MAKING A STAND: Horsham police officers Constable Anthony Zivkovic, Acting Inspector Brendan Broadbent and Sergeant Jason Bergen warn of a â€˜no toleranceâ€™ approach to assault-related incidents. Picture: MICK SHANNON
Police declaring â€˜zero toleranceâ€™ to assaults P
By DEAN LAWSON
olice have declared war on criminal assault across the Wimmera and taken a no-tolerance stance against people responsible for assault-related incidents.
Horsham Acting Inspector Brendan Broadbent said police were â€˜fed upâ€™ with attending both family and nonfamily violence assaults in the region and would take firm action to stamp it out. He said Horsham police, in response to the criminal activity, had established a Family Violence and Crime Reduction team to specifically deal with the issue and provide follow-up support for frontline police officers. â€œWe are adopting a no-toler-
ance approach toward people who are intent on ignoring the laws to commit violence against other people,â€? Acting Inspector Broadbent said. â€œPolice intend to make a stand to confront this issue head on.â€? Acting Inspector Broadbent said a series of incidents had highlighted a need for police to take a stand.
â€œWeâ€™ve had an elderly man assaulted in the streets of Horsham, an incident that escalated out of hand during a local sporting event and each weekend police are called to disputes between people in and around licensed premises and in many residential locations,â€? he said. â€œThe new crime team will be looking at all options available to deal with people who
and applied to each violent crime committed.â€?
â€œWe are determined to ensure the real offenders committing these crimes are dealt with according to the full letter of the law.â€?
Acting Inspector Broadbent said police were also asking for community help to stamp out violence in the Wimmera.
Licensees Acting Inspector Broadbent said Horsham district police would work closely with licensees through a licensing accord to deal with assaults in and around licensed premises. He said this was to make sure all incidents of assault were subject to investigation and offenders banned from licensed premises. â€œWe will be paying specific attention to recidivist offenders of assault by ensuring all avenues to obtain a satisfactory outcome are investigated
â€œPeople can contact police to report any assaults they see. They can do this by ringing their local police station or police emergency number â€˜000â€™ or by contacting crime stoppers on 1800 333 000,â€? he said. He added that police would also be working with government departments such as the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria and welfare agencies such as Wimmera Uniting Care and Grampians Community Health to reduce assaults and to provide avenues such as mediation and counselling to resolve disputes.

Arts win for Nati YOUR HEATING Solution
he evolution of Natimuk as a regional hotbed for the arts has gained momentum with the Horsham district settlement winning a $350,000 State Government grant. Natimuk is one of five regional Victorian towns to receive the Regional Arts Victoria grant as part of a Small Towns Transformation program. The money will go towards creating artworks in a community public space. Regional Arts Victoria director Esther Anatolitis said the plans of the five towns selected in the program ‘exemplify bold artistic vision, intensive community participation, and strong commitment to creative place-making’.
Thursday, May 30, 2013
The aim of Small Town Transformations is to ‘celebrate the ideas, creativity and resourcefulness in Victoria’s small towns, asking communities to envisage how the arts can effect change, improve infrastructure and opportunities, and help to realise local aspirations’.

Arapiles Community Theatre applied for the grant and theatre president Martin Bride said community response to an application process was overwhelming. Arapiles Community Theatre is a not-forprofit, incorporated arts body that has been operating in Natimuk for 24 years. The group supports artists and works to develop an appreciation of the arts within the community. It produces events including the Natimuk Frinj and Goat Fest.

New name during Food Fest Warracknabeal’s historic Commercial Hotel is now called The Creekside Hotel. Hotel owners Kevin and Sally Gebert used an inaugural Creekside Food Fest on the banks of Yarriambiack Creek last weekend to announce the change. The Geberts moved to Warracknabeal from the innerSydney suburb of Balmain in October 2011. The hotel has been known as ‘The Commercial’ since 1870. About 500 people from the Wimmera and beyond attended the Food Fest, which capped off a big week in the northern Wimmera town. The Food Fest featured five specialty food marquees and 13 different types of food in the hotel’s waterfront beer
garden. Musician Craig Somers provided entertainment while a jumping castle, juggling performer and lolly table were popular with children. The Creekside Food Fest builds on the town’s Y-Fest, which started 15 years ago and is now one of the Wimmera’s biggest Easter events. Sally Gerbert said she and Kevin were happy to end to the week with a relaxing day out that also showcased ‘a terrific vibrant community.’ “Anyone who knows Kevin and I know that we don’t do things by halves. Once we started talking about having a food festival to launch our new name, we didn’t hold back. And we can’t wait to host another one,” she said. “Our vision since buying the hotel was to create a premier dining and entertainment ven-

ue that offers so much more than your traditional hotel. “Our long-term business planning led us to the conclusion a name change was an important step in our growth.” Ms Gebert said the name ‘The Creekside Hotel’ encapsulated the venue simply and succinctly. “We are a hotel and we are beside the Yarriambiack Creek. The name fits perfectly,” she said.

“It has extra significance because the creek played an important part in our decision to move here in the first place. Moving to the Wimmera has been life-changing move for our family.”

Building on strengths
By DEAN LAWSON
he Nationals candidate for the Federal seat of Mallee Andrew Broad was spot on when he said that Australia had to ‘play to its strengths’ to rejuvenate manufacturing in the country. Mr Broad, in a frank interview with The Weekly Advertiser, said in response to a question about the demise of Ford in Geelong, that opportunities remained, not only in Australia, but Victoria and the Mallee electorate. Mr Broad, a board member
of Australian Made, Australian Grown, agreed the loss of Ford car-making in Victoria was a disaster. But he said people had to look beyond the disappointment and consider a different direction. “At the end of the day we have to play to our strengths and to understand that we can’t compete on a wage base with Asia,” he said. “But, we are very good at so many other areas of manufacturing. We have an enormous amount of creativity and expertise that we’re already seeing in everything from furniture and high-grade piping to the wing tips of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. There
is a lot of opportunity if we get it right.” Identifying international need and responding with products that require specialist knowhow without the burden of heavy labour requirements seems an obvious direction for the future of Australian manufacturing.
Small players It might be that the relatively small player on the Australian manufacturing landscape, depending on a vast range of circumstances, might ultimately cut a path through what seems an impregnable world of competition. These small players, some of which help form the back-
bones of some of our rural centres, need governments to make it as easy as possible for them to be productive and competitive. This means developing affordable service accessibility and exploring ways to remove any barriers. Mr Broad was right when he also said one of the keys in exploiting Australia’s manufacturing potential was reducing the cost and complications of doing business in Australia. If we are smart enough to come up with products that can meet a demand here and overseas then surely we can be smart enough to create an economic environment that allows it to happen.

