Land Rover is the official sponsor of the 2014 Defender Challenge by Bowler, a continuation of the strategic partnership disclosed in 2012 between the carmaker and Bowler Motorsport.

The series will be regulated by the MSA (Motor Sports Association) and each Defender Challenge car will be FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) compliant that allows participant s to compete internationally. 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]
