Teams Gear Up for Invictus Games

Land Rover Frisco is so excited about the upcoming Invictus Games! The Invictus Games is an “international adaptive sporting event for wounded, injured, and sick servicemen and women” that Jaguar Land Rover is a key sponsor for! The very first Invictus Games were held in 2014 in London, United Kingdom. 17 nations will be competing in this year’s Games that will be held in Toronto, Canada in September.

Land Rover Frisco is excited that the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge will be the opening event of the Games! The team from the United Kingdom (where Jaguar Land Rover’s headquarters are) have been hard at work preparing. Only two members of the team will compete in the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge.

The team started the day working on their speed and precision in Jaguar F-PACEs in a slalom challenge at Cotswold Airport. Later in the day the team worked on their planning, teamwork, and communication skills while off-roading routes in Land Rover Discoverys near Eastnor Castle.

Land Rover ambassadors, Olympic Medallist, Zara Tindall, and England Rugby World Cup winner, Lewis Moody, were with the team to provide encouragement and insight as they prepared.

“The Invictus Games is a very special event, and I’ve loved meeting all the competitions here today,” Zara Tindall said. “It was really hard to select just two people to take part in the Driving Challenge in Toronto; each and every one of those we met has the will to win and would do a fantastic job. Once again, it’s an absolute honor for me to be involved with Jaguar Land Rover and with the Invictus Games and I am really looking forward to watching these guys when they actually get to compete at the Games.”

The 2017 Invictus Games will take place September 23 – 20. In addition to the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, events include archery, cycling, golf, swimming, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, and more!

Land Rover Frisco is excited to cheer on the United States team as they compete!

Jaguar Land Rover Wins Car Design Awards

The Car Design Awards, hosted by Auto&Design magazine, specifically celebrate models and brands that they feel have contributed to the evolution of automobile design. A panel of journalists from all over the world choose winners in three different categories: Brand Design Language, Production Cars, and Concept Cars.

Jaguar Land Rover recently participated in the Turin Motor Show in Turin, Italy, where the Car Design Award ceremony took place. We at Land Rover Frisco are proud to announce Jaguar Land Rover took home two Car Design Awards. Land Rover won Best Brand Design Language, and Jaguar won the Concept Car category with the Jaguar I-PACE Concept.

The panel of judges deliberated and decided that the Land Rover design team had done the best job at interpreting a formal design language across the entire Land Rover family of vehicles. This was showcased most recently in the release of the new Land Rover Range Rover Velar. The Range Rover Velar’s incredible beauty, modernity, and showmanship are unrivaled.

“It’s great to be recognized for he hard work and creative endeavor of the whole Land Rover team,” Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Chief Design Office, said during is acceptance speech. “This is a true team effort and one that will continue the transformation of our business.”

The Jaguar I-PACE Concept is Jaguar’s first completely electric performance SUV. It is easy to see why it would win the Concept Car category. The Jaguar I-PACE Concept is a preview for the Jaguar I-PACE which is expected to be available for purchase in the second half of 2018.

In addition to winning the Best Brand Design Language category, Land Rover placed second in the Production Cars category with the Land Rover Range Rover Velar. The Range Rover Velar will go on sale later this year, starting at $49,900.

Range Rover Explores Pacific Northwest

Land Rover has teamed up with Magnum Photos once again to bring another series of photographs for ‘Ultimate Vistas.’ This time, Land Rover and Magnum Photos have partnered with photographer Michael Christopher Brown to highlight landscapes from the United States’ Pacific Northwest.

Brown started his trip in Portland, Oregon behind the wheel of a production Land Rover Range Rover 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged and headed north towards Washington state.

The Range Rover was the perfect vehicle for the road trip because of its exceptional versatility. The Range Rover drove perfectly through snow, sand dunes, and rocky hillsides as Brown searched both urban and rural parts of the Northwest to photograph incredible vistas.

Along the route, Brown and his crew stopped along Chuckanut Drive, climbed Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainier, and Mount Baker (all active volcanoes), and visited Strawberry Hill in Skagit Valley. From there the crew moved on to Seattle until they drove along the Pacific coast. Finally, they took a ferry to the remote San Juan Islands.

“I’m often driving off-road to go mountain biking, snowboarding, or hiking and having a vehicle that can handle confidently a variety of road and off-road conditions is key,” Brown said. “I always have a plan for a shoot but it’s important to remain open to other possibilities and the Range Rover allowed us to do that. Often the best pictures happen on the way and way back from a shoot. And while on the shoot, sometimes if I just stop what I’m doing and look around there are often unexpected, serendipitous surprises!”

The images Brown captured are extraordinary and really capture the essence of the Pacific Northwest. We are proud to partner with Michael Christopher Brown and Magnum Photos to help create such magnificent works of art.
