Despite being a small family based outfit, Team Sowter takes on the sport’s big boys in the National Bangers, and made a big impact in 2013.
Similar to another Sussex team, The Bears from Newhaven, The Sowters have quickly gained a strong reputation for travelling the length of the country attending the major meetings, and then dishing out some epic hits on their rivals.
This season Arlington favourites Carl and Taylor Sowter have strengthened their team by recruiting the collective talents of the Filmer family from Lewes. Formerly with the Wonky Donkey team, the Filmers wanted to take their driving in a different direction.
In Tom and Jack Filmer they have signed up two young, raw and fearless drivers to their ranks. With them comes Dad Trevor, the passionate patriarch of the family, and the valuable support of Ripleys Autospares.
All together, they now make a formidable team that could well dominate at Arlington Stadium for years to come.
