Adam Breuer gives his model Sbach 342 a test run in preparation for Wimmera Model Aircraft Association’s Fun Fly near Horsham this weekend. The aircraft, featuring a 35cc petrol motor, will be one of many taking to the sky at Burnt Creek. Organisers expect about 30 model aircraft enthusiasts from across Victoria to take part in the day. The fun fly will feature a broad spectrum of aircraft from large-scale models to aerobatic helicopters. Club members have welcomed the public to its field at Burnt Creek livestock exchange. Aircraft will be in the air between 11am and 4pm on both days. Picture: VIC CRESP

Flood plain challenge A


Western Highway bypass of Horsham, earmarked to sweep east of the city through Riverside, will be subject to strict flood-mitigation requirements. For VicRoads to win ministerial approval for its preferred bypass route it will need to justify ‘substantial’ engineering and infrastructure development and costs to overcome potential water-flow issues. As well as cutting through private property and houses, the route will run through a long-recognised and expansive Wimmera River flood plain, much of which was under water during 2011 floods. Wimmera Catchment Management Authority is the advisory body providing flood information and advice and chief executive David Brennan was quick to point out that the project would be subject to stringent flood-mitigation rules. “For a start, our objective is to make sure there is no net loss of flood-plain space and importantly that there is no

adverse impact to anyone by the transfer of water,” he said.

will be making sure we uphold our role in flood-plain management.

“We’re not in the business of creating a flood legacy. We’re talking about substantial engineering and mitigation works that will be required for this project to happen. And we’re going to make sure every rule is stringently observed.

“We apply that sort of thoroughness from the individual landholder to larger organisations. It’s a very transparent playing field and we want to make sure that continues.”

“If this plan does go ahead there will need to be extensive work done to demonstrate to the community that there will be no impact from flooding.”

Satisfaction Mr Brennan said the authority was acutely aware of community concerns, from ‘both personal to landscape perspectives’. “There are a lot of people who have lived in the area a long time and know historically what happens when it floods,” he said “Flooding will of course be consciously in the mind of residents who experienced the circumstances in January, 2011. We’re very sympathetic to their concerns and we





VicRoads announced late last week that it had selected option ‘B2’, as its preferred option for a future highway bypass of Horsham. Its finding was primarily based on improved freight efficiency and road safety. VicRoads will now refer its finding to state Planning Minister Matthew Guy who will determine the statutory process required for the next phase of planning. VicRoads regional director Ewen Nevett said VicRoads staff members were meeting landowners affected by the decision to discuss the planning study and ‘the process going forward’.

Car up for grabs YOUR HEATING Solution W

immera bargain hunters have the chance to win a new car in the next six weeks in one of the richest shopping-promotion competitions in the region in years.

Horsham Plaza, the region’s biggest under-one-roof shopping centre, will give away a new $15,990 Mazda 2 fourdoor hatch as part of its Horsham Plaza Great Car Giveaway. All shoppers have to do to enter the competition, which starts on Monday and ends at 4pm on July 5, is to simply spend at least $20 from any plaza business. Plaza manager Allison Roberts said the competition was the biggest plaza giveaway since the centre changed Horsham shopping dynamics in the 1980s. “The plaza has run small competitions in the past but nothing as big. Our retailers are all very excited and from Monday everyone who walks into the centre will see this zippy Mazda in the centre mall,” she said. “It is beautiful plaza green colour and has a real wow factor. It even has Horsham Plaza number plates for the display. Morrow Motor Group direc-

tor Gavin Morrow: “It’s a really stylish car that mixes good looks with economy. It is perfect car for both the younger driver and older person who like no-fuss commuting.”

Apart from being on display, the car will act as an ‘entry barrel’ with shoppers dropping their entries directly into the vehicle. Every Friday at 4pm during the competition, plaza officials will draw two of ultimately 12 finalists who will have a chance, at a grand final draw at noon on Saturday, July 5, to choose from sets of keys to open the car. The final draw, led by Mixx FM announcer Nims Azoor, will go live to air on Mixx FM and 3WM to celebrate a 26year relationship between the plaza and ACE Radio.

Heartbeat Radio station Horsham general manager Mark Taylor said he had no hesitation in being part of the competition. “Horsham Plaza has entrenched itself in the Wimmera shopping psyche and in line with similar principles to ourselves, is willing to give back to the community,” he said. Finalists will receive accommodation packages at Mel-

Wood Heaters

Horsham Plaza created history by becoming the first shopping plaza in the Wimmera.

Developed in the heart of city’s shopping precinct, it represented a milestone for Horsham in opening contemporary shopping opportunities that had previously only been available in metropolitan Melbourne and provincial centres. Mrs Roberts said the plaza remained a primary driver behind the Horsham heartbeat as the city continued to grow and shopping opportunities expanded. “As recognition of shopping patronage of the people of the Wimmera and to promote the outstanding businesses making the most of location and services, the plaza, in collaboration with 3WM and Morrows decided to create a competition and offer a car as first prize,” she said. “What’s exciting is that we’re in a position, after drought, flood and economic circumstances of the recent past, to be able to offer such a great prize. “It reflects the commitment of the plaza and its businesses to provide great products, services and deals.”

Ms Wilken said the Warracknabeal community was busy signing petitions and ‘bombarding’ the Target website in an effort to convince Target leaders to reconsider the decision.

Warracknabeal Action Group fears Target plans to close its Warracknabeal store on May 31 will undermine the town’s ability to operate as a service centre.

Target corporate affairs general manager Lynn Semjaniv and Victorian southern region manager Greg Howell travelled to Warracknabeal early this week to meet stakeholders.

Group president Kathryn Wilken said Warracknabeal district people, many of them generational shoppers at the Target Country store in the town, had been devastated by the news.

Target announced on Monday that it was closing its Warracknabeal store as result of a need for mandatory upgrades to the site, extensive maintenance works required and poor financial performance.

“We need to make them are of the repercussions and desperately want them to change their minds,” she said. “Warracknabeal is a small town and provides a service for district communities. If people stop coming to town to buy their kids’ clothes they will stop coming to town altogether and the whole business sector will suffer. “We need the powers that be to understand that a move like this is going to kill a small country town.”


ACN 005 422 766

Mr Howell: “The decision was the result of careful consideration and was not taken lightly. “Following the opening of the Wimmera’s first full-line Target store in Horsham, all 14 Warracknabeal team members will be offered a role at that store. Where our team members would prefer to continue working in Warracknabeal and surrounds, a thorough outplacement process will explore employment opportunities with fellow Wesfarmers businesses.”

Paddocks strong despite dry spell

Wi m m e r a - M a l l e e study from early May has revealed paddocks across the region were maintaining soil structure despite more than half a year of relatively little rain.

The report showed that only 27 or three percent of 878 paddocks surveyed in districts were at high risk of wind erosion.

The Department of Environment and Primary Industries revealed the findings as part of its Wimmera Cropland Management Transect that provides information about stubble retention, stubble burning and soil management.

Department soil-health specialist Chris Pittock praised landholders for limiting the amount of erosion on their paddocks despite the long period of dry weather.

rise from last season when about two percent of paddocks were burnt, but both are down significantly from 2011 when 11 percent of paddocks were burned after a wet summer.”

