BREAN Leisure Park is all set for two days of spectacular motor sport with the K&R

Mitsubishi Stages Rally taking place this weekend.

Competitors will be arriving on Friday for the pre-rally car scrutineering, where the cars are checked for conformity to the technical regulations.

At number 1 is Peter Lloyd from Bridgend, the winner at Brean in 2009 in his Subaru Impreza S12 WRC. Second seed Dave Kynaston from Exeter in his Audi A3 Quattro, followed by husband and wife team Steve and Yvonne Furzeland from Plymouth with their Subaru Impreza WRC.

Sponsor and five times winner of this event, Karl Broad (Metro 6R4) is seeded fourth, followed by James Harvey from Plymouth (Subaru Impreza), Dave Parnell of Plymouth

(Ford Escort), Simon Mauger from Oxfordshire (Ford Escort), Robert Dennis from Cricklade, current CMSG champion in a Ford Escort, Neil Weaver from Ludlow (Darrian T9) and rounding off the top 10 is Dick Mauger from Oxfordshire in his Ford Focus WRC.

Although not competing, an unexpected attraction will be an Aston Martin rally car, which is based on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

The rally this year is supporting the charity, Help for Heroes, and will be assisted by cadets from the three services. In addition, each competitor is being asked to obtain personal sponsorship on behalf of the rally to boost donations. Representatives from the charity will also be in attendance throughout the weekend.

Spectators are welcome into the park over both days of the rally where there will be covered seated grandstands and heated snacks available in the spectator zone. All other indoor catering facilities will also be available within the park.

The stages this year have been designed so that spectators have full view of the stage starts and merges as well as views into other sections of the stages.

Other attractions will include static displays by the Mitsubishi Owners Club and Mini Owners Club as well as trade stands.

Spectators will be admitted to the park over both days of the rally by way of a car parking charge only of £20 per car, which will include a souvenir rally programme. Reduced rates will apply for re-admittance on the Sunday when a programme is shown at the gate.

The park opens both days from 8am and further information can be obtained through the rally website at
