Inspired by the spirit of adventure, Defender revealed a bold new look for the 2024 Defender Rally Series UK. The tough, durable Defender 90 will see drivers take on challenging but exhilarating courses across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. 

This year’s UK Rally Championship is the largest in the competition’s history, boasting 16 driver and co-driver pairings. This season’s drivers include a range of competitors with diverse motorsport backgrounds, from novices and track-day enthusiasts to experienced circuit and off-road racers. 


The championship line-up consists of seven gruelling events, which have been designed to test the drivers across a range of different terrains. From these events across the UK and Ireland, selected drivers from the Rally Championship will get the opportunity to compete in the European Baja Championships later in the year.

The Defender Rally vehicles are closely related to the P300 production models with added safety features, including race-specification seats, FIA-approved roll cages and fire extinguishers. The vehicle uses the same powerful P300PS Ingenium petrol engines, responsive eight-speed automatic gearbox and the advanced All-Wheel Drive system as showroom models. 

Each specially prepared Defender 90 will feature a unique take on the new 2024 championship livery, customised to suit each competitor with a statement colour behind a signature black pattern. 


The Rally Series will showcase how capable the all-terrain Defender 90 is in the toughest of environments. The skilled drivers will be pushed to the absolute limit and prove just how durable the Defender 90 really is as they embark on a variety of punishing challenges across the UK and Ireland.  


Round one of the Defender Rally Series kicked off earlier this month at the Walters Arena in Wales and was an overwhelming success. The third instalment of the competition promises to be an action-packed season of epic adventures and really is one not be missed.