“This is a very good result,” he said.

Dr Pittock said almost 20 percent of paddocks had been conventionally fallowed, down from about a third from last autumn. Chemical fallow was also down to only one paddock, compared with 13 percent last season.

Dry start Dr Pittock said findings showed that few paddocks had been burned or cultivated this year and at the time of the study few had been sown because of the dry start to the season. “While about 40 percent of paddocks appeared to have been sown at this time last autumn, the figure during this year’s transect was about six percent,” he said. “Two key factors for this season have been low moisture at any depth, which appears to have led to fewer summer weeds but also less crop in the ground. “During the transect we also observed that less than three percent of paddocks along this route had, or would, be burnt. “These figures show a slight

“This reduction in conventional and chemical fallow is a result of low summer rain which meant there were minimal weeds to kill by cultivation or herbicide application,” he said. “About 13 percent had pasture which is up slightly on last season although some of this ‘pasture’ consisted of twoyear-old stubble with some weeds among it. “More than 76 percent of paddocks had retained stubble or pasture cover which is pleasing from a soil health perspective as it is favoured over conventional fallow and burning.”

When we can all barrack as one



ith preparations in full swing for a huge interleague football double-header in Horsham this weekend it is perhaps timely to try to understand why these games occur.

It is also important to understand why many country football leaders want them to keep going despite a powerful suggestion that they have become an irrelevant nuisance. The reality is, as it always has been, that many of us need to put aside our week-to-week domestic rivalries to barrack for a common cause. Anyone who grows up in the Wimmera eventually develops an understanding that the region’s larger population centres can’t exist without the outlying areas and vice-ver-

sa. It’s an understanding that spills into everything from economic and social development to, obviously, sport.

racknabeal, Horsham, Nhill, Dimboola, Minyip and Murtoa was almost as good as playing.

To play with the national and international big boys we have always had to embrace a regionally collective spirit. That’s why organisations such as Wimmera Development Association exist and why it occasionally scores some big wins.

And it was on more than a few occasions that unbridled Big W barracking from the press box at far-flung country centres attracted startled stares.

This regional spirit can manifest itself in different ways. Many years ago, as a young sports reporter charged with the job of covering Wimmera League’s interleague fortunes, I had the annual privilege to experience the one-for-all and all-for-one cut and thrust of championships football. Being on the bus as part of the Wimmera League entourage and sharing stories with footballers and officials from Ararat, Stawell, War-

YOUR SAY Ararat rates SIR,- Ararat Rural City Council has proposed a rate increase of seven percent in its rating strategy. But it then states that the differential rates will increase by 10 percent from 15 to 160 percent for industry, by 10 percent from 120 to 130 percent for commercial and 7.5 percent from 52.5 to 60 percent for farms. When these changes are calculated in real terms, the increases are 6.6 for industrial, 8.3 for commercial and 14.3 for farmers. At the same time the council proposes a reduction in the general rate. When the general rate increase is factored in, this becomes a whopping 16 percent increase for farmers. How does this council expect farmers or any business for that matter to cope with such a huge increase in rates? For the average farm in Ararat Rural City this will take rates from $8178 to $9569, an increase of $1390 while residential landowners who have access to more councils services have had their rates reduced. Where is the equity in this? How does this council think a farming couple struggling to raise a family can suddenly find this much extra money for council to squander when most farm commodities have fallen significantly in price?

My usual response was: “I don’t care. This is the only time I get to barrack.” Saturday’s games between Wimmera and Casey-Gardenia and Horsham District against Loddon Valley at Horsham City Oval will provide the Wimmera football-following fraternity with a rare opportunity to lock arms.

Conference and Boardroom Tables in a wide range of shapes and finishes.

This is no small thing. If sport plays a huge role in Wimmera culture football certainly does the same in sport. As they say in the classics: “C’mon fellas. Do us proud!”

email This is the third year in a row that Ararat Rural City Council has reneged on an agreement with the community to move towards a fair and equitable rating strategy for all ratepayers. Farmers and their families now pay nearly seven times as much as general residential ratepayers for the same or fewer services. If this proposed budget is implemented it will see farmers who comprise about 11 percent of the population paying 40 percent of total rates collected – totally unfair when many council services are not accessible to farmers. It appears this council is unaware the Minister for Local Government passed legislation and produced guidelines to promote fair and equitable rating strategies to be developed by the use of differential rates. Will this council continue to thumb their noses at the minister?

Savage rate increases for all businesses – farming, commercial and industrial, can only serve to drive business away from the area. This council should be condemned for its exploitation of the farming and business sectors. There is an urgent need for an independent investigation of the financial management, particularly the rating strategy of the Rural City of Ararat.

orsham civic leaders have stepped up a message to district subcontractors to register interest in providing services for construction of a new multi million-dollar performing arts centre.

Industry Participation Plan.

Horsham Rural City Council community services director Angela Murphy said only 15 of 90 contractors to so far register with the Industry Capability Network for the project were from Horsham district.

“We looked at economic modeling and the project will generate significant economic activity right up until its completion in 2015,” she said.

She emphasised a State Government requirement meant that project tenderers, in their submissions, had to include ‘local’ suppliers in a Victorian


She added that tenderers sourced these suppliers from the Industry Capability Network, a government-backed independent organisation that had helped connect ‘local’ suppliers with contracts for the last 28 years.

“Obviously, the more local businesses involved the better.” Ms Murphy said businesses registering interest with the Industry Capability Network on website


also opened opportunities for major contractors to consider them for other projects. “This is a real opportunity for our businesses that provide everything from civil works to heating and cooling, window supply and every trade service in between,” Ms Murphy said. “We’re really keen for local suppliers to be heavily involved in building their community’s own performing arts centre but to also open the door for them to explore other opportunities.” Tenders for the $18.5-million redevelopment project close in early June. Construction is scheduled to start in August.

MR MUSIC: Chooka Parker, who captured the attention of a national television audience on Australia’s Got Talent, will busk in Horsham Plaza from 11am tomorrow. While appearing on television, Parker caught judges and the audience by surprise with his ability to create improvised musical pieces at the drop of a hat. The western Victorian musician and shearer from Red Lion near Maryborough has since performed with some of the legends of Australian music. He plays in plazas and community centres to connect with the average person.

akers’ Gallery committee chairperson Colleen Harris has told members that a lift in Horsham’s Mibus Centre, due for completion early next year, will ‘significantly’ increase use of a first-storey workshop.

The McLachlan Street centre houses Horsham library and the Makers` Gallery and has an upstairs workshop artcrafts, library and community groups use regularly.

“At present few people are willing to regularly drag heavy sewing machines, spinning wheels or other large items up the stairs. This lift will alter that.’’ Library corporation chief executive Paula Clark said the lift would provide greater access to an ‘under-used’ workshop which had space, overhead power outlets for IT use, Wi-Fi capability, large tables, kitchen facilities and toilet amenities.

