distributed

on the ground around plants.

Another suggestion would be to also treat your lawn for grass

grubs from late January/early February until the end of Autumn

to attack the problem early on.

• 3 x Daltons Mulch & Grow

• 3 x Daltons Nugget Bark

• 4 x Besgrow Coir Briquette

• PLUS a pair of comfortable,

versatile Red Back gardening

gloves from Omni Products

TO WIN!

$85

PRIZE

PACK!

Talk to your local garden centre for product advice as they are

typically aware of problems in your local area and can give you

advice on which product has worked best for others.

Another tip - check your various plants to see which of them

are less prone to major beetle damage, this will provide a guide

for future plantings.

What’s in fashion

FASHIONS come and go,

and changes in climate

and lifestyle influence our

gardens just as they affect

other parts of life.

So it’s fun to try and predict

the outdoor trends for

this year.

Here are some suggestions:

•Organics will rule. The

trend to organics will

accelerate and most gardeners

will be looking for

natural-based fertilisers

and low toxic pest controls.

•Food plants are in. It’s

everyone’s ambition to

have a vegetable garden.

Even the smallest garden

can find room for a herb

pot. Beginners should start

their herb garden with

a pot of chives. They’re

probably the easiest herbs

to grow, and they tolerate

a fair amount of neglect.

•Edible gardens are in

but in smaller spaces.

Dwarf fruit trees in fashionable

containers, and

small-growing vegetable

varieties are popular even

for larger gardens.

•Flowers in the garden

will hit the comeback trail.

Strappy-leafed plants and

foliage plants will still be

in favour but their dominance

will start to fade.

A nostalgic hankering for

flowering plants is beginning

to surface. Plants that

straddle both categories

(day lilies, dwarf agapanthus

and tulbaghia, also

called society garlic, are

good examples) will lead

this resurgence.

•Water (or lack of it) will

be one of the biggest challenges.

Cistus (rock rose),

Indian hawthorn and

the native mirror plants

(Coprosma spp) are some

of these tough survivors.

The biggest range of vehicles in one location

Purdon’s All Stars chasing $5m

• By Michael Guerin

THREE WHITE pieces of paper

covered in scribbled nicknames

hold the key to more than $5

million of summer harness

racing riches.

And the first plans contained

on those papers go into action

tomorrow night with a surprise

at Cambridge and a champion in

Perth.

After a complete domination

of Sunday’s Auckland Trotting

Cup meeting – where they won

seven of nine races they contested

– Rolleston-based Mark

Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen

sat down yesterday to plan where

their army of pacing stars go

next.

The logistics are mindboggling,

with not just tens of

millions of dollars of horseflesh

heading to all parts of Australasia,

requiring flights, ground

transportation and handlers, but

the bookings for all the staff who

need to be in New South Wales

and Victoria weeks before the

race track action starts.

An example: While Vincent

and his stablemates were running

the trifecta in the Auckland

Cup, the stable had Lazarus,

Ultimate Machete, Have Faith In

Me and Piccadilly Princess having

a quiet day in Perth, where

the All Stars have had a travelling

TOP PICK: Mark Purdon driving Lazarus to win the Christchurch

Casino NZ Trotting Cup in November. Purdon will be back in

the sulky tomorrow night. PHOTO KAI SCHWOERER/GETTY

foreman for six weeks.

That is where Lazarus will

resume tomorrow night before

he races there the following two

weeks, with Ultimate Machete

and Have Faith In Me joining

him in both the Fremantle and

West Australia Cups. “He is

working well so this week will be

a perfect lead-up to the cups for

him,” says Purdon, who is back

from suspension to drive Lazarus

tomorrow night.

The blueprint for the rest of the

all-conquering stable was only

confirmed on Tuesday and it has

some calls which will impact

dramatically on pre-post markets

RYAN YARDLEY has become

the latest driver to enter the

Castrol Toyota Racing Series.

The Christchurch driver will

step up to the country’s premier

single-seater racing competition

after winning the Toyota 86

Championship last year.

Although he knows many of

his rivals have more experience

in modern “wings and slicks”

single-seater race cars, he is

determined to do all he can to be

competitive.

“This is a big step up, my first

category with proper aerodynamics.

I’ve had 40-50

laps in a car and will

be fine-tuning on my

single-seater form

between now and the

championship, including

some simulator

work. So I’m looking

to start fast and learn

everything I can,” said

Yardley.