Farmers fuming over ‘serious’ rate burden
rarat district farmers have demanded ‘answers’ from Ararat Rural City Council over what it claims is a ‘serious’ rates discrepancy.
They argue that the council has ‘slugged its farming ratepayers’ with a $654,400 rate hike, despite signing off on half the increase in a Draft Rating Strategy. “It was bad enough when we found out the rating strategy was going to shift $316,700 of the rates burden off residential ratepayers onto farmers,” Victorian Farmers Federation member David Hucker said. “But now we’ve discovered council officers have drafted a budget that more than doubles the burden to $654,400.” The Ararat council released an official statement last week outlining why the draft 2013 strategy proposed to increase the farm rate from 52.5 percent of the general rate to 60 percent. Mayor Cr Ian Wilson said the proposed change would result in a redistribution of the rate burden with the general sector responsible for 51 percent of the rate burden, down from 54 percent, and the farming sector paying 40 percent, up from 37 percent. He said it was important to consider for issue from an historical context. “In 1995 farmers were carrying 46 percent of the rate burden, due to strong increases in farm land valuations. In order
to address this, the council made changes to the farm differential over a number of years, which brought this down to a more reasonable level,” he said.
“Of more recent times farm valuations have dropped, leading to a situation where in 2012-13 farmers were only carrying 37 percent of the rate burden, and the current proposal is to move this back to 40 percent. “This is not unreasonable, or unfair, it is the council merely adjusting the differentials to achieve the best outcomes for the whole of the community, having regard to the long-term and cumulative effects. This is what the council is required to do under the Local Government Act 1989.”
Shift Cr Wilson said under the proposed strategy, the average farm assessment would pay $374 more and the average residential assessment $14 more in 2013-14 as part of an overall seven percent rate rise. But Mr Hucker said page 56 of the draft budget showed the council wanted to lift the rates burden on the shire’s 500 farming families running 1733 rural properties from $4,089,300 to $4,743,700. “That’s a $1300 increase in just one year, raising their rates burden on the average farming family to $9487. How the hell is that fair?” Mr Hucker said. “Are our councillors aware they signed off on the draft rating strategy that shifted

Health service celebration draws near
Organisers of a reunion celebrating Hopetoun’s health services are reminding people they need to book tickets by the end of this week. The Hopetoun community will celebrate 70 years of public health services on June 8 and 9. Rural Northwest Health campus manager Melissa Cook, 0417 108 857, is taking bookings.
$316,700 of the rate burden onto farmers, but now it’s been doubled to $654,400? We want answers. “We call on council to re-draft the budget and honour past commitments to keep the farm rate at 52.5 percent of the residential rate.”
Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell said the Ararat council’s proposed differential rate categories were consistent with ministerial guidelines.
CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENT DESTRUCTION
But she added that the guidelines ‘recognised the important role of agriculture’ and that ‘councils should give consideration to providing reduced differential rates for farming land’. “Under the Local Government Act 1989, councils are obligated to publish their draft budgets and seek community feedback through a statutory 28-day public consultation process,” she said. “I encourage Ararat Rural City farmers and ratepayers to consider the draft budget, talk to their councillors and to make submissions to the council during the public consultation period.” People can provide written comments on the strategy before 5.15pm, Friday week. They can also support their submission with an address to the council at a special meeting at Ararat municipal offices at 4pm on June 13. The VFF also has is a petition calling for a Parliamentary Inquiry into rural rating. The petition is on the VFF website.

Book mixes river, art and culture
orsham mayor Cr David Grimble will launch a new book on Sunday that links art, culture and nature to tell stories about the Wimmera River.
The riverside launch of Yanga Track…Wanjab, Gadjin and Murnong will be at Sawyer Park as part of the Art Is… of the Land Festival at noon on Sunday. The coffee-table book is a joint project of Horsham Rural City Council, Wimmera Catchment Management Authority and Barengi Gadjin Land Council. The book, written by Melissa Pouliot and designed by Jackie Peacock, features artwork by Wotjobaluk Elder Aunty Nancy Harrison and Aboriginal artist Louie Rigney. It also contains a Flora Guide by Rae Talbot

means ‘to walk’. Murnong, or yam daisy, is mentioned more than any other plant as being an important food for Aboriginal people in south-east Australia.
The story is centred on Yanga Track, a popular walking tracks beside the Wimmera River in Horsham.
Author Melissa Pouliot said it was the first Wimmera publication that told the story of the river from several perspectives through a combination of art, Aboriginal culture and a plant guide.
A barbecue lunch and stencilling workshop using Aunty Nancy Harrison’s artwork from the book will follow the launch. Mayor Cr David Grimble said many people contributed to what he described as a unique and special publication.
“This book is inspired by the story of the native plants which were the medicine chest, hardware store and supermarket of the Aboriginal people,” she said.
“The end result is something the whole Wimmera community, Horsham Rural City Council, the CMA and the Barengi Gadjin Land Council can be really proud of,” Cr Grimble said.
and native animals and how they all link to Aboriginal culture.
The title Yanga Track…Wanjab, Gadjin and Murnong refers to the significance of fire, floods
In Aboriginal Wergaia language Wanjab means ‘fire’, Gadjin means ‘water’ and Yanga
“It uses fire and flood as the impetus for exploring some of the Wimmera’s early history and highlighting the fascinating stories of how Aboriginal communities used these plants in their everyday lives.”

The project, commissioned by Horsham Rural City Council and School Focused Youth Services through Wimmera Uniting Care, has involved weekly school ‘club’ art and
writing workshops. A group of young people aged between nine and 19 has been busy working on poetry and a colourful wall design with Wimmera artist Mars Drum in Army Lane between Thipatiys café and Horsham Disposals. About half of the participants have lived in refugee camps oversees and their chalk work reflects connections based on ‘where they come from, where they are now and where they are going’. The project also includes selections of poetry, which will be used in plaques on seats and walls in Horsham shopping precinct. A project launch will be in Army lane on Saturday in mid June.
Drum, who has had four solo oil-painting exhibitions and travelled overseas extensively, has worked with refugees in Amsterdam and teaching African immigrants in London language schools. WOW writing team members: P’Leah Htoo Po Kyaut, 10, Soe Son Di Shwe Ta Lee, 11, Harrison Htoo Po Kyaut, 12, Karen community; Madhu Annathuraz, 10, Indian; Buket Akiz, 11, Yaren Akiz, 9, Turkish; Hozaira Ahmad, 9, Pakistani; Bernad Ngendakumana, 12, Sentia Kamikaze, 15, Burundi; Shauna Stringer, 15, Irish; Tina Kalenzo, 18, Yvonne Ndayikeze, 19, Tanzanian; Yasmine Harradine, 11, Indigenous Australian.