Hugh Delahunty, MLA, announced a $100,000 grant through the State Government’s Regional Growth Fund for the project. Horsham Rural City Council will contribute $25,000 towards the $150,000 cost, matched by $25,000 from the Makers’ Gallery Committee. Upgrade of the upstairs toilets is also included in the cost. Groups that use the upstairs workshop include patchwork quilters, spinners and weavers, a painters group, scrapbooking enthusiasts and botanical artists. It is also a meeting place for

regional library administrators and a place for library programs such as writing workshops, digital literacy, school holiday sessions, and other community groups.

Mrs Harris said groups had members who, for health reasons, were unable to climb stairs to the workshop. Some groups had found alternate ground-floor venues to allow all members to attend.

“Horsham library and the members of the Makers committee will be able to offer a greater variety of programs to the wider community,’’ Ms Clark said. “It’s important that the library can host community events in a physically accessible environment where there are no barriers to participation.’’

Managing pet arthritis places, such as the spine. Generally the development of arthritis is a slow process, which occurs over many years and hence shows up in older animals.

T Outdoor living all year long

his week at the vet clinic our team has been working overtime getting our shelter animals and private patients ready to face the winter. In particular, many of our old patients, both dogs and cats, will need some extra help with their joints and mobility in order to get through the colder months in comfort. Osteoarthritis, more commonly just called arthritis, is one often most common problems we see in older patients.


Over time, the natural movement of the joints causes wear and tear on the cartilage, causing it to become thin or even be worn away in places. This leads to inflammation, and build-up of new bone and scar tissue around the joints, ultimately resulting in stiffness, loss of mobility and pain. Arthritis commonly affects the joints of the limbs, but can also occur in other

However, arthritis can also occur in younger animals when the joints suffer from severe and early wear. This can occur with injuries, such as ruptured cruciate ligaments or fractures of the bones involved in the joints, or may be as the result of a disease that the animal was born with. For example, hip and elbow dysplasia are both common, often inherited conditions usually affecting large breeds of dogs, such as Rottweilers, German Shepherds and Labradors. In these animals the affected joints fail to develop properly, leading to excessive wear and tear and the early development of arthritis. Many pet owners regard the slowing down and stiffness of arthritis as an inevitable part of their animal’s ageing process, but there are certainly many strategies that can be put into place in order to promote healthy joints for as long as possible. These include: Regular exercise of a gentle nature, avoiding overuse and pain but keeping

muscles strong and active. Swimming can be a useful exercise which promotes movement without putting too much strain on joints. Weight management is very important. Excess weight will put more pressure on joints which will exacerbate arthritis. Keeping older pets warm, by allowing them to sleep indoors overnight, and providing soft, comfortable bedding, joint supplements, either oral in the form of powder, tablets or chews, or injectable forms that can be administered by a vet, can also be useful additions to help promote better joint health. If pain in the joints becomes worse with time oral anti-inflammatory medication might be required to help manage this pain. This will need to be supplied by a veterinarian and regular check-ups will be required. Most pets will benefit from a combination of these strategies. A consultation with a vet is always a good idea, in order to provide a full assessment of your pet’s joint health, and to tailor an arthritis management program to their specific needs. • Dr Vogt is senior veterinarian at Animal Aid in Melbourne.

Students join police on challenge course


outhern Mallee students are set to gain fresh perspective on teamwork, trust, relationships and problem solving when they join police officers on a camp near Melbourne next week.

About 20 year-nine teenagers from Hopetoun and Rainbow secondary colleges will head off on Monday for a five-day Victoria Police High Challenge program. The personal-growth program is designed to help provide young people between 13 and 24, who might in some way be disadvantaged by cir-

cumstance, with direction.

also a lot of fun.

Program coordinator Leading Senior Constable Craig Farrell said Police High Challenge had established a relationship with the Hopetoun school for four years and Rainbow for two.

“I’m sure there will be some who find the high-ropes activities we do quite daunting but it’s about us inviting young people to get out of their comfort zones.

“It’s about young people at an impressionable age and in this case from a relatively remote rural area working with police officers through structured activities,” he said. “It’s about breaking down barriers, building relationships and strategies, developing respect and understanding the needs and concerns of others. It can be quite challenging but

Discussion on wine research

“We also have times when we get talk through a lot of issues.”

Camp Sen Const Farrell said a Victoria Police Transport Branch bus would pick the group up on Monday and head to St John Donald Douglas Recreation Camp at Wesburn near Warburton in the Yarra Valley. “There will be a couple

of staff members from each school, High Challenge staff members and police officers involved as well the students,” he said. Michael Williamson from Hopetoun college and Rainbow college principal Robyn Ballinger will be the school representatives. A year-11 group from Hopetoun will be involved in a separate High Challenge Amazing Race program on July 23. Sen Constable Farrell said this program involved visiting various parts of Melbourne to gain understanding of the city and recognising inherit dangers and pitfalls.

ararat ruralcity focus 2013 Draft Rating Strategy

a) Rating Differentials

At the Special Council Meeting held on 6 May 2013, Council adopted in principle the 2013 Draft Rating Strategy. The Draft Rating Strategy is available for viewing at the Municipal Offices, 59 Vincent Street, Ararat or online at

The 2013 Draft Rating Strategy proposes the following rate differentials for the 2013/2014 rating year:

Council’s goal is to ensure the equitable imposition of rates and charges, and in doing this it has considered every option available to it under the Local Government Act. Should any person wish to comment on the Strategy, written submissions must be received prior to 5.15pm on Friday 7 June 2013. Should anyone wish to be heard in support of their submission, they may also be heard by Council at a special meeting to be held at 4pm on 13 June 2013 in the Municipal Offices.

Proposed Rating Differentials

Current Rating Differentials

General Rate



Commercial Rate

160% of General Rate

150% of the General Rate

Industrial Rate

130% of the General Rate

120% of the General Rate

Farm Rate

60% of the General Rate

52.5% of the General Rate

All not-for-profit community groups and clubs within the Ararat Rural City municipality are eligible to apply for Council’s community grants. The Community Grants Program provides funding for projects and activities that build healthy and vibrant communities; sustain important community infrastructure and attract visitors to the area. Community Grants not only help fund important projects, they encourage community groups to work together to share and benefit from the resources available to them.

b) Payment cycle and interest charges for rates

Historical context









Commercial/ Industrial








(current year)

The Council values the contribution our many community groups make to the fabric and vibrancy of our region, and Council feels it is very important to support them in their work.

The following changes are proposed for the payment cycle and interest charges for rates:

The following table summarises how the rate burden has changed over time, using 1995/1996 as the reference year.

(reference year)

Council’s Community Grants Program


A more detailed graph is available at the municipal offices or on council’s website

Under the draft Rating Strategy for 2013 / 2014, Council will no longer offer the option of paying Municipal rates and charges in a lump sum. This change is available to Council under Section 167 (2A) of the Local Government Act 1989. This change will assist Council with its financial management processes, whilst also reducing incidence of “bill shock” amongst our community.


To ease the burden this change may have on some ratepayers, Council will exempt all ratepayers from interest charges that may otherwise apply to the first instalment. This exemption will apply until 30 November 2013. This change is available to Council under Section 172(3) of the Local Government Act 1989.


