Bre­con Mo­tor Club will be or­gan­is­ing the 27th Stephens and Ge­orge Harry Flat­ters Rally this year over the well known iconic stages of the Epynt ranges.

On Sun­day July 31, com­peti­tors from the Min­tex Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship and four other cham­pi­onships will de­scend to do bat­tle. With 70 stage miles on smooth Tar­mac over just five spe­cial stages, it will be es­sen­tial that pace notes are finely tuned and cars pre­pared well for this epic chal­lenge.

The event com­prises of a Na­tional A His­toric Rally and a Na­tional B Mod­ern Rally, both run as one on the road but there will be a big bat­tle for hon­ours as last year’s his­toric win­ners Ja­son Pritchard and Phil Clarke vie to take an­other vic­tory in their Ford Es­cort RS1800 while pre­vi­ous mod­ern win­ner Damian Cole will hope for glory in his Ford Fi­esta WRC with Paul Mor­ris.

Whilst this pair bat­tle for top hon­ours there will be a host of other com­peti­tors out to suc­ceed in their par­tic­u­lar classes or just en­joy them­selves in an at­tempt to get a fin­ish on some of the long­est and smoothest Tar­mac stages avail­able in the coun­try. Re­gard­less of car or bud­get Bre­con Mo­tor Club will treat ev­ery­one equally.

Spec­ta­tors will be more than wel­come and two view­ing ar­eas have been ar­ranged for the first four stages and a fur­ther two for the fi­nal test. With safety at the fore­front of the or­gan­iser’s agenda the ar­eas planned of­fer safe panoramic view­ing with fa­cil­i­ties present to make the day even more en­joy­able. Any­one plan­ning to at­tend is asked to ac­cess the ranges by the of­fi­cial means which will be ad­ver­tised at bre­con­mo­tor­club.co.uk the week be­fore the event.

Most im­por­tantly we ask that spec­ta­tors re­spect any in­struc­tions given by event mar­shals.