Large aircraft for Stawell miners
emand has forced an aircraft charter group providing a Fly In Fly Out charter service for Stawell miners to base a 10-seat passenger aircraft at Stawell Airport.
AGA Group, based at Stawell and operating 14 aircraft in various roles through Victoria and southern NSW, is flying miners to and from remote Australian mining locations.
senger aircraft fleet to four and provided more flexibility and costeffective options for customers. He said the new 10-seat aircraft included much more seating room and luggage capacity than previous aircraft. “Being fully air-conditioned, it really improves the passenger comfort when departing from those hot locations in central NSW,” he said.
The FIFO project, a response to the impending closure of Stawell Gold Mine later this year, has sparked interest from mine employees and contractors keen to continue working in the mining industry while maintaining Stawell as a home base.
“Also, having those extra seats is allowing us to meet the increased demand of moving more people at once.”
AGA Group managing director Rob Boschen said the addition of the 10-seat Piper Chieftain aircraft had increased the company’s pas-
Increasing air traffic at Stawell Airport coincides with a Northern Grampians Shire Council project to upgrade and develop the airport.
The AGA Group provides agricultural and fire-fighting services as well aircraft charter operations.
Thursday, May 30, 2013
Mr Boschen said the soon to be completed new terminal building at the airport would make passenger transfer a ‘much more’ enjoyable experience and the new GPS arrival procedure would ensure aircraft could return to Stawell more reliably during times of inclement weather.

Northern Grampians Mayor Cr Wayne Rice said he was pleased with the progress of Stawell Airport development. “There are some great things happening out at the airport and it is fantastic to see a local business expanding its operations,” he said. “I congratulate AGA Services for investing in what is a growing industry and look forward to seeing the popularity of FIFO continue to build.”
Business opportunities far from nil at Nhill
The State Government will provide $25,500 for a project to promote business opportunities in Nhill. State Government Minister Hugh Delahunty visited the west Wimmera centre to announce funding for the Nhill Alive with Business Opportunity project. Business Nhill, Nhill Town Committee and Hindmarsh Shire Council have joined forces to develop the marketing project aimed an encouraging people to establish or buy a business in Nhill. A Nhill Open Weekend on October 12 and
13, when the town will host visitors, will play a major part in the project.
Mr Delahunty said it was ideal timing for the launch, which follows a Regional Living Expo in Melbourne. “The pressures of living in Melbourne are enormous, especially if you run a business. We need to show those people how great life can be out here,” Mr Delahunty said. “Nhill has an unprecedented opportunity to become a town of thriving business precincts and attractive streetscapes, with a strong economy that supports job creation.
“The groundwork is being done to build a more livable and economically sustainable community which offers the best environment in which to run a business or raise a family.” Nhill Alive with Business Opportunity committee chairman Alex Graham said the group believed Nhill had much to offer. “This is the best opportunity we have to all get behind the idea of marketing our town and our businesses to a wider audience,” he said. “We live in a fantastic community, and the opportunities are there for people to join us – by starting a business, buying one of the strong,
viable businesses that are for sale in town, or filling one of our skills gaps. “In coming months we will have many opportunities for the community to get involved in the project as we gear up for the Open Weekend. We will be hosting people from outside Nhill, showing them the quality facilities we have and helping them get a feel for what life could be like here for them and their families,” he said. He said people seeking updates on the Nhill Alive with Business Opportunity project and the Open Weekend could visit website www. nhillopenweekend.com.au.

Thea at home with photography work
desire to move back home to the country has led to professional photographer Thea Pettras to open a new business in Horsham.
“No one wants to wait for the photographs any more so the aim is to get a professional product back to clients as quickly as possible,” she said. Ms Pettras established her business about two months ago after completing a Certificate in Small Business Management through the State Government’s New Enterprise Incentive Scheme.
Ms Pettras, 24, grew up on a farm halfway between Horsham and Warracknabeal and attended Horsham College. She specialises in wedding, newborn-baby and portrait photography and is also available for any photographic needs.

Science roadshow visits schools A Victoria University travelling science laboratory will visit schools in Horsham and Stawell next week as part of a tour to encourage budding scientists in regional Victoria. The VU Science Roadshow, from the university’s College of Engineering Science, will be at Birchip P-12 College on Monday before visiting St Brigid’s College in Horsham on Tuesday, and Stawell Secondary College next Wednesday. Horsham and Ararat’s Marian colleges are also involved in the visit. The roadshow allows Victorian Certificate of Education students to explore their curiosity in science
and put theory into practice using analytical instruments in a VCE Chemistry Practicals Program.
“Unfortunately the cost of instruments means that these are not affordable by schools,” he said.
The mobile laboratory contains state-of-the-art scientific equipment including a liquid chromatograph for separating and analysing mixtures; and an ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer to analyse samples with light absorption.
In the VCE Chemistry Practicals Program students and their teachers will be able to put theory into practice with experiments including the analysis of aspirin in medications, caffeine in energy drinks and sugars in honey.
Victoria University’s Dr Domenico Caridi said instrumental chemical analysis was an important part of VCE chemistry curriculum and access to analytical instruments helped schools merge theoretical principles with hands-on experience.
Dr Caridi: “Science is an exciting career and will shape our future so it’s critical to give school students opportunities to engage and have access to the right facilities to inspire them and extend their understanding.”
FIRST FINALIST: Ian Wills of Horsham is the first of 12 finalists for the Horsham Plaza Great Car Giveaway.

Working and adding to super beyond 65 If you are turning 75, and you satisfy the work test, you are able to make super contributions up to 2 months after you celebrate your 75th birthday. After determining whether you are eligible to contribute to superannuation, it’s important to know your limits:
F COMPUTERISED HEALTH THERAPY • • • • •
Fatigue Digestive Problems Allergies Stress Hormonal Imbalance
• • • • • •
High Toxicity Skin Problems Sleep Anxiety Depression Learning Difficulties
Understanding your eligibility to make super contributions after age 65 can be confusing but breaking it into bite-sized chunks can help.
BIOFEEDBACK OFFERS - When two people book in for an assessment together, both receive 50% off their consultation fees. - When two people receive a treatment together, the 2nd person receives 50% off their consultation fees.
MASSAGE THERAPY • Back pain • Hip pain • Sciatica • Frozen Shoulder • Headaches • Migraines
Firstly ask yourself: Will I be able to satisfy the work test? The work test is a government guideline requiring that between the ages of 65 and 75 you are gainfully employed at least 40 hours in a 30-day period. Gainful employment is defined as any endeavour for which you receive remuneration, including baby-sitting, farming, cleaning, etc. If you satisfy the work test you are entitled to contribute to superannuation, and may continue to do so until the end of that financial year.
In situations where you turn 65 during the financial year and will not satisfy the work test, you must make your super contribution before your 65th birthday.
• For the 2012-13 tax year the Nonconcessional – after tax – contribution limit is $150,000 The 2013 Federal budget contained proposed increases to the 2013-14 tax year limits. These changes have not yet been legislated and current rates still apply. It’s worth noting, that if you are 65 and still working, you can contribute a nonconcessional amount of up to $150,000. However, if you are 64 and contribute more than $150,000, you trigger the ‘bring-forward’ provision entitling you to contribute up to $450,000 over the course of the three consecutive years. Here’s an example: Peter is 64 and gainfully employed. During the 2011-12 year he contributed
During the 2012-13 year, Peter turned 65. He continued working but decided to downsize his home. After selling his house and purchasing a unit, he realised a net profit of $200,000. As the most he can add to super in any financial year is $150,000, Peter contributed $150,000 in the 2012-13 year, and $50,000 in the following year. Peter’s total non-concessional contribution over the three consecutive years was $360,000 – well below the three-year cap of $450,000. Superannuation is complicated but it remains one of the most effective ways of funding your retirement. Speak to your financial adviser for personal clarification about what you can and can’t contribute. • Robert Goudie is an authorised representative of Meritum Financial Group Pty Ltd AFSL 245569.

