History -Year Two
We gathered the night prior to the rally for an Italian cocktail party sponsored/hosted by Luxury & Supercar Weekend, Heineken, Bottega Gold and Allwest Insurance. On Saturday, June 14, Brian Jessel BMW hosted a continental breakfast as the rally start point. 108 Luxury and Supercars rallied out of the dealership under police escort onto the Sea to Sky highway with pit stops at Chances Casino, Whistler Olympic Plaza and Four Seasons Resort Whistler.
In 2014, drivers were given the opportunity to raise money for their favorite charity. Dinner was held at Araxi where the rally awards were presented. After-dinner entertainment began with champagne sabering at Bearfoot Bistro lounge and frozen shots in the Belvedere vodka ice room. The following day, the more adventurous drivers continued the rally to Sparkling Hill Resort in Vernon, while the rest of the drivers and navigators golfed, went to Scandinave Spa or just spent a relaxing day in Whistler.
