How did the $1.2m supercar race leave Auckland?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, The V8 supercars race costs Auckland ratepayers $1.2m and is the city's most-publicly-sponsored major event. So how did it suddenly end up shifting from its Pukekohe home to Waikato's Hampton Downs? Read the story below:

Noise when cutting the pavers for an independent home DIY paving task - Qiubo (David) Su

Qiubo (David) from Half Moon Bay

Hi Neighbourly,

(update - at the early 2020, I finished the paving task for the bike track & footpath along one side of the concrete driveway, then I carried on transferring another section of grass garden to paving area and this task will be carried on for some more days. during this process, whenever discovering new issues in my garden area, I will address it and fix it, e.g. I just repaired the very aged retaining wall of this section of grass garden with brand new retaining wall timber, and fixed the issue of the storm water drainage system for this retaining wall. I did all these tasks by myself alone independently (except of asking some gardeners in Newspaper some questions over the phone). when using the power tools at some stage in the process, there is loud noise, and I have already addressed this issue in below paragraph. as said around Xmas & New Year period is the best time to do this kind of home DIY tasks. sorry if the noise makes you uncomfortable)

This Xmas & New Year period, I have been independently working on the paving task to convert part of the grass garden area to paving area (I actually started the task in my garden from 28 Dec 2019, while spending a few days before this date to purchase, prepare the foundation materials). The foundation is strong, so it needs to take a lot of time to prepare the foundation to dig out the dirt/clay with the mattock, hoe, shovel, to clean the foundation, to screen out the stone, gravel from the dig out dirt/clay for reusing.

2016 Xmas & 2017 New Year, I alone transferred a few m2 grass garden area to paving area, and repaired a small section of the existing paving area. The condition of these paving areas is still very good.
Xmas & New Year is the best time to do this kind of home DIY tasks, as a lot of people either go away for holiday, or some of them staying at home might do the similar home DIY tasks.

As I have already had some experience (and the required tools also) on paving task, so this new independent paving task from scratch should be less difficult for me. But it will take a lot more time, as the area is a lot larger than previous one.

When cutting the pavers to fit the paving areas, it will be very noisy, as loud as mowing the lawn, operating the drill or the chainsaw. Sorry if you're uncomfortable for the noise.

BTW have a great Xmas & New Year.

Best regards,
Qiubo (David) Su