Glenorchy party a ‘big night out’
reparations are in full swing for a major party in the south-east Wimmera township of Glenorchy on Saturday night.
Glenorchy residents will celebrate the reopening of their newly refurbished and extended public hall with the Big Night Out. Floodwater in 2011 severely damaged the hall and restoration work in the past 18 months has included a new floor, new supper room indoor toilets and access ramps for people with disabilities. The project also included raising the hall floor by 300 millimetres to make the building more resilient against future floods. Northern Grampians Shire’s Cr Kevin Erwin said the free-of-charge Big Night Out was sure to be a ‘great night with live music, children’s entertainment and a roast dinner on offer.’ Cr Erwin said Western Victoria MLC David O’Brien would help officially open the newlook hall. “The Glenorchy community should be really pleased with the result of the work that’s been done as they have, in essence, received a brandnew facility,” he said. “We hope to see many happy Glenorchy faces at the Big Night Out because this event is not only for them to celebrate the hall’s reopening, but also to mark their come-back from the devastating floods of two years ago.”
Glenorchy’s Big Night Out will feature performers including big-band outfit Swingside, country and western musician Cameron Mason, contemporary guitar duo Parso and Dave, and 1970s-1990s rock cover band NoXquses Jamie and Kim’s Mobile Zoo and other activities from 4pm will help entertain the children, and the Giant Koala from Dadswells Bridge will cater with a roast dinner at 6pm. Live music will start at 8pm.

Flood damage Flooding occurred at Glenorchy during September 2010 and the State Government responded by providing a grant of $189,975 from its Flood Recovery Community Infrastructure Fund to build a new supper room and indoor toilets at the hall. But Wimmera River floodwater again hit the settlement in January 2011, inundating much of the township and causing damage to infrastructure such as drains and roads as well as almost 100 properties. The Northern Grampians council has repaired the latest damage to the hall with a grant of about $245,000 from Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements. Big Night Out organisers have asked people to bring a plate of food to share for supper and RSVP for dinner with Dianne Stewart on 5358 0500. People simply attending the event don’t need to RSVP.

Rare award for scout
orsham Cub Scout Lachlan Downie, 10, of Horsham has achieved the Grey Wolf Award – the most distinguished honour for cubs in the Scouting movement.
As part of the award’s requirements, Lachlan also made banners, which will be used for camps and other activities. “It was a lot of hard work, but I have learnt a lot. I am now really enjoying being a scout,” he said.
The youngster had to complete a lengthy list of tasks to achieve the rarely awarded honour.
Other badges achieved to attain the Grey Wolf Award included the ‘gold boomerang’, which requires years of
Scout Day bowling competition, and Founders’ Day activities in Rainbow.
Horsham Lions Club president Rodney Clarke presented the Second Horsham Scout Group member with his award at a ceremony at Sawyer Park.
This included planning and coordinating a two-hour hike along the Wimmera River from Horsham showgrounds to Dooen Swamp, which he completed with six of his cub friends.

Much of her work uses the traditional American ‘log cabin’ design, which starts with a central square-shape in each block and fabric strips are added in a clockwise format. This allows for variations in the width or colour of the added fabric strips.
While using traditional quilting fabrics, she now prefers to use products such as recycled kimono silks or material she has collected on travels in Africa and Asia.

Warney’s lucky 13 was still galloping strongly, put all his eggs in one basket and took off before acceptances. After balancing up for the run home the son of Gallo Di Ferro was urged along by his Horsham hoop sailing out after the leading horses.
elopea Downs trainer Darryl Dodson and Texan Warney added another chapter to an amazing career last Sunday, winning the Karingal Haulage Casterton Cup over 2000 metres.
Ridden by his regular jockey Holly McKechnie the chestnut gelding was considered an outside chance for the feature event after a moderate showing in the Mt Gambier Cup a fortnight earlier.
Texan Warney showed acceleration that would rival a Ferrari in the last 200 metres shooting clear of his rivals to score by two lengths. This latest victory was career number 13 boosting his stake earnings to $335,000. If Texan Warney can hold his good form, a tilt at a fourth successive Miller Contractors and Plant Hire Horsham Cup this coming October wouldn’t be out of the question.
Local bagmen rated Texan Warney a 15-1 chance because he wasn’t in the sparkling form that saw him capture a third successive Horsham Cup last spring.
Last Saturday, Stawell trainers Terry and Karina O’Sullivan ventured across the SA border to Adelaide’s sole metropolitan racetrack, Morphettville.
Dodson elected to remove the blinkers from his charge in an attempt to re-ignite his stable star. Once the starter sent the cup field on its way McKechnie elected to give Texan Warney a quiet run in a midfield position, while early leader Razor set a solid pace.
The father-daughter partnership had former NZ mare Koe in a $25,000 1400-metre handicap. Local hoop Matthew Neilson was in the saddle and the duo were hot favourites to take out the event.
As the 12 steeds thundered past the 400-metre marker Razor, who
Once the starting stalls flew open, Neilson elected to take a ‘hold’ of his mount early, settling back in the field after jumping from the ‘visitors’
Koe was given a charmed run throughout by Neilson, who kept a cool head despite being momentarily caught up in traffic just before the home turn. Neilson seized his opportunity when a gap appeared shortly after balancing up for the run to the judge. Once Koe saw daylight she came with a withering burst down the outside accounting for her rivals in superior fashion scoring an easy win. The victory saw the daughter of Golden Slipper runner up Align’s stake earnings rocket to almost $80,000. On the strength of this latest performance a future trip back to Adelaide to contest a similar race wouldn’t surprise.
In brief • Horsham hoop Dean Yendall enjoyed a good weekend with a winning double at Caulfield last Saturday aboard Polanski and Akavoroun and rounding out his weekend saluting on Melete at Casterton last Sunday. • Terry and Karina O’Sullivan’s run of success over the weekend continued with Bionda Dream winning at Casterton over 2000 metres for jockey Paul Hamblin. • Josh Mackay is treasurer and executive of Horsham and District Racing Club.

