LAND ROVER DEFENDER 90 TD HARD TOP - GENUINE BOWLER CHALLENGE - 2014

Conceived in 2013 as a one-make, off-road series aimed at aspiring professional and occasional amateur drivers alike, the Defender Challenge was a joint venture between Land Rover and Bowler Motorsport which ran from 2014 until 2016. Regulated by the Motor Sports Association, each season consisted of seven UK-based rounds, all of which supported existing events such as the Somerset Stages, Welsh Hill Rally and Scottish Hill Rally.
A limited run of Land Rover 90 Hardtop-based cars were prepared for the series by Bowler themselves, with ECU-induced modifications resulting in a hike from the 120 bhp and 266 lbs/ feet of torque of the standard Defender to 175 bhp and 332 lbs/feet for its competition counterpart. A standard gearbox and production-specification suspension geometry was retained, although handling was improved by the fitment of custom-made Bilstein shock absorbers and uprated anti-roll bars. Lightweight 16-inch competition style wheels and all terrain tyres were fitted, as was a substantial MSA-approved rollcage and two competition bucket seats. The carโ€™s rallying credentials were further enhanced by the addition of a dash-mounted Terratrip 303 Rally Computer, Peltor intercom and remotely operated ignition cut-off and fire suppression systems.
