The rally assembled passionate Porsche enthusiasts from across the Lower Mainland and Washington to enjoy their vehicles while raising funds for the Pemberton Firefighters Association. The day began in Langley led by OpenRoad Auto Group president, Christian Chia, driving a heart-pounding Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid supercar, one of only 918 in the world. “It was quite the sight to see all the Porsches revving up for an amazing ride to Whistler,” said Michael Chase, general manager of Porsche Centre Langley. The rally made its way to the Pemberton Airport, where ralliers had the opportunity to race each other on the closed runway following a high-speed demonstration by Chia in the 918 Spyder and OpenRoad Racing’s driver, Remo Ruscitti, in a 911 GT3 Cup race car. The event culminated in a dinner reception at the Four Seasons Resort Whistler. The rally was organized by Luxury Alliance Group, the hosts of Diamond Rally and Luxury & Supercar Weekend.