Furthermore, Council will also provide a 30 day, interest free grace period for late instalments, which will apply from 30 November 2013 to June 30, 2014.

Overall impact The following table summarises the financial impact that the Draft Rating Strategy would have had if it had been applied to Council’s 2012 / 2013 income. In summary, the financial burden on the “General” properties sector has decreased by $324,300 and this is redistributed between Farm, Commercial and Industrial properties.

The applicants must demonstrate that their project: » Encourages community participation and cooperation. » Has positive health, social and environmental outcomes. » Is accessible to people with special needs. » Is well planned and managed. Applications are invited any time during the year, however they are assessed and funding allocated each July, November and March. To make sure your application is in on time for one of these rounds you must have it submitted by: · February 28 for March funding · June 30 for July funding · October 31 for November funding.

Summary The 2013 Draft Rating Strategy document proposes a mixture of rates and charges that will provide the income needed to support the Ararat Rural City Council’s annual operating budget whilst also meeting the tests of equity, efficiency and simplicity. The differentials in this rating strategy were based on factors such as the challenges facing the rural sector, capacity to pay, particularly low income earners and retirees, and the level of rates required for council to fund essential services to the whole community. Developing the annual budget is always an onerous task for Councillors and Council officers, who have spent many hours debating strategies that will meet the criteria. And in order to limit the 2013/2014 rate rise to 7%, Council has worked hard to find reductions in spending of over $1 million.

If your community group is seeking a grant or has an idea for a project, Council’s one-step process means completing one application form. By providing Council with basic information about the funding requirement, your request can be matched with the most appropriate grants program. Council officers can also assist with accessing external grants if required. Council grants are provided on an equal matching dollar for dollar basis. The grants cannot be used to pay for retrospective purchases, or to cover recurrent operating costs, salary subsidies or routine/cyclical maintenance. The grants are allocated on a “one off” basis, and applicants must be not-for-profit organisations or have an auspice body.

Family celebrates lifestyle change

Thursday, May 23, 2013



move to Warracknabeal to run a historic hotel has fulfilled a waterfront dream for former inner-Sydney hair and beauty salon owners Kevin and Sally Gebert.

People snap up residential blocks with views of major rivers and creeks including the Yarriambiack Creek in Warracknabeal and alongside the Wimmera River in towns like Horsham, Dimboola and Jeparit.

THANK YOU FESTIVAL: Warracknabeal’s Commercial Hotel owners Kevin and Sally Gebert with son Cody and, above, the creek environment they will use to celebrate an inaugural Creekside Food Fest. Pictures: CONTRIBUTED

But water views are rare for Wimmera businesses - making Warracknabeal’s Commercial Hotel Scott Street, originally built in 1870, prime real estate. Sally and Kevin bought the rundown hotel in October 2011. Closing for 10 weeks for renovations and continual improvements since then have transformed the hotel into one of the best dining and entertainment venues in the Wimmera. To celebrate its creekside location and the success of their new venture, the Geberts are hosting an inaugural Creekside Food Fest on Sunday. The free event, starting at noon, will feature specialty food marquees in the hotel’s waterfront beer garden. Guests will experience food and wine tasting and live entertainment by musician Craig Somers. There will also be a jumping castle and fireworks at 6.30pm.

should buy it’,” Ms Gebert recalled. “By the time we got home, we’d made all the arrangements. We were selling our business, selling our house and buying a creekside hotel.” When they arrived back in Warracknabeal, they closed the hotel for renovations for 10 weeks; keen to reopen before Christmas.

The name Food Fest builds on Warracknabeal’s successful Y-Fest, which started as a small festival 15 years ago.

“Our son Cody says he has heaps more friends and says there’s lots more to do in Warracknabeal than in Sydney. And for myself and Kevin, the best part is feeling like we are making a valuable contribution to the community.”

Y-Fest has now grown to one of the Wimmera’s biggest Easter events and attracts thousands of people.

It was an Easter weekend trip to visit Kevin’s family that brought on the decision for a ‘creek change’.

“Everywhere you go to socialise and have good times with friends, it’s all about the food. So during this initial 10 weeks while we were making sure we got the ambience and creekside setting right, we also focussed on getting the food right.”

Weekend activities on the creek had the Geberts thinking about escaping the chaotic lifestyle of inner Sydney suburb Balmain for the tranquil creekside setting of Kevin’s hometown.

The Gebert’s confidence in their new venture grew when the hotel won the best food and beverage section in the Powercor Wimmera Business Awards 10 months after opening.

“Kevin went for a walk with his sister Dianne Marchment and when he got back he said to me ‘the Commercial’s for sale and we

Last year they also reached the finals of the Australian Hotels Association Awards for best regional bistro and best refurbishment.

Regular event

Ms Gebert said they hoped the Creekside Food Fest would become another regular event that attracted new people to the town. “Warracknabeal is such a vibrant community and we’re keen to do all we can to promote the town to the broader region,” she said. “With the Yarriambiack Creek and an active community, War-

Managing your super when illness strikes money immediately, while a professional trustee may take several days to release cash.

12 Johnson St, Stawell Ph: 5358 2927 E:

ith a growing trend towards individuals managing their own superannuation through self-managed super funds, the estate planning aspect of SMSFs is becoming an increasingly important issue.


For example, what happens if the trustees or members of the fund are no longer able to fulfil their roles through mental incapacity or sickness? If you are getting on in years, here are some options to consider for your SMSF: 1. Appoint a professional trustee. Giving up full responsibility for the operation can be a good idea but it will involve extra cost. Also, your lifestyle may be affected due to delays in accessing funds. A retiree running his or her own SMSF can access

3. Rollover to a public offer or industry fund. This involves selling or redeeming the SMSF’s assets, so capital gains tax implications need to be considered. Loss of control over the fund’s investment decisions and the investment options avail-

4. Include your children. Once your children are sufficiently mature they may be added as members or trustees of your SMSF. They should then attend all relevant meetings and be involved in the decision-making. Families with more than two children may find this option tricky as SMSFs are currently allowed only four members. Talk to us about the most appropriate option for you to ensure the smooth operation of your SMSF should something happen to you. • Robert Goudie is an authorised representative of Meritum Financial Group Pty Ltd AFSL 245569.

2. Draw up a power of attorney.

Helping memory


nformation sessions at Beulah, Hopetoun and Warracknabeal next week will help southern Mallee and northern Wimmera residents learn how to improve their memory. Rural Northwest Health has organised the Tips and Tricks for Improving Your Memory sessions featuring Anne Kelly from Alzheimer’s Australia.

The sessions, at Beulah Business Information Centre from 4.45pm to 6.30pm on Tuesday, Gateway BEET, Hopetoun from 6pm to 8.30pm next

Wednesday and the Anglican Parish Centre, Warracknabeal from 6pm to 8.30pm next Thursday, follow memory loss and dementia community sessions Ms Kelly presented in September last year. Ms Kelly said being brain healthy was important for everyone. “It doesn’t matter what age you are or whether you’re young, old or in between – to live a brain-healthy life, you need to look after your brain, your body and your heart,” Ms Kelly said.

