The Defender Challenge targets to both experienced and inexperienced drivers a venue to gain the experience needed to compete in world-class rally-raid events.

For those with no or little experience, the Defender Challenge will offer an extensive solution for gaining a license, training and development and competition experience. The Defender Challenge car is a modified Defender 90 Hard Top powered by factory-standard 2.2-liter diesel engine uprated to 170 bhp by Bowler Motorsport.

All Defender Challenge cars will feature the standard 6-speed manual gearbox, controlled Kuhmo tyres and full MSA-approved roll cage and fire extinguisher system. All Defender Challenge cars are also road-legal and can be driven to events if required. [source: Land Rover]
