Colorado Grand cars on display in Vail Saturday
VAIL — Cars in the Colorado Grand, a 1,000-mile road ride that travels the Colorado high country in September of each year, will be on display in Lionshead Saturday.
On Friday, more than 100 Colorado Grand participants culminated their multi-day journey through the state.
The event, which begins and ends in Vail, is a charitable event that has donated in excess of $3.3 million to worthy organizations throughout Colorado since it began in 1989, including providing college scholarships to students in many of the communities through which it passes each year.
With a wide array of vintage and historic racing and sports cars, the likes of pre-1960’s Aston Martins,Bentleys, Ferraris and Jaguars, the Grand features a rare collection of unique vehicles. Their drivers, coming from all over the world, have been on the road since early this week, driving some of Colorado’s most scenic roadways before returning back to Vail on Friday.
The event continues today as the vintage cars make their return to line the streets of Lionshead from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. with a unique opportunity for the public to view these very special cars up close at the annual Concourse d’Non-Elegance.