Selina slips second-season blues Horsham runner Selina Heard-Price has overcome her ‘second season blues’ with Stawell Amateur Athletic Club. She has bounced back in her third year with an overdue win in an eight-kilometre Tylers Hardware Handicap at Rupanyup last Saturday. Selina and her partner Rick Price enjoyed a stunning rookie season with the club in 2011 winning four of the 19 races, but it was a barren back-up year, Selina finishing near the tail and placed just once in 15 races and Rick suffering a calf injury which put him out of contention for most of 2012. As if in sympathy with her husband, Heard-Price went from unstoppable to stopped in just one season but the wiry
couple have revved up their training again and have been rewarded with a win each and perhaps more to follow later in the year. An invigorated Selina now leads the club aggregate by a sizeable margin and is also top of the table in the teams title. “I ran second here to Tim Harris in 2011, but I really didn’t feel up to it this morning,” the winner said. “I woke up feeling a bit flat and went to the start the same way, but it’s amazing how your competitive juices kick in once you know you are in a race.” With typical grit, HeardPrice slowly wore down the tearaway leader Rhonda Clark who, chasing rare back-toback wins after surprising in the Horsham Telstra Shop race
the week before, held on grimly to fail by only 0.05 seconds to make it a double.

Kalkee juggernaut keeps rolling He might be required to take on either Will Smith or James Dixon.
HORSHAM DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Edenhope-Apsley possibly boasts more depth and after a solid contest for a half should sneak away with the points.
By GRANT KUCHEL
he Kalkee juggernaut should continue on its winning way in Horsham District Football League this week by accounting for unpredictable NoradjuhaQuantong.
Big game The easterly edge of the league will see one of the matches of the season play out as the Rupanyup Panthers welcome the Stawell Baggies to the wide open expanses of the Rupanyup ground.
The Kees boast too much depth for the Bombers and with the addition of Aaron Barnett last game the Kalkee side now have a much-needed genuine crumbing forward.
Both sides will be desperate to have the four points come five o’clock Saturday. For the Panthers it keeps them in the hunt for finals action while a win for the Baggies can give them breathing space inside the five.
Both sides boast potent forward lines. Josh Beddison has taken all the accolades for the Kees up forward so far this year but wily veteran Adam Carter is averaging more than five goals a game.
The key for a Panthers win is getting some of their lesser lights to step up and take pressure off the likes of Nathan Sasche, Glenn Wyatt and the Tyler brothers.
At the other end Jordan Huff is kicking his four or more a game while Shane Oakley and Adam Hall are averaging more than three a week so this game might end in a shootout.
Swifts are building momentum based around interleague representatives Owen Phillips, Scott Carey and Sean Mantell. The trio has the ability to run and break lines and should enjoy the space on the wide wings at Rupanyup.
The big question is can the Bombers get enough supply? Noradjuha-Quantong’s midfield, led by veteran Brent McIntyre will need to win a lot of the contested football to limit Simon Hobbs, Steve Schultz and Paul Christian. The Kalkee defence led by interleague joint coach Josh Mibus and Ben Lawson looks bigger and stronger than the Bombers and will ensure the Kees notch their seventh win in a row. Natimuk, land of the big goal posts, hosts an intriguing clash between Natimuk and Edenhope-Apsley. Natimuk has to be considered a genuine finals chance after its win a
HOT FORM: Triple Dellar Medalist Steve Schultz was in red-hot form for HDFL against Loddon Valley in the country championships on Saturday and will prove a tough match-up for Noardjuha-Qunatong when he returns to the Kalkee colours this weekend. Picture: WILLAMY IMAGES
fortnight ago while the Saints will be hoping to get some players back on the battlefield. Dave McLeish and Brent Christie have been in great form in the middle for Edenhope-Apsley and should
have a great battle with Shaun McDonald and Ash Pekin. Tim Friend’s ability to play back on the key forwards and limit their output or push forward and kick goals has been a huge bonus for the Rams.
If Matt Tyler can get on to top and dominate the air the Panthers will be a chance but I’m not sure if they have enough artillery to stop the speed of the Baggies. As they leave Rupanyup on Saturday night, Swifts should be breathing a lot easier, having put space between them and the chasing pack.
Bounce back After two weeks of having to put up with the bitter taste of defeat the Laharum side will bounce back hard against the young Pimpinio side.
With Shannon Argall in sensational form, the Tigers won’t have any answer to him dominating the air and giving his smaller players first use of the ball. Dylan Baker is providing a focal point up forward for the Tigers but the question will be whether he gets enough supply to put Laharum under pressure on the scoreboard. Brett Ervin and if available Keegan Mason will lead a stingy Laharum backline and with the speed of Sam Winfield, Robbie Miller and Tom Inverarity the Tigers will have to work hard to maintain possession. Down south Harrow-Balmoral hosts bottom-of-the-ladder Taylors Lake and the Roos will go into the game with a take-no-prisoners attitude as they chase percentage and make a charge towards fifth position. Brent Penny and Michael Phelan loom large up forward for HarrowBalmoral and with Josh Vickery giving first use of the ball to his on ballers in Dalton Burns, Tim Cogger and Will Plush the Taylors Lake defence will be working overtime again. Jason Weir, Dean Harberger, Luke Robertson and Craig Britten will keep battling to but it’s hard to mount a case for the Lakers to cause an upset.

Teams on hunt for wins before Queen’s break MININERA DISTRICT FOOTBALL LEAGUE By JONATHAN BOX
With the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend coming up teams in Mininera District Football League will be keen to give all they can to go into the break with the momentum of a win. In round seven this weekend GlenthompsonDunkeld will travel to Moyston to take on the Pumas. Moyston-Willaura has dropped only the one game this year, at the hands of the undefeated Wickliffe-Lake Bolac. GlenthompsonDunkeld, which had a stellar start to the season, won its first five games of the season and has since lost two on the trot. Glenthompson-Dunkeld’s most recent loss
was at the hands of undefeated Wickliffe-Lake Bolac. Glenthompson-Dunkeld put up a solid fight, going into half time leading by a point, however a four-goal-to-one third quarter set up victory for the Magpies. Lachlan Fisher, Sam White and Tom Blackford were among the Rams’ best and they will be looking to fire again this weekend and will possibly look for someone to be dominant in front of goals with last week producing only one multiple goal scorer. Moyston-Willaura however will be setting itself to continue on its winning ways, last week having a 32-point victory over LismoreDerrinallum. Nicholas Corbett was instrumental in front of goals, kicking four, with John Vanderwaal and Daniel Guinane also contributing with three apiece. Had Moyston-Willaura been a bit more accurate in front of goal the score line could
have been a lot more devastating. The outfit kicked 18 behinds.
With their dominance in front of goal, along with Jacob Johnson, Jackson Seres and Rhys Cronin all playing well, the Pumas will be set for another victory. Another important game for the round is when Tatyoon takes on Lismore-Derrinallum. Tatyoon is turning its season around, having won its last three games in a row. Its most recent victory was a close shave against Great Western. Last year’s leading goal-kicker Aidan Bell is finding some form and beginning to bag a few goals, kicking four last week. He along with Andrew Maconachie, Tyler Cronin and Joel Fitzpatrick will hope to once again string together another win and go into the break four and four.
Lismore-Derrinallum’s last three games included a draw and two losses to the competition’s top three teams. It will be looking for a much-needed win to keep itself in touch with the top five. A victory could possibly see it move up to sixth, whereas a loss could send it slipping back to 10th. Simon Stewart has been instrumental for the Demons, kicking three goals last week for a total of nine in the last two rounds. He will be looking for plenty of supply from Scott Henderson and Coby Dudman to get over the line. Other games completing the round include Hawkesdale-Macarthur taking on Great Western, Penshurst playing Woorndoo-Mortlake and Wickliffe-Lake Bolac looking to continue its undefeated run against Caramut. SMW Rovers, starting to string together some good victories, will be looking to add to their winning talley when they host Ararat Eagles.

