The Diary SUMMER/FALL
The Diary SUMMER/FALL 2017 September 14 – 24 IAA FRANKFURT MOTOR SHOW The IAA, also known as the Frankfurt Motor Show, is a highlight for car fans everywhere. The show is also your chance to view Jaguar Land Rover’s latest addition to the family in the metal: the new Range Rover Velar. The Velar expands the envelope of Range Rover design with an exterior that is both purposeful and sleek and a cabin that sets new standards for stylish reductionism. In Frankfurt, however, it will have to share the stage with the growing line-up of Jaguar vehicles. All are set to take your breath away. European models shown. 12 THEJAGUAR

The inaugural Invictus Games presented by Jaguar Land Rover were hosted in London in 2014 after HRH Prince Harry, inspired by similar games in the USA, saw how sport and physical activities can help speed up recovery, support rehabilitation and generate wider understanding and respect. Jaguar Land Rover continued its partnership of the Games in 2016 in Orlando, and will now return as the presenting partner for the third time as the games are held this year in Toronto, Canada, from September 23 to 30. This year, the Games will see more than 550 military athletes from 17 nations compete in 12 sporting events, including the Jaguar Land Rover Driving Challenge, as they are cheered on by thousands of spectators and more than 1,500 volunteers.
