Benjamin James Briant is an English rally driver from Darley Dale, Derbyshire born on 11th June 1980.
He competed in the British championship in 1999 and 2000 and made his WRC debut aged 19 in 1999 at Sanremo, driving a Ford Puma Kit Car.
In 2001 Briant's exploits in the European Rally Championship met with disaster, for the Englishman had an unfortunate clash with a concrete electricity pylon in Ypres, that briefly put co-driver Tim Line in hospital. Then they bravely decided to go ahead with their plans to drive a Guy Colsoul Rallysport Group N Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI on the Rallye Deutschland, but their efforts were frustrated by a host of mechanical problems.