Diggers face tough assignment two wins and two losses while Ararat claims fifth spot with similar points but trailing massively by percentage.
WIMMERA FOOTBALL LEAGUE
An Ararat win, not altogether out of the question considering the uncertainty of this year’s competition, would open up all sorts of speculation.
By DEAN LAWSON
orsham RSL Diggers will face a tough assignment against a potent Dimboola outfit in Wimmera Football League this weekend as the team continues to search for an elusive win.
But if the Diggers have any chance of beating the Roos this season it might well be in the marquee match of the league’s Indigenous recognition round at Dimboola. The Diggers, competition strugglers for a few seasons, have been highly competitive this year but results suggest they might have simply forgotten how to win. Narrow losses to Nhill and Ararat are sure to have chewed into the self-belief of the group, which now confronts one of the favourites for the flag. The Indigenous recognition match at Dimboola on Saturday looms as a season-defining moment for the club as it attempts to win the Wotjobaluk Shield. The Diggers are unlikely to cause an upset – Dimboola is simply too good – but the visitors can either back themselves and take it up to their fancied opponents or cop a hiding. The contest is the fourth Indigenous-recognition clash between the two clubs, which tapped into their cultural histories to develop the concept in 2010. All clubs in the league now embrace the day. The best Diggers player on Satur-
The Rats showed great dash and composure last outing, the form of clever rover Alan Batchelor a significant factor. Will Bell and Aaron Searle were also good and the game from Stephen Phillips at full back attracted opposition accolades. But make no mistake, Horsham remains a strong team. Dashers Tyler Blake, Nick Pekin and John Wood had solid games for the league last week and considering the leadership and run from Brad Hartigan, goal-kicking power of Jordyn Burke and Dylan Parish and Alex Thomson circumstances look ominous for the Rats.
Tough afternoon At Stawell the hometown Warriors also face a tough afternoon, meeting a Minyip-Murtoa side steadily mak-
ing its presence felt across the league.
Minyip-Murtoa overhauled the Eagles last outing, no mean feat, with Zac Cross, Chris Delahunty and Jayden Beaumont leading the way. Despite the efforts of Toby Reid, David Morris, Tom Eckel, leader Tim Seymour and Jorah Margetson, who hard the tough job at full back last week, the Warriors will fall short. Barnstorming Horsham Saints meanwhile, will overcome Nhill’s significant home-ground advantage at Davis Park to beat the Tigers. The Saints are perhaps the most balanced team in the competition at the moment with Phil Butsch and Garry Hallam in good nick after league commitments last week and Jacob Cooke-Harrison with plenty to prove on Saturday. But Nhill, although crashing and burning against Horsham at home, can be hard to beat at Davis Park. Simon Brearley and Ben Pollock are in good form for the Tigers and Matt Jones will make his Saints opponent work hard. But the Saints will be too strong. Keep an eye on a ruck battle in the middle, it should be a beauty.
MERCURIAL: Dimboola onballer Ash Clugston, above, has been in outstanding touch this season and is part of a super-fit Roos line-up on track to end the club’s 28-year premiership drought. Below left, Horsham RSL Diggers defender Luke Chamberlain has been one of the leading lights in a dark season for the winless Diggers.

day will win the Ricci Marks Medal and the best for the Roos will wear the Lester Marks-Harradine Medal at the end of the game. Super-fit Dimboola is loaded with talent and is sure to put on a display for the occasion. The Roos had a bye before interleague action last week and endured a hardening process against Warrack Eagles the week before. Mercurial Ash Clugston has been in outstanding touch and with Al McKinnon, Ryan Bell, Josh Rentsch, Clancy Bennett, Daniel Baker and ruckman Justin Chilver will have sharpened their skills from last week’s interleague action. But others such as Matt and Tom Magee and Andrew Seers have also been in good form and Lachie Watts and Lachie Exell loom as potent forwards. The list of good players seems endless. For the Diggers, key defenders Luke Chamberlain and Ben Devlin are having top seasons, Damian Cameron has been outstanding and a goal-to-goal line featuring forwards Kye Chapple and Scott Nicholson is

dangerous. While rover Brodie Mines and Justin Cozens have been prominent, the Diggers still lack consistent midfield oomph, a fact that will again prove costly again on Saturday.
Level pegging Form suggests this weekend will produce predictable results. A game where teams will statistically start off level pegging is a clash between Horsham and Ararat at Horsham City Oval. Horsham sits in unfamiliar territory on fourth place on the ladder with

FOUR IN A ROW: Mallee Football League’s senior interleague squad celebrates its fourth straight victory in the VCFL Country Championships. Mallee coach and Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers player Colin Durie holds the trophy next to Ouyen United full forward Damian Cupido, who kicked eight goals in the 85-point win over Central Murray Football League at Swan Hill. Woomelang-Lascelles onballer Trent Donnan, back right, won the VCFL medal for best-on-ground. Mallee’s under-16 team also scored a big win, defeating Central Murray by 82 points. Sam White and Jackson Morrish were named Mallee’s best players. Picture: KATHY POULTON
Mallee flies high MALLEE FOOTBALL LEAGUE By MICK SHANNON
allee Football League is flying high after its fourth consecutive VCFL Country Championships victory.
A 13-goal win over Central Murray means the Mallee moves up to 12th position on VCFL standings after previously hovering around the 20th mark. The league gets back into domestic competition this week though, with three big games that should produce some quality football. Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers will look to use the homeground advantage when they come up against Ouyen United at Sea Lake.

bagged eight goals in his last match and will be looking to make it two in a row against the underdogs.
Damian Cupido up forward for Ouyen United will cause headaches for the Sea Lake backmen, while Cliff Ryan will be a hard match-up for the undersized Ouyen United defence.
The quick, skilful footy of the Roos will be too much for the inexperienced Lakers side, and they will come away with a 40-point victory.
The Demons will come out firing in an attempt to move themselves up the ladder, but the Tigers will prove to be too strong at home and win by 24 points.
Hard task Jeparit-Rainbow will have the hard task of travelling to Underbool to take on Walpeup-Underbool. Walpeup-Underbool has been down on form but has a potent list of players and should have a strong second half of the season.
The Tigers sit in second position while the Demons have managed to work their way to fourth.
Jeparit-Rainbow picked up its first win of the season in their last match and will look to carry on that form.
Ouyen United has improved as the season has progressed and is a much better team now than when these two sides last met and the Tigers won by 50 points.
The Lakers have put it together for quarters this season but has been unable to produce a four-quarter performance.
Colin Durie again leads the way for the Tigers in the middle, with Darcy Ryan and Tom Summerhayes helping out to provide extra class.
Simon Clugston has been in terrific form for the Lakers all season and will have the hard task of containing the strong Walpeup-Underbool forward line, which can produce a wide range of goal kickers.

