Drew Bowler, the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Bowler Mo­tor­sport, passed away sud­denly on Novem­ber 14.

Bowler’s in­volve­ment in off-road com­pe­ti­tion started in the early 1980s when he suc­cess­fully tri­alled a Land Rover which he had built him­self. He moved on to com­pet­ing in off-road race events as well as build­ing and pre­par­ing ve­hi­cles for other com­peti­tors, quickly gain­ing a rep­u­ta­tion as a pi­o­neer­ing en­gi­neer.

Bowler Mo­tor­sport was formed in 1985 and cars such as the Tom­cat and Wild­cat proved to be very com­pet­i­tive in var­i­ous off-road dis­ci­plines such as comp sa­faris and hill ral­lies.

More re­cently the com­pany has sup­ported the Bowler De­fender Chal­lenge and pro­duced the Bull­dog ve­hi­cle.

BCCC com­peti­tor Ryan Cooke said: “Drew was an am­bas­sador to the sport and it was a priv­i­lege to have been in­volved with him.”