Thursday, May 23, 2013

“They are all important.” The sessions will cover the use of visual cues in everyday life, training techniques and ways to take care of and improve your memory. Organisers are requesting residents to RSVP to the phone number in the town they will be attending. The numbers are Beulah 5390 2200, Hopetoun 5083 3001 and Warracknabeal 5396 1238. More information is available from Cait Brennan on 5396 1238.

LONGEVITY: Horsham Old Dance and Social Club’s remaining ‘financial and active’ foundation members, from left, Lorna Sanders-Hopper, Noreen King and Harold King are at the centre of the club’s 40th anniversary celebrations. The club, which has had old-time dance nights and promoted dancing at Hamilton Lamb Hall since 1973, is now preparing for Horsham’s annual Ball of Balls on June 7. The Ball of Balls, this year at Horsham Lutheran Hall, has raised more than $71,000 for Guide Dogs Victoria during a 45-year association. Lorna Sanders-Hopper has been club secretary-treasurer for 20 years and Mr King president or vice-president and emcee for 12. Harold and Noreen are also been dance instructors and Noreen has been in charge of floral arrangements and decorations for the ball for many years. The club has dance nights starting 8pm on the first Tuesday of every month and welcomes anyone keen to learn how to dance.  Picture: DEAN LAWSON

Campbells Bridge courts open again Campbells Bridge residents near Stawell have celebrated the re-opening of their tennis courts, wrecked by 2011 flooding. Celebrations included a round-robin competition and a community barbecue at Campbells Bridge Hall. Cr Karen Hyslop from North-

ern Grampians Shire Council and long-time tennis club members Marlene Scantleton, Christobel Hyslop and Lyn Ankerson officially opened the courts

to more social tennis days and friendly competition,” Cr Hyslop said.

“Campbells Bridge residents are glad to have their only sporting facility back in action and are looking forward

The government Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements fund provided $131,000 to rebuild the courts.

“Hopefully this may lead to a team being entered into a local competition in the future.”


Clear stress and blockages

have areas of stress and blockage within your system, you will suffer with symptoms. The symptoms, although unpleasant, are simply indicators telling you that your system is out of balance. What you do from there becomes very important.

The Biofeedback technology we use at Horsham Ultra Health and throughout my health clinics has one main purpose. That is to detect and clear areas of stress and blockage within each person’s system. By clearing and balancing the overloaded areas, natural balance and proper healing is able to take place. The question is, what causes the stress overload and blockages in the first place? With the physical body, there are many causes. Some of the main causes include poor diet, infections, high acidity, and pushing the body too hard. In relation to brain functions, the overload is caused by ongoing mental stress or emotional trauma. The key thing to remember is, when you

Far too many people take something for symptom relief, while leaving the underlying imbalance in place. This is what leads to further, more deep-seated imbalance. It is wise to get symptom relief, but make sure you are effectively addressing the underlying imbalance that has triggered the symptoms in the first place. This is where clearing areas of stress and blockage as they appear is so effective. Clearing the accumulation of stress overload and blockages allows your system to activate its true healing potentials. This is what leads to true health and wellness. • Justin Batt from Horsham Ultra Health can be heard at 8.30am Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays on 3WM.

The Concongella ‘plodder’ thought she’d run the slowest time when she faced the starter in the Telstra Shop Handicap at Horsham on Saturday, but her form before the race: sixth, ninth, third, seventh and tenth was unpredictable. She could think of ‘no rhyme or reason’ why everything clicked into place in the 6.5 kilometre Stawell Amateur Athletic Club race, leading

most of the way and enjoying the luxury of a 1.19 minute winning margin from the Horsham-based runner-up Selina Heard-Price, with Clark’s mentor, veteran Bob Freeland, a further 16 seconds behind. Her time of 32.34 minutes shone like a beacon from her recent efforts over the same distance – about three minutes faster than she posted when ninth in the same race last year.

improvement was a result of a more scientific attitude to training.

Under the tutelage of Bob Freeland, Clark has undertaken intensive ‘speed work’ on a Monday night at Central Park and has also benefited from Rachel Coverdale’s Pump classes at the Stawell YMCA during the week.

And typically she was at a loss to explain how it all happened. “I forgot to bring my water bottle from home, so there must be something in the Horsham water,” she guessed.

“I usually do some exercise every day so I was a bit more rested and it’s obviously made IN THE WATER: Rhonda Clark in action on Saturday. a difference,” she said. Keith Lofthouse 


Mt Gambier success for High Fraar Rounding the home turn Kah showed High Fraar the whip resulting in the fouryear-old kicking strongly and fighting off all challenges put to her by her rivals, to win by a length on the post.

McKenzie Creek trainer Paul Preusker ventured to Mount Gambier last week for the southeast South Australian city’s iconic cup carnival.

On the strength of High Fraar’s latest win and with more wet tracks expected it would be no surprise to see her salute in the southeast on a wet track in the near future.

Vixen hard to catch

Preusker had minor success on Friday with a placing but had to wait until the last event on Sunday to score a win.

Stawell trainer Paul Jones made the three-hour trek to last Friday’s Geelong meeting on the synthetic track with his galloper Spanish Vixen.

The Horsham stable saddled up hit and miss galloper High Fraar for a 1550- metre handicap with leading SA apprentice jockey Jamie Kah in charge of riding duties.

Jones put the polish on his four-yearold mare for a staying event over 1900 metres employing the services of former Queensland apprentice jockey Ryan Hurdle.

The bay mare was considered a $7.50 chance with the crow-eater bagmen just before the starter called the capacity field into line.

Sleepy Hollow punters favoured other runners in the race thus reflecting Spanish Vixen’s price of $7.50 in the bookies’ ring.

Once the starting stalls crashed open High Fraar made good use of her inside barrier bouncing out well and rolling straight to the lead. Kah was able to dictate and run the race to suit herself and approaching the 600m marker, the daughter of 1993 Caulfield Cup winner Fraar, looked to be bolting on the sloppy track conditions.

Once the race was underway the young apprentice jockey positioned Spanish Vixen in the box seat taking up the advantage from his inside barrier. Nearing the 600m mark the bay mare was poised to pounce showing a liking for the artificial Geelong track. The daughter of Emirates Park stallion Al Samer was cruising coming to the home

Lifting tempo key for interleague HORSHAM DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE



“We’re looking pretty strong at this stage. More senior players have put their hands up this year and we will be going in pretty confident,” he said early this week.

et in first for the football, work for each other and get it quickly into the forward line!’

“We need to try to move our VCFL ranking and definitely have the calibre of players to do that.”

That will be the general message from Horsham District Football League team leaders in a ripper twilight country championships clash in Horsham on Saturday. Horsham District takes on Loddon Valley in an interleague clash as part of a double-header at Horsham City Oval and needs to win to improve its standing in country Victorian football. Joint coach and centre half back Josh Mibus said players could expect a considerable lift in tempo from club football and would have to be prepared to quickly settle into the groove. “There should be a decent crowd and a pretty good atmosphere playing under lights. I have never played under lights before and plenty of other district league blokes won’t have either and with those facilities the stage is set for us to have a crack,” he said. “The key in this sort of football is to be first at the ball. It is a different class of footy and our basic message will be get in first for the ball, work for each other and work in numbers. We must be able to get the ball quickly into attack.” Selectors were confronted with a tough job during the week as a prospective team chopped and changed with news filtering in about injured or unavailable players. But Mibus was confident that the league would put a ‘more than handy’ line-up on the ground.

