Land Rover Defender Racing Is What I Want To Do All Day Every Day

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

Remember the one-make Land Rover Defender rally series set up by Bowler, makers of the most insane off-roaders of the all? Well, it's a muddy blast. We should all move to Wales.

Can you imagine a rally stage where a diesel Defender 90 with 170 horsepower is faster than an ex-WRC Subaru Impreza rally car? Welcome to the Defender Challenge!


These guys race slightly upgraded 2.2 Defender Hard Tops from Wales through England all the way to the final stage in Scotland in November. Sounds like fun? You bet it is.

Good people, awesome cars, stunning stages and low costs to keep all this accessible. That's how a racing series should be like. I bet they all drink ales after a long day too...

I'd be onboard for a Wrangler variant in NA (US/CA/MX).
