n IF THE new football season is not your scene and you want a new sport to enjoy, an unusual national championship is coming to Brean this weekend.
Brean Leisure Park in Coast Road will host the UK’s premier tractor pulling competition, more than 20 years since the sport was last held in the town, where drivers and their souped-up vehicles haul a sled as far as possible along a 100-metre track.
About 25 competitors will be taking part in this clash of the titans of British tractor pulling, starting at 5pm on Saturday and 11am on Sunday. Tickets, priced £2.50-5, are available from Brean Leisure Park on 01278 751595 or via www.brean.com.