The Horsham District team is likely to feature a mix of aerial and goal-kicking strength and talented runners and ball winners.

Strong mix

The goal-to-goal lines appears particularly strong with Kalkee spearhead Josh Beddison slotting into the square and Laharum’s big-marking Shannon Argall at centre half forward. Mibus will hold down his traditional centre half back post, Chris Oliver might have the critical job at full back and joint coach Tim Wade will take on rucking duties in the middle. There is plenty of sting alongside Beddison and Argall with Edenhope-Apsley leader James Dixon Rupanyup’s Glenn Wyatt and talented ball-winner and critically experienced Steve Schultz. Throw in Jarred Combe and it becomes a wildly potent attacking group. Tim Friend, in form for Natimuk and Laharum’s Sam Winfield will provide dash from half back with Jake Goodes and Ash Pekin round off the defensive group. Wade is likely to have Dave McLeish working with Harrow-Balmoral leader Brent Forsyth, Swifts’ duo Owen Phillips and Scott Carey and in-form Natimuk player Shaun McDonald through the middle. The game is scheduled to start at 5pm and is part of a huge day of interleague football starting with juniors in the morning.

Gaps starting to appear in Mininera top five MININERA DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE By JONATHAN BOX

With round seven set to start in Mininera and District Football League this weekend some breathing space is starting to emerge between the top five teams on the ladder. Wickliffe-Lake Bolac is the only team that remains undefeated after Glenthompson-Dunkeld went down to SMW Rovers in a 62-point smashing from the Bulldogs.

This week Glenthompson-Dunkeld will take on Wickliffe-Lake Bolac in what looms as another possible loss because the Magpies have found tremendous form.

William Archer has been a massive inclusion for the Magpies, being on the league goal-kicking list most weeks and having already kicked 23 for the season. Last week Archer kicked three goals as one of 10 goal scorers in a 50-point victory over LismoreDerrinallum. Coach Nicholas Willox added to the goal-scoring with four of his own, while brothers Josh and James Keys contributed three apiece.

Glenthompson-Dunkeld’s loss would have a come as a shock to the Rams who had been undefeated for the first five rounds.

Michael Uebergang did all he could, kicking three goals and being one of the Rams’ best players. Glen Darroch, David Walkley and Ty Gilmore were also among GlenthompsonDunkeld’s best, but unfortunately their efforts were to no avail. Wickliffe-Lake Bolac seem to be building at this season’s powerhouse will prove very tough to beat. This week Tatyoon travels to Great Western with both teams having varied starts to the season. Great West-

ern was going well while Tatyoon had failed to register a win, yet both teams’ seasons have turned around. Great Western has had a couple of losses and Tatyoon has scored its third consecutive win. Tatyoon’s most recent victory came at the expense of Woorndoo-Mortlake in a 78-point win.

Great Western, coming off last week’s loss to Moyston-Willaura, will be looking to better players Robert Vaughan, Nathan Cocks and Nicholas McCartney along with goal scorer Nathan Shalders, with four goals last week, to fire on all cylinders to try and help their team back onto the winners’ list.

Aidan Bell is rekindling last year’s form in front of goal, having last week booted six, and Tyler Cronin contributed four to see them both named in Tatyoon’s best. Sean McDougall also continues to put in a massive effort, producing another strong performance for the Hawks.

In other games across the league, Lismore-Derrinallum takes on Moyston-Willaura, Woorndoo-Mortlake hosts Hawkesdale-Macarthur, Ararat takes on Penshurst and SMW Rovers, coming off a good win last week, travels to Caramut to play a side fresh from a win over Ararat.

Big W hunts for interleague win mix for his work in the clinches and Dimboola’s Daniel Baker will provide safe hands and feet from the defensive side of the square.



Dalziel revealed that the build-up he and coaching off-sider Stuart Farr had adopted was similar to approaching a grand final.


immera Football League leaders will bank on a gilt-edged line-up and solid preparation this weekend to win its reputation back as a country championships force.

The Big W is on a mission to resurrect its statewide standing and a representative side taking on Casey-Cardinia League will boast muscle, talent and form. The Wimmera League game is the first on the interleague card on Saturday before Horsham District League plays Loddon Valley League in a twilight encounter. Of critical note for the Wimmera League this weekend will be the potency of its forward line, which features height, strength and obvious goal-kicking ability. Warrack Eagles’ Peter Weir, Horsham joint coach Jordyn Burke and fellow Demon Dylan Parish are set to provide a three-pronged attacking backbone to work alongside the likes of inform Ash Clugston, Horsham Saints wildcard Jacob Cooke-Harrison, Minyip-Murtoa dasher Jayden Beaumont and Josh Rentsch from Dimboola.

Height and hardness Wimmera coach Louie Dalziel said height and hardness in attack were crucial for success. “Ash Clugston is in stellar form and Dylan Parish might push up the ground to float through the forward 50. We’ll see how it pans out,” he said. The Wimmera’s defensive lines, meanwhile, have all the hallmarks of a smash-and-grab unit with several proven 50-50 contest winners winning a guernsey. The steadying resolve of Garry Hallam, who Dalziel considers is in career-best form, and team vice-captain Phil Butsch are set to combine with ball-magnet Damian Cameron from Horsham RSL, dashing Demon Tyler Blake and Stawell last-line defender Jorah Margetson. Nathan Clough from the Saints might also be in the

“A lot of people say the next best thing to winning a grand final is representing your league. While we will have a touch more flare and be not as conservative as we might be in preparing for a grand final the principles will be relatively similar,” he said. “We’ve had a campaign going for six to eight weeks and we haven’t altered our approach from the launch to the last training run. All the guys feel like it’s their own club they are representing.” Horsham’s Nick Pekin is captaining the team and with Minyip-Murtoa’s John Delahunty and Dimboola’s Clancy Bennett will work under the rucking prowess of Dimboola’s Justin Chilver. John Wood, also from Horsham, will make his representative debut on a wing and Dimboola stalwart Al McKinnon is set top provide experience out of the centre. Championship regular Clinton Midgley is the only unlikely starter through injury. Horsham duo Jordyn Burke, left, and Dylan Parish will form a three-pronged attack with Warrack Eagles spearhead Peter Weir for the Big W in Country Championships clash with Casey-Cardinia Football League.

Likely BIG W line-up

Casey-Cardinia will be a hard nut to crack considering the potential talent it might bring to the Wimmera. Justin Berry was VCFL vice-captain last year, Scott Meyer is talented ruck man and Mark Holt kicked 159 goals for Cranbourne last year. Steve O’Brien has played with Casey Scorpions and is a former Gippsland Power captain and Narre Warren pair Mick Scanlon and Michael Collins have good reputations.