Having the opportunity

to attend

the MotorSport New

Zealand Elite Motorsport

Academy in 2014 has

as well as the group one racing

landscape.

The only good news for Australian

trainers is the already

expected decisions that unbeaten

three-year-old, Chase Auckland,

will stay home, as does Elle Mac,

while Dream About Me also does

as she struggles with soundness.

“Chase Auckland has had a

couple of hard runs and been

great in them but you can’t do

that every week so he will miss

the derbies in Victoria and NSW

and be set for the Northern

Derby here,” explains Purdon.

“And Dream About Me hasn’t

been quite right so won’t go to

helped Yardley grasp

the opportunity.

The academy works

with young racers on

every major aspect

of their motorsport

career, including

fitness, nutrition,

media skills and

sponsorship.

The latter has been

Yardley’s main focus

over the past month.

Like so many young

New Zealanders

before him, he needs to marry

Pace invaders

The plans for the All Stars army of pacing superstars have

been finalised.

They will chase more than A$5 million of races in the next

two months.

•Lazarus resumes in Perth tomorrow, hours after Heaven

Rocks contests the Flying Mile at Cambridge.

•Unbeaten three-year-old Chase Auckland, Dream About

Me and Elle Mac are the big names not going to Australia.

Australia but we will have Piccadilly

Princess and Partyon for

the mares races over there.”

Even without Chase Auckland,

the three-year-old team for the

derbies in Australia will contain

The Devils Own and All U Need

Is Faith (NSW), Spankem and

Ashley Locaz (Victoria and then

possibly NSW).

But the other big surprise is

that Heaven Rocks will take his

unique brand of crazy to both

Victoria and NSW, after stopping

in at Cambridge tomorrow night

for the $60,000 Flying Mile. “I

was happy with him in the Auckland

Cup and after Cambridge

he will go to the Ballarat Cup

and the Hunter Cup, with Laz

going to the Hunter as well.

Then they will both go to

NSW to try and qualify for the

Miracle Mile.”

Vincent and Titan Banner

will be waiting for their mates at

Menangle, with the pair to skip

Victoria, and Vincent will race

up his racing talent with the

funding that will let him compete

on a level footing with the

internationals.

Yardley will start his series bid

at his home circuit, Ruapuna,

next weekend. He says having

raced two seasons of the Toyota

86 Championship is an advantage.

The TR 86 sport coupes

use Michelin slicks so he is

familiar with how slicks behave

and understands how to get the

best performance from a set of

tyres. The 86 championship also

visits every circuit contested in

in lead ups to the Chariots Of

Fire on February 10 and Titan

Banner in free-for-alls before

the Miracle Mile preludes on

February 17.

That raises the very real

possibility if Ultimate Machete

qualifies for the Chariots Of

Fire and races well there, the All

Stars could have five horses in

the running for a Miracle Mile

invite.

“It is possible that could

happen but we are not getting

carried away with that, there is a

lot of racing to go before then,”

said Purdon.

The one window of

opportunity the stable has left

open for their rivals is the NSW

Oaks, for which they won’t have

their best fillies in action.

“It clashes with the Sales Series

at Addington so fillies like Elle

Mac will stay home and Bettor

Trix and Bare Knuckle will be

our NSW Oaks pair.”

–NZ Herald

Toyota 86 champ makes step up to single-seater class

Ryan Yardley

the five week TRS. “I am already

familiar with the circuits though

the braking points and cornering

speeds are of course different,”

said Yardley.

His aim is to join the battle

at the sharp end of the field, to

run in the top five and to score

some podiums as the season

progresses.

Yardley joins fellow Christchurch

driver Marcus Armstrong

in the series. Armstrong, 17, will

go into the series as one of the

title favourites after winning the

Italian Formula 4 championship.

Skoda Kodiaq worthy

car of the year winner

• By Ross Kiddie

THE New Zealand

Motoring Writers’ Guild

Car of the Year Award is

by far the country’s most

prestigious.

As a long-term guild

member I’m well aware

of the criteria that go into

selecting the finalists, and

the comprehensive evaluation

process that goes into

determining the winner.

The award for end-ofyear

2017 went to a worthy

winner and a vehicle which

ended up close to the top

in my vote, it was Skoda’s

Kodiaq, a five or sevenseater

sport utility vehicle.

