Brean Rally 2009 is set to roar into action this weekend

Brean Leisure Park, near Burnham-On-Sea, will once again echo to the sound of high octane engines this weekend when the 2009 Brean Stages Rally gets underway.

The two-day event takes place on Saturday (31st January) and Sunday (1st February) and will feature highly competitive racing action with cars coming from around the UK.

Starting at number one on the entry grid will be the current National British Asphalt Rally Champion and last year's Brean winner, David Kynaston, co-driven by Andy Russell from Exeter. David will be driving his very fast Audi A3 Quatro and will be at maximum attack from the start, attempting to achieve an historic hattrick of wins.

At number two, and also hoping to win the event, is Peter Lloyd/Graham Handley from South Wales in their newly-acquired Subaru Impreza S12 World Rally Car, previously owned by ex world rally champion Petter Solberg. Lloyd has won this event twice before in 1999 and 2001 driving an MG Metro 6R4.

At number three are the husband and wife pairing Steve and Yvonne Furzeland from Plymouth in another Subaru Impreza WRC. Steve and Yvonne are current South West Tarmacadam Rally Champions and have previously won this event in 2006. They have a daughter, Danielle, also competing in the rally at number 33.

Starting at four is five times winner of the event, Karl Broad/Trasie Moore in the iconic Metro 6R4. Last year Broad went into the second day of the rally only one second behind leader Kynaston when his steering rack broke on the opening Sunday Special Stage, putting him out of the rally.

Another crew who had mechanical problems last year, James Harvey/Paul Arberry, in their Subaru Impreza went out of the rally whilst lying fifth overall. They start this race at number five.

A car that should prove interesting to watch is the Hyundai Accent WRC, previously owned by Alistair McRae and now in the hands of Gary Nuttall/Paul Drew from Cheshire. Nuttall starts the rally at number six and has high hopes of a top three finish.

Another unusual car is the Peugeot 306 maxi kit car of Buckinghamshire crew of David West/Keith Hounslow. West's last outing in the car was last December and it saw him claim an outright win, so he could be a 'dark horse' to watch.

So the stage is set for some competitive driving over the weekend. Spectators are welcome over both days and gates open at the park from 8am, with racing starting at around 9am. Admission is by car parking charge only, up to two persons in a car costs £10 and three persons or more in a car costs £15. Both rates include a souvenir programme. There are also special rates to cover both days.
