The Diamond Rally is a charity car rally for super car enthusiasts and corporations to help raise funds for select charities during a drive from Vancouver to Whistler. The elaborate collection of highend sports cars, luxury vehicles and motorcycles includes brands like Rolls-Royce, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. The rally will kick off at Brian Jessel BMW and end at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler with pit stops in Squamish and Pemberton along the way.

OpenRoad Auto Group has been a long time supporter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to children with life threatening medical conditions.

OpenRoad Auto Group and Jaguar Land Rover Canada marked the grand opening of Jaguar Land Rover Langley with a celebration of the brand’s British heritage and latest innovation last week (May 5).

More than 300 guests were on hand.

Wolfgang Hoffmann, president of Jaguar Land Rover Canada and Christian Chia, president of OpenRoad Auto Group officiated the grand opening ceremony which included an exclusive unveiling of the Jaguar F-PACE performance SUV and the all-new Jaguar XE compact luxury sports sedan.

The new facility is the first dealership in North America to showcase Jaguar Land Rover’s new corporate identity and global dealership design.

“British Columbia remains a high priority region in Jaguar Land Rover Canada’s growth strategy,” Mr. Hoffmann said.

Located in the Langley Auto Collection, Jaguar Land Rover Langley is currently the only dealership in North America to showcase Jaguar Land Rover’s new global dealership design known as “Arch” which seamlessly blends both luxury brands under one roof with a refreshed corporate identity.