Woomelang-Lascelles will look to move into the top four when it takes on Hopetoun at Woomelang. The Cats have played some fantastic footy this season, but will need to win this game if they are going to be any chance of playing finals. Hopetoun is yet to win a game this year and sits at the bottom end of the ladder. The Devils need to find something to stem the disappointment from players and supporters. Luke Carr has played well and will give his Hopetoun charges a big chance of winning this match. Liam Price is another who has put his hand up all season, while young gun Zac Robins is proving to be invaluable in defence. Woomelang-Lascelles has a great list of players and will look to take advantage at the centre clearances, with VCFL medallist Trent Donnan and speedster Pierce Liddle controlling the game. The Devils will give their all in this game, but the Cats possess too many good players across every area of the field and will win by 25 points. Beulah has the bye.

Ford to kill Falcon badge as well F
ord’s iconic, six-decade old Falcon badge will die with the company’s Australian manufacturing operations in 2016.
“It’s my view that Falcon will retire, and Territory we are just beginning the dialogue around.”
It’s too early to speculate with any certainty on any potential future ‘Territory’ vehicle, but news that Ford’s well-regarded Australian design and engineering centre will stay in business well beyond 2016 could potentially point to some local involvement.
The news means that any potential new imported Ford sedan sold Down Under beyond 2016 will instead wear a global badge – in-line with the global One Ford strategy. However, Ford has not ruled out putting the Territory badge on a future imported SUV – potentially a variation of the global Explorer – when the current locally made version ceases. Launched here in 1960, the Falcon sedan – as well as its discontinued wagon and existing ute variations – has long been the heart of Ford’s local operations, and for many years dominated the local sales charts alongside its equally famous archrival, Holden’s Commodore. But as the market has fragmented, and as buyers have shifted from large sedans into small-cars and SUVs, the Falcon’s sales – and the large-car segment overall, have dwindled to just a fraction of their former numbers. At its peak in 1995, Ford sold around 81,000 Falcons in Australia, but last year this had dwindled to just over 14,000 – plus an extra 5733 utes. In that same time, total new vehicle sales in Australia have actually
Ford’s APA – Asia, Pacific and Africa – design and engineering centre in Victoria developed not just the Territory, but also the global Ranger ute and its yet-to-be-seen, but forthcoming, SUV derivation, based on the same T6 platform. FINAL FALCON: Ford president and CEO Bob Graziano has confirmed that the Falcon name will be killed off when production ceases in 2016, but the Territory could live on.
grown by around 25 percent. Holden will keep producing Commodores here until at least 2022, although later this decade will replace the new VF with a different model based on a global architecture – possibly a front-drive one. But Ford Australia will not apply the Falcon badge to any imported car post-2016, even if it hasn’t exactly ruled out selling a global D segment large sedan here in the current FG Falcon’s place.
Ford Australia CEO Bob Graziano told GoAuto that the decision to close the plants – one, he added, that ‘was not taken lightly’ – would be the right time to retire Falcon. Mr Graziano spoke with us just hours after he had broken the news of the impending plant closures to Ford staff.
But Mr Graziano said the company was less set on its plans for the Territory badge. The Falcon-based SUV has won many plaudits since its introduction in 2004, and unlike its Falcon sibling, has continued to sell in strong numbers of late – a sign of the shift to SUVs across the market.
“I honestly believe it is so closely linked to Australia and to local production that the right thing for us is to retire the name with vehicle in October 2016,” he said.
“That’s one that we are working on, we potentially may continue to use the Territory name on another product, but we have not taken any decisions on that,” he said.
Large sedans While the Falcon is now officially on death row, Mr Graziano refuted suggestions that large sedans as a whole were going the way of the dodo. “I don’t think it’s a dead car walking,” he said. “I think there are still a number of customers out there, though a much smaller part of the industry, but there are individuals that truly want and value this type of vehicle, and they’re the ones we want to provide to over the next three years.” Mike Costello © GoAutoMedia, 2013

This year’s Millward Brown Brandz ranking of the top 100 brands in the world saw BMW drop one place to 24 in the overall rankings with brand value of more than US$24 billion – AUD$24.6b, while Toyota experienced a 12 percent increase of its brand value to US$24.5b – AUD$25.1b – and a move up to number 23. A report detailing the rankings suggested that BMW’s two per cent slip was partly due to the European economic downturn affecting the German giant’s earnings.

Australian utes down but not out G
M Holden has made a significant move in slashing prices and improving value across its Australian-built utility range with the forthcoming VF series in an attempt to stem the flow of sales towards imported models.
WORK FORCE: Holden will be hoping the new VF Ute can arrest a 24.5 percent sales decline this year, and turn around a longer-term move away from its Commodorebased light commercial to bigger imported utilities.
The substantial upgrade brought with the updated series should have a positive impact on the two-door ute, at least in the short term, but questions remain over the longer term future of the passenger-car-based light commercial – not just from Holden, but Ford as well.
And demand is the key here. As Ford, too, works on a significantly improved Falcon ute for release next year – and remains quiet
Holden and Ford have had mixed fortunes in recent years with the imported Colorado/Rodeo and Ranger/ Courier utilities, with the lion brand in particular still a long way from when it was selling around 25,000 a year in the mid-2000s. But with excellent new-generation models now in the market, model variants in place to satisfy demands from a wide range of customers and vehicle supplies flowing freely, both imported pick-ups from the Australian brands are now outselling their smaller locally built counterparts by a big margin.
While Holden has committed to building a new-generation Commodore on a global platform that will be different from the current Australiandeveloped ‘Zeta’ architecture, the company is still to divulge whether the new underpinnings will be suitable for a utility body style. It will likely have the option to continue building the current ute alongside the all-new sedan later this decade, providing it makes financial sense, which in turn hinges on demand in the marketplace – mainly in Australia but also in potential export destinations such as the US.
compared to the Australian-built ute.
on the prospect of a fully redesigned version down the track – demand for both Australian utilities has continued to fall sharply this year in what has been a consistent decline for almost 10 years. Yet this does not represent a plunge in popularity of the utility per se. On the contrary, sales of imported
4x2 and 4x4 utes have grown in accordance with their increasing popularity with family and recreational buyers – in addition to the traditional trade/business base – and with ongoing improvements in refinement, quality, safety and, not least of all, value, thanks to favourable exchange rates and a free-trade agreement between Australian and Thailand.
What a traditional imported workhorse ute lacks in terms of engineering sophistication and driving dynamics – typically using a separate chassis construction and live rear axle suspension, for example – it clearly makes up for with its competitive pricing, cab options, extra space, off-road ability and SUV-like seating position, to name a few key factors,
To the end of April, Holden had this year sold 1808 Commodore-based utes compared to 4792 new registrations of Colorado, which is up substantially in both 4x2 and 4x4 guise this year compared to early 2012, when supplies were short due to lingering effects of the late-2011 Thai floods. Ford, meanwhile, has this year seen the 4x2 version of Ranger outsell the Falcon ute, with the Australian-engineered Thai model up 26.2 percent YTD on 1463 units and the Aussie ‘battler’ down 19.7 percent to 1408.

