| Mark your calendar! The dates for the 2012 event are September 10, to September 15, 2012.
In its twenty fourth year, this remarkable event has continued to provide help for Colorado Charities. To date, the event has contributed more than $3 million dollars.
The Colorado Grand is an annual charity tour for 1960 and earlier sports and race cars of distinction. The event was founded in 1989 by Englewood automotive enthusiast Bob Sutherland. Every September at the peak of the fall color season approximately 85 vintage cars are driven in this relaxed, non-competitive event, covering 1,000 miles through the Rockies in five days.
The tour attracts entrants from around the world and always includes several 1920's and 1930's cars. Typical makes include Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, Porsche, Bugatti, Alfa Romeo, Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Maserati, Allard, and such exotic names as Amilcar, Cisitalia, Squire, Delahaye, and Talbot-Lago.
