Land Rover Announces Sponsorship of ‘Defender Challenge by Bowler’ One-Make Rally Championship.
How can you make a house hold name such as the Land Rover defender, and transform it into an international race spec rally truck? You team up with Bowler Motorsport, and turn it into a beast.
The Defender Challenge car is a modified Defender 90 Hard Top utilising the factory-standard 2.2 litre diesel engine which has been uprated to 170 bhp by Bowler Motorsport. All Defender Challenge cars will run the standard 6-speed manual gearbox, controlled Kuhmo tyres and full MSA-approved roll cage and fire extinguisher system. Further aiding the accessibility of the series, all cars will remain road-legal and can be driven to events if required.