A senior game starts at 2pm in a jam-packed program that also features under-18 and under-17 curtain raisers at 10am and noon respectively as well as the Horsham District League twilight match. A Wimmera League 1988 country championships premiership reunion in the Horsham clubrooms will start early in the afternoon.

Mallee on the hunt for four on the trot MALLEE FOOTBALL LEAGUE By MICK SHANNON

Mallee Football League will be looking to make it four wins in a row when it takes on Central Murray League in the Worksafe Country Championships at Swan Hill this Saturday. In the last three years Mallee has overcome Horsham District, North Central and Wimmera and now finds itself 14th on the VCFL champi-

onships table, one behind Central Murray. Col Durie will again coach the team and will look to continue on with the same success that he has experienced over the past few seasons. Beulah co-coach Gareth Hose will be assisting over what is sure to be another strong Mallee side. Unfortunately for Mallee fans there have been several injuries to key players before the big clash but there will still be a lot of talent running through the team. Stephen Lyons will look to lead the backline; with his strong pres-

ence at centre half back sure to make life hard for Central Murray’s key forwards.

Kim Hallam and Luke Spasic look set to fill out the other key defensive roles, while the hard-running Tom Summerhayes will supply Mallee with dash and skill off the half backline. Young Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers ruckman Dan McEwen will have a huge job in supplying first use of the ball to onballers Durie and Trent Donnan, with other midfielders Liam Price and Darcy Ryan looking to filter through the centre at some point.

The Mallee team will look to use their speed on the wings to break the lines with the silky Jerry Wilson and Mitchell Taylor holding down the wing positions.

Up forward stands Mallee’s most prominent figure in Damian Cupido who will be keen to make his presence felt. Cupido has kicked 52 goals in six outings so far this season, including a massive 17-goal haul. If he and other gun forward Cliff Ryan can get on top then the Mallee will be a huge chance of claiming victory, especially with Dale Shannon and Deek

Be part of Breuers



Roberts lurking around their feet.

Central Murray will field a strong team that will hit in hard and not leave anything behind. But the Mallee boys are pumped up to make it four in a row and will consider themselves a big chance of taking Central Murray down. The game represents the first time the two leagues have clashed. Good luck to all players who have made it into the final team, let’s hope Mallee can keep its fantastic interleague form going. Interleague action will also include an under-17 clash.

Expert: Self-braking cars cut toll C

ar-makers need to move faster with the roll-out of selfbraking cars to make significant inroads on Australia’s road toll, a safety expert has warned.

cars and pedestrians, such as cameras, radar and ‘lidar’ – using laser beams to map out a 3D representation of the road ahead of the car.

Prof Anderson said it would help car-makers if all were to adopt the one technology, so that a single module would suit all vehicles in the same way almost all cars use the same electronic stability control module as a key part of their safety system.

Associate Professor Robert Anderson, deputy director of the University of Adelaide’s Centre for Automotive Safety Research, warned it could be as late as 2020 before the real-world benefits of cars that can sense a collision and either reduce or avoid it would have a positive impact on our roads. He said active braking had the same potential as the introduction of seatbelts, airbags and even electronic stability control in dramatically reducing the death toll on Australian roads. “With ESC – electronic stability control, which helps a car recover from a skid – it was quite a few years before we saw any effects on the road toll, because at the start not every car had it,” Prof Anderson said. “You have to wait for quite a few years before you see data in the real world, so I would predict you would see the data from active braking coming through by 2019 or 2020 before we have enough information to say it is working.” Key to that, he said, was encouraging car-makers to roll the systems out more rapidly than they were now, so

Next step

IT STARTS HERE: University of Adelaide researcher Professor Robert Anderson says active braking needs to be on more cars a lot sooner to help cut the road toll.

that the number of cars on Australian roads featuring active braking systems built quickly. “ESC tends to be an old car problem with a loss of control by particularly young drivers. It’s taken a long time for the data from loss-of-control crashes to come through so we can pick it up,” Mr Anderson said. “Active braking crashes tend to be very different types of crashes, particularly if pedestrians are involved, and with critical mass we could pick up the data a lot more quickly.” He said the university was developing a crash test program to allow it

to rank how well these new systems were working, although devising the right test to weigh up a system’s performance was still in its infancy worldwide. “It’s still at a stage where I think crash testing was many years ago, back to the 1970s when crash tests were first being developed,” he said. In the meantime, the only way that independent crash test authorities such as ANCAP could reward carmakers for including technology that can potentially avoid hurting other road users – including pedestrians – is by giving vehicles a leg-up in their final score, Prof Anderson said.

“To be fair, giving bonus points is not really scientific, but we felt we had to start encouraging car-makers to include those sorts of technologies,” he said. “It was the best thing we could think of at the time.” However, this complicates things when, for instance, car-makers provide a vehicle with anti-crash technology, but down on the airbag count. It also doesn’t account for factors such as wet-weather braking performance, where low-rolling resistance tyres sometimes struggle. Also complicating things is a number of different technologies using varied methods of detecting other

He said the next step was to break through the systems’ low-speed thresholds to make them work at any speed. “It’s the high speeds that are the greatest risk of death and injury to road users,” Prof Anderson said. “We’d like to see these systems developed so they work at all speeds, and not just low speeds. “Everyone has got different systems and different ways of doing things, but in the end we just want them to work as programmed.” A number of car-makers including Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, Subaru and Volkswagen have introduced active braking on vehicles priced from as low as $13,990 before on-road costs.

Taking Ford EcoSport for a spin A

ustralia’s burgeoning subcompact city SUV market is poised to heat up in a big way over the next 12 months, and Ford’s Fiesta-based EcoSport will be right in the thick of the action.

will have voice control, Bluetooth audio and ‘emergency assistance’, which calls paramedics and reports GPS co-ordinates in a crash.

We’ve wanted to drive the tiny triple for a while now – it won last year’s International Engine of the Year award and will be added to the Fiesta range by year’s end – and first impressions are strong, with one notable caveat.

The high-riding light hatch will arrive in showrooms at the end of this year, kicking off around the low$20,000 mark – at least $5000 beneath the larger Kuga – and going toe-to-toe with several all-new rivals to be launched in the coming months. Australians will by year’s end have a choice between such micro-sized SUVs as the Holden Trax, Opel Mokka, Nissan Juke, Peugeot 2008 – as well as the EcoSport – with the chic Renault Captur to follow a few months later. All of these models are smaller and will be cheaper than more established small and compact SUVs, and are not seen as traditional family car replacements like their larger siblings, but rather as jacked-up versions of the city-sized micro-cars on which most of them are based. Car-makers have been down this road before – the Daihatsu Terios and original Holden Cruze, based on the Suzuki Ignis, spring to mind – but it seems the world has finally come around to the idea in earnest, with much of this push coming from


SHIFT UP: The tiny 1.0-litre threecylinder turbo engine available in the EcoSport is a ripper, but the lack of an auto option will hurt sales, with self-shifters consigned to an older atmo 1.5 petrol.

developing nations: the EcoSport is made in India and was developed in Brazil. It may still be more than half a year away from our shores, but we’ve been given an opportunity to spend some time behind the wheel in the subcontinent. Ford’s focus on emerging markets is obvious. The EcoSport has 200mm of ground clearance and more than 550mm of wading depth – which the company says is perfect for monsoonal weather and dodgy roads. However, the car will eventually go on sale in more than 100 countries, including most of Europe, where

Ford will instead leverage its high driving position and chunky wagon styling – replete with an old-school spare wheel on the tailgate – as key selling points to urban dwellers. The EcoSport looks terrific in the metal. It would be stretch to call its styling macho, but not a stretch to label it a shrunken Territory, especially from the front. The lack of an underfloor spare naturally adds depth to the loading space. With the 60:40 split-fold rear seats tumbled forward, there is more than 705 litres of capacity – enough, as Ford oddly points out, for a fairsized washing machine.

