BREAN RALLY 2017

 


 

PRESS RELEASE: 21st/22nd January 2017

High-speed thrills and spills watched by crowds at Brean Rally

100s of spectators and dozens of competitors flocked to Brean over the weekend 21/22 January to see the K&R Mistubishi Stages Rally in full flow.

There were 85 cars and 170 drivers in action over the two days of the event, which took place for the fifteenth time at Brean Leisure Park.

Motor enthusiasts from around the country saw racer Peter Lloyd win the race for the third year in a row, his fifth title there in total.

Organiser Rod McKenna said: “It was probably the best rally in terms of strength of competitors that we’ve had.

“It was a very closely contested race that we know all the drivers had fun taking part in, and hope all the spectators had just as much fun watching.”

The rally, held entirely within the grounds of Brean Leisure Park, is organised and promoted by locally-based Club Rallysport West.

Bleadon Hill resident Andrew Hicks, aged, 24, who was racing for PIAA and Permashine, said: “This is the third time we’ve taken part in the rally. We wanted to do a bit better this year as we haven’t done as well as we wanted in previous years.

“We finished sixth in class, and 32nd overall, so we did OK but we still wanted to do better, especially as local representatives.

“The car’s got a good few scrapes along the way, we’ve bashed into a few rocks and barrels on the way round the course.

“It’s good representing the area, especially as it means you’ll have a few family and friends there to cheer you on.”

Of the other local drivers, Stuart Bliss and Richard Marsh finished 18th, with brothers Lee and Simon Bretherton coming 31st overall, while Tom Baigent and Tom Bretherton, and Darren Evans and Matt Carrow were forced to retire.


 

PRESS RELEASE: 24 January 2016

High-speed thrills and spills watched by crowds at Brean Rally

Crowds of spectators flocked to Brean this weekend to watch over 90 drivers from across the UK take part in the 20th annual Brean Rally.

The 2016 rally started on Saturday and continues on Sunday 24th January at Brean Leisure Park from 10am.

The crowds got to watch fast-paced bumper-to-bumper action on Saturday and previous winners Steve and Yvonne Furzeland in their Subura Impreza world rally car led the overall rally by 29 seconds at the end of the first day's racing.

"This is the twentieth consecutive year for the rally at Brean and it promises to be as exciting and as big as ever with some of the top rally crews from around the UK taking part," organiser Rod McKenna told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"The rally, promoted by locally based Club Rallysport West, is the opening round of 3 major regional rally championships, the Association of South Western Motor Clubs, Association West Midlands Motor Clubs Heart of England and the Cotswold Motor Sport Group."

"The rally has recently been awarded the title of the South West's 'Best Sealed Surface Rally for 2015', an accolade which is made all the more gratifying as it is an award voted on by the competitors. This is the second time we have won this award, the last occasion being 2011."

Held entirely within the confines of the Brean Leisure Park in Somerset, the event has attracted a capacity entry of around 90 teams.

The crews tackled the 12 special stages over two days around the roads of the Brean Leisure Park.

The rally has attracted a wide range of rally cars from World Rally Cars to the ever popular Ford Escorts, Vauxhall's and Peugeots.

The organisers are ensuring that spectators are well looked after with three spectator areas giving excellent viewing of the rally stages. This together with a covered seated grandstand and the parks inside and outside catering facilities, provides a weekend extravaganza of motorsport.

 

BREAN STAGES RALLY 23rd / 24th January 2016

On behalf of Club Rallysport West, Brean Leisure Park and our rally partners, we extend a warm welcome to the BREAN STAGES RALLY 2016, celebrating 20 years of rallying in the park.

The event is a championship qualifying round for the ASWMC, AWMMC Heart of England and CMSG Rally Championships.

A total of 12 stages are on offer, 6 on Saturday and 6 on Sunday, providing 52 miles of competitive rallying over the excellent sealed surface roads of the Leisure Park.

For those competitors who unfortunately are forced to retire from the main rally on Saturday, we have theTrophy Rally for the Sunday stages, to enable those competitors to enjoy a full weekend of rallying.

Those of you who wish to stay on site at the rally village, Brean Leisure Park are once again offering a two night bed and breakfast rally special in their luxury holiday homes. The package includes the extremely popular rally dinner and cabaret on Saturday evening, which has become an integral part of the rally. Details and booking form are included with these regulations. The on-site indoor swimming complex will also be available to rally crews and families over the weekend.

We would like to acknowledge the support and assistance given to the rally by all our rally partners and members of our associate clubs, Bournemouth and District Car Club and Woolbridge Motor Club, and to all other motor clubs, marshals and officials who provide the rally with their invaluable support throughout the weekend.

Important reminder:

The Brean Stages Rally will be among the first rallies in 2016 which will be required to implement the new regulation regarding the mandatory use of the FIA-approved Frontal Head Restraints (otherwise known as HANS). The attention of all competitors is drawn to this new regulation, which is effective from 1 January 2016.
