Colorado Grand

Location Colorado, USA
Date 11 – 16 September 2023

Of all the American classic car tours, we think this is the best. US rallies tend to be more relaxed than their Euro equivalents, and this is no exception, being non-competitive and covering 1000 miles through the spectacular Rocky Mountains over five days during the fall. Around 85 pre-1961 cars take part every year. Porsche 356s, Alfa Giuliettas and Big Healeys are the starting point, Gullwings, Cobras and Ferrari 250s are almost run-of-the mill, and one-off special sports cars aren’t unusual. Bugatti Type 57, Talbot-Lago, Delahaye and pre-war Alfa? Yep! This is one serious event. It’s been in existence since 1989; Englewood car fan Bob Sutherland started it with the aim of raising money for charity. It certainly achieved that, generating around $500,000 a year for Colorado causes. To date, it’s raised no less than $6.5 million. Entries open every March, with the event taking place the following September.
