Land Rover will support the Bowler Team in the season 2006.



The car-manufacturer Land Rover is to support the Defender-based Bowler Wildcat in this year’s season of FIA organised cross-country rallies. Bowler Off Road Ltd built their first vehicle, based on an 88-inch Land Rover chassis in 1984 and the latest Bowler Wildcat dates from 2000.

The Bowler "Wildcat" features a space frame chassis/roll cage fabricated from T45 tubing clad in stylish aluminium panels designed to give easy access to equipment. The Bowler Wildcat uses Discovery front and rear axles, a custom suspension system following Land Rover design philosophy and is powered by a variety of Land Rover petrol and diesel engines.

The vehicle being supported by Land Rover will carry full Land Rover livery and be powered by a modified 2.5 litre, 5-cylinder Td5 engine. The Land Rover supported vehicle will compete in a series of FIA organised cross-country rallies around the world. Featuring both amateur and works teams and with between 70 and 120 competitors the events take place in such diverse locations as France, Italy, Russia, United Arab Emirates and Australia.
