Nov 15, 2016

As huge fans of the work and history of Drew Bowler, the Red Rose Land Rover Club offer their sincerest condolences.  The official statement following his unexpected passing reads as below.

It is with much sadness that we share the news that Bowler founder and off-road motorsport pioneer, Drew Bowler, passed away suddenly on Monday November 14, 2016.

This has come as a huge shock to the whole Bowler team, for whom Drew was an inspiration. Our thoughts are with all of Drew’s family and friends, particularly his wife Diane and children Sam, Grace and Frances, at this difficult time.

Drew did more than anyone to bring rally raid to the UK, and through the succession of innovative and race winning cars he developed, he took Bowler to the highest levels of international motorsport including the Dakar Rally, where the Bowler cars and team spirit shone brightly.

A pioneer, engineer and racer, Drew will be greatly missed by all who knew him, but the thriving Belper-based company that proudly bears his name will live on and continue his vision.