The instrument fascia is the same as that in the entry-level Focus and Kuga. Everything is situated where it should be, but our test car had a few minor quality niggles and the surfaces themselves were hard and a little cheap.

Ford has no plans to offer any gearbox other than a five-speed manual, since most large EcoSport markets favour DIY transmissions. The unit lacks a ratio, and is subsequently geared tall, but the shift action is well-weighted and positive. Yet the lack of an automatic will make it hard for Ford Australia to market the 1.0-litre as its ‘premium’ offering in Australia, where automatics dominate SUV sales, despite the engine’s sophistication.

We are told the cars we drove were pre-production prototypes, meaning they were almost – but not quite – representative of stock that will roll into Australian dealerships.

The fact the Ford is sourced in India means it ought to undercut its European rivals, and its chic styling, sharp dynamics and roomy cabin indicate it should give them a shake-up.

Commendably, Ford’s promise to trickle its effective Microsoft-developed Sync infotainment system down to even the lower reaches of its range has come to fruition. All EcoSports

But the lack of an auto option with the so-called ‘flagship’ EcoBoost turbo engine is certain to hurt sales. Mike Costello

HSV uncovers new Gen-F details H

olden Special Vehicles has officially uncovered its new VF Commodore-based Gen-F high-performance model range, including the mighty supercharged GTS flagship that was caught on camera in an exclusive exposé by GoAuto.

FINE VINTAGE: Long wheel-base Grange brings luxury to the HSV range.

Much of the HSV’s sheetmetal still comes from Holden – including difficult-to-change, high-cost parts such as the aluminium bonnet and bootlid – but the new performance range wears a significantly reworked nose and rear end, upgraded brakes, cutting-edge suspension and all-new rubber to help it all stick to the road. The HSV range sports a design to give it a low, menacing stance on the road. The non-executive cars retain the now-traditional twin-nostril grille of the previous range, sitting above a trapezoidal lower airdam that looks very similar to the mouth of the Ford Mondeo, only inverted.

Inside, there are cloth sports seats with four-way electric adjustment for the driver, and carbon-fibre-look trim. The instrument binnacle is completely redesigned for the HSV cars, including a much clearer tacho and speedo. A pair of gauges mounted low on the centre console show battery voltage and oil pressure, while the centre console between the front seats houses a dial that allows the driver to easily switch between a newly introduced ‘touring’ mode, a more performance-focused ‘sport’ setting that weighs up the ClubSport’s steering, and a ‘competition’ mode that winds back all the electronic aids.

Australia’s fastest production Commodore will feature a 430kW/740Nm supercharged 6.2-litre V8 under its bonnet, although HSV has now revealed that the jewel in the heavily upgraded Gen-F series will go on sale in September – three months after the rest of the range. While most of HSV’s range of sedans, wagons, utes and long-wheelbase limousines will start to roll out of showrooms in mid-June, an engineering hiccup means its hero model – which can even park itself, with a little help – will not be available until later in the year.

of power and 550Nm of torque.

HSV has used the long, curved line above the headlights to build up shape on the bumper on either side of the airdam, while big blacked-out inserts house the foglights and a strip of LED daytime running lights that stay on even when the headlights are activated to give a distinctive nighttime signature. The side profile remains very Commodore-like, with only a blacked-out cosmetic grille on the guard and, on higher models, changes to the rocker panel. The less-prominent wheelarches have given HSV a helping hand, with the wider tyres filling the well better than previous generations. Down the rear, twin-lens LED taillights continue with the HSV theme,

and big, blacked-out diffusers, featuring the same deep-cut ‘V’ look as the front, house big chrome-tipped exhausts.

version HSV will get remote starting so, on a hot day, the car will fire itself up and run the air-conditioner before you even get to the door.

Standard features across the range reflect many of the running changes introduced to the VF Commodore, with a few HSV-inspired twists.

HSV’s touches include a ‘driver preference dial’ that allows the driver to select different suspension settings and steering weights, a launch control program for the six-speed manual cars, and 20-inch alloy wheels that shed kilos of weight despite growing to 8.5 inches in width down the front, and 9.5 inches down the rear. Brakes are also beefier, and wear bigger, harder compound pads.

Carried across from Commodore are the MyLink entertainment system with satellite navigation, foglights, an electric parking brake, keyless entry and start, front and rear parking sensors, a blind-spot warning system and Holden’s semi-automated parking that can pick a spot and then automatically steer the car into it. Buyers of a six-speed automatic

The entry-level ClubSport, and its radically changed Maloo ute equivalent, come equipped with the LS3 6.2-litre V8 engine producing 317kW

The brakes run to four-piston forged aluminium callipers that alone cut half a kilogram of weight over the old cast units. The entry-level Maloo is fitted with a soft tonneau cover instead of the hard cover provided for the higherpriced load-luggers. Incidentally, the Maloo features a radically redesigned ‘sailplane’ – the winged area behind the cockpit – to increase rearward visibility, which was identified as a bit of a problem in the E-Series it replaces. Stepping up to the ClubSport R8 sedan, ute or wagon introduces a mild change under the bonnet, with the LS3’s output stepping up to 325kW. Torque is unchanged at 550Nm.

VW’s outrageously styled Golf supercar concept Volkswagen generally pulls the covers from something outlandish at the annual Wörthersee fan festival in Austria, and this year was no exception. How does a maniacal 370kW/650kW Golf V6 concept racer for the road sound? Volkswagen has called it the GTI Design Vision concept, and says it could theoretically roll up to a racing series tomorrow. Wörthersee is something of a Mecca for Volkswagen enthusi-

asts, and it appears the Design Vision concept is one for them. Don’t expect to see anything quite like this on the road in the near future. Under the nose sits a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6, perhaps a nod to roadgoing Golf V6s of the past, which feeds power to all four wheels via a DSG dual-clutch transmission. It’s enough to launch the car from zero to 100km/h in just 3.9 seconds, according to Volkswa-


gen, while massive front and rear discs – 380mm/356mm – with red callipers are employed to scrup off the new-found pace. The outrageously styled concept has a far more aggressive stance than the regular roadgoing GTI – it’s 15mm shorter, 71mm wider and 57mm lower – and gets a sinister new nose design, bulging haunches and rather radical racing-style cockpit. Mike Costello © GoAutoMedia, 2013


EVIL EYE: The Golf GTI-based concept is one wild mother.
