Love hot cars? Then get to Brian Jessel BMW tomorrow morning

The Diamond Car Rally raises funds for local charities and peels away from 2311 Boundary Rd. Saturday morning

Although Vancouver has Canada’s largest per capita ownership of supercars, there will be an extra concentration of super-BMWs, Lambos and Bentleys on the local roads tomorrow morning.The reason? Saturday, May 14 is the Diamond Rally where 100+ supercars meet up in Vancouver—at the Brian Jessel BMW dealership—and cruise the Sea-to-Sky Highway north to Whistler with stops in Squamish and Pemberton.“The rally first started as a way for local luxury car owners to show off their rides and bond over the ownership of such precision machines,” says Brian Jessel marketing manager Diana Zoppa. “But, in typical Vancouver fashion, it was quickly adapted to raise money for great and worthy charities—from VGH facilities to cancer research.”Local car buffs are invited to come by Brian Jessel BMW at 2311 Boundary Rd. just south of Lougheed Highway from 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. tomorrow to drool over McLarens, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Ferraris, and, of course, BMWs.Speaking of Vancouver’s preferred luxury car brand, Brian Jessel managing partner Jim Murray will be participating as well, supporting the Pancreas Centre B.C. in the newly arrived BMW M4 GTS. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because the BMW supercar was the talk of the Vancouver Autoshow.Here’s the Vancouver portion of the lineup for what promises to be an epic day…8 A.M.Participants check-in and the public checks out the jaw-dropping machines at Brian Jessel BMW (2311 Boundary Rd.)9:30 A.M.Welcome ceremony10 A.M.Official rally start and departure via Second Narrows bridge onto Sea-to-Sky Highway 99
