The Brean Stages Rally returns next month at Brean Leisure Park for the 22nd consecutive year.

The South West’s annual premier stage rally, the Brean Stages Rally, returns for the 22nd consecutive year over the weekend of January 27-28, 2018 with pre-rally scrutineering of the cars at the Weston College Skills Campus Motorsport Technology Centre in Locking Road on January 26.

Voted the South West’s Rally of the Year for the third time in 2016, the Brean Stages Rally is promoted by locally-based Club Rallysport West and is held entirely within the confines of the Brean Leisure Park and is expected to attract a capacity entry of up to 100 cars.

The crews will tackle the 12 special stages over two days around the roads of the leisure park and requests for entries have been received from all around the UK. A wide range of rally cars are expected from the spectacular World Rally Cars to the ever popular Ford Escorts, Vauxhall’s and Peugeots.

A feature of the rally will be the pre-rally scrutineering of the cars, which will take place at the college campus on the Friday preceding the rally. This provides an excellent chance for the public to see the rally cars close up and admission is free.

Once again 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, will provide a weekend extravaganza of motorsport.

Spectators will be admitted to the park over both days for an admission charge of just £10 (accompanied children under 12 will be admitted free) and car parking will be £5.
