The 2010 Colorado Grand

Carrera If any of you happened to see an outrageous vintage sports car – or two or ten or twenty – cruising over Dallas Divide last Tuesday, you were witnessing the running of the 2010 Colorado Grand, a 1,000 mile, five-day driving tour of pre-1961 sports cars that takes place each year during the third week of September and journeys over some of Colorado’s most spectacular mountain passes and scenic byways.

Since its inception in 1989, the Colorado Grand has generated more than $2.8 million via donations and auctions for Colorado charities, local organizations and foundations, as well as set up college assistant funds for students in Hotchkiss, Paonia, Ridgway and Salida.

Mercedes Supported and escorted by the Colorado State Highway Motorcycle Patrol, the annual caravan of classic sports cars includes the most famous and notorious of makes and models. On this year’s run: Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes Benz, Maserati, BMW, Porsche, Bentley, Alfa Romeo, Shelby, Allard, Austin Healey, Bugatti, Siata, OSCA, Aston Martin, MG, Cunningham, Allard and Frazer Nash.

Lots of fun and fun to see. Thanks for spending time here in Colorado!
