James Bond Lead Stunt Driver Mark Higgins Wins In Bowler Defender Challenge

James Bond stunt driver Mark Higgins and co-driver Claire Williams won the North Wales leg of the 2022 Defender Bowler Challenge in Dolgellau in a time of 55 minutes and 12 seconds. The duo finished one minute and 41 seconds ahead of their nearest rival.

The duo drove a Bowler Defender 90, with unique livery inspired by 60 years of James Bond films and its lasting partnership with Land Rover. Higgins has been at the wheel in the last four James Bond films, including No Time To Die (2021). 

The one-off Bowler Defender 90 featured a special 007 60th logo on its roof and sides in a trademark satin black and gold finish, with a host of performance and competition upgrades by the team at Bowler.
