FIA & IMSA Driver Classification: BRONZE
In the 2014 racing season, Walt Bowlin made his Pirelli World Challenge debut in the GT-A Class at one of the toughest circuits in the series, the Honda Grand Prix of Toronto behind the wheel of the Tampa Bay Jaw Surgery Audi R8 LMS Ultra.
Coming from a background that saw him compete in the 2012 Star Mazda Expert Division, Bowlin went on to claim the series title on the strength of eleven victories. No stranger to fast race cars, Bowlin spent the 2008 to 2013 seasons behind the wheels of a Star Mazda, Pro Mazda and Formula Renault cars competing throughout North America.
Not your typical everyday racer, Bowlin is the race on Sunday and go to work on Monday type of driver. Practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery, the Tampa Bay resident is married with two daughters and one son.
The 52-year old competitor will enter his third season of Pirelli World Challenge in 2016 and looks to benefit from the Audi Racing for customer teams program.