Toyota’s teaser T
oyota has teased its sportier new Corolla sedan ahead of its official global unveiling on June 6.
NEW DIRECTION: Toyota promises a more exciting look for the new Corolla sedan as it moves away from the more conservative design of the current model.
Released on Toyota USA’s Facebook page, the teaser image shows the lower rear of the Corolla and appears to maintain a similar rear design to the Furia concept that was revealed at the Detroit motor show earlier this year. While the Corolla sedan may be inspired by the design of the sleek-looking Furia, it will most likely feature far less-radical styling than the concept. Toyota Australia public relations manager Mike Breen confirmed to GoAuto in February that the Furia concept was indicative of the production sedan that is likely to go on sale locally in the first quarter of next year. Spy photos of a production vehicle with Corolla badges that hit the web in February revealed a similar angular front end to that of the Corolla hatch as well as the current

In April, Toyota unveiled the Yundong Shuangquing II small car concept at the Shanghai motor show that had a similar shape to the Furia and hinted at the new Corolla. An ‘S’ badge on the rear of the car hints at the more sporting nature of the nextgeneration of the small sedan, with Toyota already confirming a move away from the conservative styling of previous Corolla sedans. It is not yet known if Toyota
will follow the same variant line-up as the current model that includes the base Ascent, Ascent Sport, Conquest and top-spec Ultima. After launching in Australia in October last year, the Corolla hatch has been a sales winner for the Japanese brand and is the second-best selling small car in Australia this year with 13,134 units, just behind the number one-selling Mazda3 on 13,351 sales.

Mitsubishi swaps Mirage for Attrage Mitsubishi has confirmed the long-rumoured Mirage sedan will go into production, but when it launches in Thailand mid-year it will have a new name – the Attrage. Mitsubishi will produce the Attrage, a combination of the words attractive and Mirage, at its Laem Chabang plant in Thailand alongside the Mirage hatch that went on sale in Australia in January. The tiny Mirage-based sedan will go on sale in Thailand before any other global market, with a likely Austral-
ian berth in early 2014. It is unclear whether Mitsubishi Motors Australia will keep the new name or if it will revert to the Mirage nameplate when it launches locally. Powering the Attrage is the same 1.2-litre MIVEC engine as found in the Mirage with a choice of five-speed manual gearbox or CVT and fuel use in the range of 4.5 litres per 100 kilometres. Based on the G4 sedan concept revealed at the Shanghai motor show last month, the Attrage is clearly linked to the Mirage in design, but features a redesigned nose with a larg-
er grille, bigger head-lights and restyled front bumper. Mitsubishi said in a statement that the Attrage features a class-leading turning circle of 4.8 metres and ‘sleek aerodynamics, with a dynamic character line which kicks up towards the rear’. It won’t be the first time a car-maker changes the name of the sedan version of a popular hatch in the sub-compact class, with Honda naming its Jazz-based sedan the City and Nissan going with Almera for its Micra-based offering.

Micra to Europe N
issan will help alliance partner Renault use excess manufacturing capacity in economically ravaged Europe by building the next-generation Micra light car in Flins, France, from 2016.
An estimated 82,000 Micras will be built at Flins each year, returning European sourcing of the model to the region after what will by then be a six-year hiatus.
LIGHT FANTASTIC: Now priced from $17,990 driveaway, sales of the light-sized Honda City sedan should take off beyond the 232.8 percent increase already achieved this year.
Honda doing driveaway deals H
Renault was asked to produce the Micra on Nissan’s behalf, and the French company chose Flins, on the western fringe of Paris, where compact models such as the Zoe EV and Clio are assembled.
MICRA MANAGED: Nissan built the Micra in Brtiain for 18 years before production for Europe moved to Chennai, India, to make way for the Juke compact SUV.
nault agreement are beginning to bear fruit – Renault is in line to fulfil its commitments.”
Talks between Renault and union representatives, to increase the competitiveness of its French production facilities, gave the green light to produce the Nissan vehicles.
Renault’s side of the agreement is a commitment to increase production volume at its French factories by 180,000 vehicles per year, to 710,000, with 100,000 coming from new products and 80,000 from partners including Nissan.
Renault group chief executive Carlos Ghosn described the manufacturing deal as ‘good news for Flins, but also for all Renault plants in France’.
According to Nissan, benefits of the agreement include ‘capital expense reduction,
“The efforts committed by our employees under the Re-
foreign exchange exposure reduction and working capital reduction through shorter supply chains’. Nissan Europe management committee chairman Trevor Mann said the company was ‘pleased to leverage the economic and logistical benefits of sourcing the next-generation Micra at a forecast annual volume of 82,000 units from a Renault plant in Europe’.

onda sales are up 65.4 percent so far this year in Australia, and the company is hoping to keep the momentum going with driveaway deals and a fiveyear extended warranty plus roadside assistance.
The biggest discount is applied to the City light sedan, which is $17,990 driveaway in base form, compared with $18,490 plus on-road costs. Meanwhile the higher-spec VTi-L is $21,990 driveaway, down from $22,990 plus onroads. Honda is also punting out Jazz VTi light hatches at
$19,990 driveaway, effectively limiting on-road costs to $200 over the normal price of an automatic Jazz VTi.
“We have seen our CR-V at the top of the sales chart for petrol SUVs in March, the arrival of our first diesel and Earth Dreams Technology engine along with an upgrade to our award-winning CR-Z.
Metallic paint, normally $475, is now included on the Civic sedan, which is priced from $21,990 driveaway, which means on-road costs are limited to around $1000.
“These exciting additions along with the free five-year extended warranty offer means that there has never been a better time to visit your local Honda Dealer.”
The extended warranty and roadside assistance offer lasts until the end of June, but Honda Australia confirmed the driveaway deals are ‘ongoing’.
City sales are up 232.8 percent year-to-date, while the Civic sedan and hatch are up 140.7 percent and the Jazz is down 12.2 percent.
Honda Australia director Stephen Collins celebrated the first four months of this year as ‘a great start for Honda’.