While many people are

quick to point out the

Kodiaq’s similarity with

Volkswagen’s Tiguan, I

don’t see it as being the

same vehicle. Sure, there

are many similarities and

that’s not surprising, the

two share the same platform

and are essentially

built by the same company,

Volkswagen has a major

shareholding in the Czech

Republic’s Skoda administration.

That aside, the Kodiaq

is a pretty clever piece

of kit. Regular readers

will recall my entry-level

Ambition evaluation in

these columns in October,

I remarked then that it

was an amazing vehicle at

$39,990 and, even though

it was a step into a fivemodel

range, the price

and capability had instant

appeal to me.

This evaluation focuses

on a model a bit nearer to

the top of the range, the

2-litre, petrol-powered

Style which has four-wheeldrive,

seven seats and

lists at $54,290. Only the

diesel-engined variant is

more expensive at $58,290.

However, bear in mind that

the range starts at under

$40k for the 1.4-litre petrol

car I tested previously,

and it is a seriously good

vehicle. In fact, it would

be the car for me, sure,

it’s nice to have the power

of the 2-litre but the wee

1.4 punches well above its

weight.

Skoda rates the 1984cc

unit at 132kW and 320Nm.

In true European enginebuilding

fashion the turbocharged

unit develops

a lot of its power low in

the rev band. Peak power

arrives all of the way from

3900pm to 6000rpm and

maximum torque comes in

at 1400rpm and meets the

point of peak power.

That being the case, there

SKODA KODIAQ: Comprehensive model range.

is a minuscule amount of

power drop-off, the entire

acceleration and transmission

process is seamless.

The latter is a seven-speed

direct shift automatic, and

without the power-robbing

characteristics of a torque

converter the way the

power process is developed

is simply extraordinary.

The Kodiaq Style is quick

with an 8.2sec standstill to

100km/h acceleration time

and it will scoot through a

highway overtake in 4.9sec

– 80km/h to 120km/h.

• Price – Skoda Kodiaq

Style, $54,290

• Dimensions – Length,

4697mm; width,

1882mm; height,

1676mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

1984cc, 132kW,

320Nm, seven-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.2sec

• Fuel usage –

7.4l/100km

The feel from beneath

the throttle is constantly

entertaining and encouraging.

Sure, the Kodiaq isn’t

a sports car but that word

is represented in the acronym

SUV and the engine is

most pleasing.

It is also built in the way

where fuel usage hasn’t

been sacrificed. Skoda also

rates it with a 7.4-litre per

100km (38mpg) combined

cycle average. It will sip

fuel close to that claim at

6l/100km (47mpg) instantaneously

at 100km/h

with the engine turning

over quite relaxed at just

1800rpm.

Most of my driving with

the test car, over a generous

seven days, was at city

speed and even though that

doesn’t present the best fuel

economy result, the dash

panel readout was listing a

combined average of just

The Star

9l/100km (31mpg), which I

thought was impressive.

On my usual highway

loop the Kodiaq cruises

quietly and smoothly, it

also steers beautifully into

a corner. The test car was

riding on fabulous Pirelli

rubber which provides

optimum feedback and

response directly to steering

input.

The suspension is a fully

independent mix of struts

and multiple links with

spring and damper rates

well balanced for comfort

and the inevitable time

the Kodiaq will be asked

to traverse undulating

ground.

While most four-wheeldrives

of this ilk can’t be

considered genuine offroaders,

the Kodiaq is a

capable all-road vehicle,

and the short shingle road

journey I presented it

with served to prove how

tidy it is in a loose surface

environment. Ruts and

corrugations are well dealt

to and occupant comfort

has been a manufacturing

priority.

The Kodiaq is a sevenseater

built the way we

expect of the modern SUV.

The rear row of seats fold

up from the floor, and even

though they would only be

suitable for short trips for

adults, for youngsters, and

the slight of build, the rear

area is entirely practical.

Up front the driver has

at his or her command a

wealth of functions and

high specification fitment.

The list is way too comprehensive

to detail, but I can

report that for around $55k

the Kodiaq has specification

far greater that I would

expect to normally find for

this price.

That, and its overall capability

is why I’m so smitten

with it as a vehicle and

even though it won’t have

its own way in the marketplace

it can’t have got away

to a better start in the New

Zealand SUV market.
