Previous DriversAccolades
Ryan Bold (2015-)Top 10 Finish at Round 2 2023. Best Presented Vehicle CZ 2020

One of few vehicles running an IFS setup, this buggy features all the bells & whistles with a 6.0L V8, hydro lockers and rear steer to make it one of the more agile vehicles in D Class!

Refined over many seasons, the Bold Built buggy is coming into its own having scored a maiden Top 10 last season at the Wairarapa!

Ryan Bold is a long timer competitor in D Class. Originally running a Rover powered buggy back in 2006, before switching to the co-driver seat alongside Layne Jones in his new build for 2008. The duo would achieve their first win at Thames in 2009, going on to place 9th overall that season!
