Brands Hatch Stage rally gets 2017 season underway this month

Monday, January 02 2017

The 2017 season at Brands Hatch will get off to an early start on Sunday 21 January, with the annual MGJ Engineering Winter Stage Rally. A huge entry is set to contest a wide variety of stages that will transform the Kent venue.

The rally is part of the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship, which entered its second season at Oulton Park last November. It's already a huge hit with competitors, and a capacity entry will be heading to Brands Hatch this month.

Previous rounds have featured an eclectic mixture of rear-wheel-drive Ford Escorts and Lotus Sunbeams, 80s hatchbacks and the iconic four-wheel-drive Ford Sierra Cosworth, Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evo models. There will also be several rare Ferrari 308 Michelottos in the field.

The rally will be based entirely within the bounds of Brands Hatch, where spectators will be able to see the action from most of the venue's popular viewing spots. Stage routes will cover the Indy circuit's tarmac in both directions, plus the pits, paddock, access roads and dedicated rally stage. Visitors will also be able to see the cars being prepared in the special rally paddock, which will be located along Colin Chapman Way.

The event will run into darkness, with blazing headlights, flaming exhausts and glowing brake discs adding a spectacular element to the proceedings!

Tickets for the MGJ Engineering Winter Stage Rally at Brands Hatch on Saturday 21 January are now on sale for just £12, or £8 to 13-15 year-olds, with free entry to under-13s. For more information or to book, call 0843 453 9000 or click  here.
