Severe thunderstorm warning issued

VICTORIANS have been warned to brace for damaging wind, heavy rainfall, flash flooding and large hailstones.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for western and central Victoria just before 10am.

The warning includes Bendigo and Maryborough. It also covers Melbourne, Mildura, Horsham, Ballarat, Shepparton, Seymour, Geelong and Traralgon.

Storms are expected to hit in the next couple of hours, the bureau said.

Senior forecaster Scott Williams said areas around Colac, west of Geelong, were already experiencing “nasty” storms.

While yesterday’s predicted thunderstorms “didn’t really get going”, Mr Williams warned people against complacency today.

He said there was much more upper atmosphere support for today’s extreme weather.

Mr Williams said the risk of not just lightning but also damaging winds, hailstones larger than two centimetres and flash flooding.

“This is a very broad swathe of thunderstorms moving across the state,” he said.

A caller to Fairfax radio station 3AW said he could see lightning strikes “everywhere” around Hamilton, in the state’s west.

“It’s not looking good,” he said.

The State Emergency Service advises that people should:

* keep clear of fallen power lines.

* secure any loose objects in the vicinity of your home.

* keep away from creeks and drains.

* do not drive vehicles through flooded areas.

* stay indoors if possible.

* avoid using the phone during the storm.

* if you are outside, avoid sheltering under trees

* listen to the radio for storm updates

* switch off your computer and electrical appliances.

French cavalry on order for Bathurst

HE may joke that he is a lazy trainer, but when Frenchman Pierre Vercryusse arrives at the Bathurst Paceway tomorrow night, it will be as the current title holder of the World Driving Championship.

Vercryusse is one of 10 highly credentialed reinsmen who will be at the Bathurst Harness Racing Club’s meeting as part of the 2015 World Driving Championship, a bi-annual series which pits the best in the sport against each other through a series of races.

This year the championship consists of 20 heats and the Bathurst club has been given the honour of hosting four of those at their new facility, the track having seen quick times and earned plenty of praise since opening in October.

While Australia’s representative in the series, Chris Alford, has made in impressive start to the competition as he was five points clear of his nearest rival after the first two days of racing, Vercryusse has not done it as easy.

He was sitting in last position on 17 points, well behind Alford’s 52, after five heats.

Still, the man who won his first race at Graignes race track back in 1978 certainly has the skill and time to make up that deficit before Sunday’s final heat at Menangle Park.

As of December 31 last year, he had driven 17,999 winners.

“I am happy to be here, I am going to try my best to keep my title,” he told TrotsTV.

Vercryusse won the World Driving Championship on his home soil two years ago in commanding fashion, while his venture to Australia marks the third time he has represented France in the competition.

“I had a chance to race in Canada [as well] and it was a New Zealand driver who won it that year. It was a tough competition, but it was very good because we were fighting in the race, but it was a very good feeling,” he said.

Though he has also raced in countries such as Italy, Norway, Sweden and Finland, Vercryusse does a bulk of his driving in France. He also has a small, but select team of 12 horses he trains.

“[In France] You can drive every day of the week, afternoon time, night time – it depends on if it’s winter time, spring time,” he said.

“Most of the time I drive 900-1,000 times a year.

“I have a really small stable, I train 12 horses … since I spend a lot of time on the road, it is better not to have too many.

“I am a lazy kind of guy, so I have three people working for me.

“I just keep 12 because I only keep the best of the best for myself.”

Tomorrow night in Bathurst Vercryusse had no say over which horses he was allocated for the four heats which will be staged.

Two of them are horses trained locally – Nathan Hurst’s We Own The Night and Chris Frisby’s Uncle John.

Both are last start winners, but We Own The Night looks the better prospect given his barrier one draw in heat 13, which will be contested over 1,730 metres.

Uncle John, who is having his first start since saluting at Bathurst on November 19, has draw gate 12 in heat 14.

The big race meeting is set to get underway at 6.15pm tomorrow night, with the first of Bathurst’s four World Driving Championship heats set for 7.13pm.

Festival parade will conclude at Brougham Park this year

Festival of International Understanding 2014. This year’s parade will be in reverse, instead ending at Brougham Park. The Festival of International Understanding Committee and Cowra Tourism “Harvest in the Park” team are combining these two iconic events as an exciting new initiative for this year’s Festival, Chairperson Councillor Ruth Fagan said.

“We have been working towards better outcomes for both the Festival and ‘Harvest in the Park’ participants, so joining the two seemed a natural transition,” Cr Fagan said.

“This allows us to bring two audiences together to share the joy of making new friends, offering greater market opportunities, and providing our community with a fantastic new event,” she added.

Harvest in the Park has grown into a large-scale market for local producers with a unique experience offering food, wine, and local produce, Cowra Tourism Manager, Belinda Virgo explained

“The team at Cowra Tourism are looking forward to bringing ‘Harvest in the Park’ to the region throughout 2015,” she said.

“We are excited to be partnering with the Festival of International Understanding for our first market of the year which will hopefully encourage people who wouldn’t usually join us for Harvest in the Park, to come along.

“This special twilight event, with a focus on gourmet food and wine, offers both locals and visitors alike another reason to come along and sample the delicious food and creative offerings sourced from our region,” Ms Virgo said.

The Festival Parade will conclude at Brougham Park and mark the opening of Harvest in the Park markets.
