Current TAA Formula Ford series leader John Leffler debuted his Bowin P6F at fourth round of Formula Ford Championship (Amaroo Park) on the 4th March 1973. Leading up to the race he had completed an extensive test programme with the new car and had found it substantially faster through the fast downhill Dunlop Loop. "I can take the loop on full power while in the old car (the Bowin P4A P4A-116-72) I had to back off," Leffler stated at the time.

Leffler's P6F was one of four new Bowin's racing on the 4th March 1973. David Mingay -P6F-122-72, Len Searle P6F-126-73 & Geoff Spence P6F-124-72 also drove new Bowin P6F cars in the fourth round of the TAA series championship.

Geoffrey Brabham (son of Jack Brabham) took ownership of this Bowin car around Dec 1973.

John Leffler won the Fourth round to consolidate his already strong lead in the TAA driver to Europe pointscore. Leffler who had led the series after two wins and a sixth placing in his Bowin P4A, had his debut race in the new Bowin P6F.
