We are pleased to announce our next road trip event organized by our team at Weissach on June 6th & 7th. We take this opportunity to invite all of you Porsche, Lotus and Lamborghini owners to join us on this spectacular drive that will take us from Vancouver to Vernon and back again; absorbing some of the best scenery BC has to offer. The best part is you get to bring a friend or partner, so you can share the experience!
Our adventure will start with the group meeting at Weissach at 8.30am for coffee and waffles. We will then depart convoy style stopping in Whistler to catch up with everybody before we set off to the Okanagan via the Duffey lake road to Lillooet. A must do for any Top 5 driving list, this 100-km stretch between Pemberton and Lillooet isn’t so much about easy driving as it is about stunning scenery. At times incredibly challenging, with tight switchbacks and several one-lane bridges, the Duffey Lake Road offers intimate views of lakes, mountains, thick forests and wildlife. The group will follow the sparkling lakes and spectacular glaciers of the Coast Mountain range along the Duffey Lake Road (Highway 99) to the Historic Hat Creek Ranch near Cache Creek where we will stop off for a feast of BBQ burgers ( ranch style) and refreshments.
From there we will continue on to Kamloops, travelling east along Highway 1. Enjoy the picturesque scenery following along the Thompson River as it cuts through the desert-like terrain. From Kamloops we travel through Monte Lake region to our final stop of the day at Predator Ridge hotel, in beautiful Vernon. Rich in history and tradition, Predator Ridge is set amongst one of the most scenic backdrops in North America. After checking into our rooms and unwinding from the day, we will join up for a relaxing group buffet dinner and to share stories from the trip.
Day two begins with a relaxing, hearty breakfast, before hitting the road! Driving from Vernon, we head through Swan Lake and Kelowna before reaching sunny Summerland. The district is famous for “Bottleneck drive”, a system of roads connecting a large number of wineries. Curving along the western shoreline of Lake Okanagan and rivalled only by Kelowna in terms of fruit production and processing, numerous fruit stands are a part of the Summerland landscape. When not selling visitors on its fruit, the city’s downtown charms with taverns and shops themed in an Old English style. We will stop at the famous Local Lounge & Grill in Summerland for a flavoursome lunch, before setting off for the final stretch of our drive. From Summerland we drive onto to Chilliwack, a community surrounded by mountains and known for its recreational areas before arriving back home in the early evening.
No congestion, no honking horns, no angry guy in the merge lane not letting you in. Just pure, unblemished driving. So sit back, put on your favourite cruising tunes or podcast, and imagine yourself behind the wheel of your car as it glides down an empty stretch of highway past wildlife, pristine bodies of water and enchanting forests.
Your entire two day package price includes breakfast and lunch on both days, group dinner, premium accommodation at Predator Ridge is $699 for two people sharing. Weissach will donate $50.00 per car to your favorite charity and we urge you to match the dollars.
