Brean Rally 2017 set to rev into action with a record number of entries

100 drivers from across the UK are gearing up to take part in the 2017 Brean Rally, which is set to return to the village this month.

The 2017 rally, which will be held over the weekend of 28th and 29th January, is set to see an all-time record number of drivers taking part, say organisers.

This will be the 21st consecutive year for the rally at Brean and it promises to be as exciting and as big as ever with many the top rally crews from around the UK taking part.

The rally, promoted by Club Rallysport West, has recently been awarded the title of the 'South West's Best Sealed Surface Rally', an accolade that's all the more special as it is an award voted on by the competitors. This is a back-to-back award for the Brean Rally, which it won in 2015 and 2011.

Held entirely within the confines of the Brean Leisure Park, the crews will tackle the12 special stages over two days around the roads of the Leisure Park.

"Such is the popularity of this West Country event that enquiries for entries have been received from all parts of the UK," organiser Rod McKenna told

"The rally is once again expected to attract a wide range of rally cars, from World Rally Cars to the ever popular Ford Escorts, Vauxhalls and Peugeots."

"A great feature of the rally will be the pre-rally scutineering of the cars, which will take place at the Weston College Campus in the Locking Road on the Friday preceding the rally. This provides an excellent chance for the public to see the rally cars close up and admission to the campus is free."

The organisers add that spectators at the 2017 Brean Rally will be well looked after. "There will be three spectator areas, giving excellent viewing of the rally stages, together with a covered, seated grandstand and catering facilities."

Spectators will be admitted to the park over both days for an admission charge of £5 (accompanied children under 12 will be admitted free) and car parking will be £5. You can keep up to date with the build-up to the 2017 Brean Rally here on
