Land Rover Canada sponsors Quebec team in Moroccan rally

Bramalea, Ontario – Land Rover Canada will sponsor Quebecers Sophie Deraspe and France Senécal, who together make up the Claritin Liberator team for the 2003 edition of the Rally Aicha des Gazelles.

As one of the team’s sponsors, Land Rover Canada will cover costs of a Land Rover Defender, which the team will use during the rally in Morocco. Also, the company along with Decarie Motors, a Montreal Land Rover retailer, will provide the team with a Land Rover Freelander for promotional purposes, in order to raise funds and awareness for the event.

“Land Rover Canada is proud to sponsor Sophie and France in this exciting event,” said Jacques Parent, vice president of Marketing for Aston Martin Jaguar Land Rover Canada. “With their impressive backgrounds, I have no doubt they will go far and make us all proud.”

On April 8, the Claritin Liberator team departed for Morocco where the 2003 Rally Aicha des Gazelles will take place from April 17 until April 24. Throughout their journey, France and Sophie will keep a daily journal in which they will share their experiences and thoughts in the form of short reports to be broadcast on the Rock Détente radio network. The public will have the opportunity to follow their trials and tribulations by visiting www.lesgazellesliberator.com.
