History of the Colorado Concours d’Elegance & Exotic Sports Car Show

This event was the brain child of two Rocky Mountain Region Porsche Club of America members; Tom Scott and Stim Kennedy. In 1983, these individuals presented the idea for a car show to the Board of Directors of RMR with the idea of making the event a fundraiser for a deserving local charity. In the first two years, 1984 and 1985, the show was part of the “Carousel Days”, a benefit for The Marvin Davis Children’s Diabetes Foundation, and was held in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center parking lot. There were approximately 30 cars on display and the contribution for the charity was about $1,200.

In 1986, the charity was changed to Cerebral Palsy of Colorado (name changed to Ability Connection Colorado in 2013) Children’s Program when the Davis Family moved to California. The event was then moved to the University Hills Shopping Center and was there for four or five years.

In 1993, the show was moved to the present location, Arapahoe Community College.

Now in its 33rd year, Colorado Concours has raised over $1.5M for the Creative Options for Early Childhood Education Program at Ability Connection Colorado.

2016 Mclaren 675LT Review
Emphasizing improved air motion, less weight, and much more power, the Mclaren 675LT will basically be offered as a scarcely street legitimate race auto. It may bear all the proper markings of something you’d discover on an open parkway, in the same way as headlights, a windshield, turn flags, and tires with furrows, however given the suitable environment, the Mclaren 675LT would helpfully trounce pretty much any rival in a challenge of velocity. On the other hand, this additional execution additionally take a swing at a gigantically swelled cost over the $265,500 650S.

2016 Mclaren 675LT Exterior

Of course, the Mclaren 675LT is basically an altered 650S, and McLaren made a huge effort to improve the wonderful 650S even. In advance, the Mclaren 675LT gimmicks the majority of the key 650S signals, including the swoopy air admissions that appear to stream specifically from the headlights and the carbon-fiber lower splitter. On the 675LT, on the other hand, there are included vertical end plates the furthest edges of the front guard, which ought to help keep things more steady at higher rates. More air work was carried out down the sides, as McLaren introduced a set of stretched out entryway ledges to help with solidness. Moreover, there is one littler air admission included just under the principle motor air consumption.

The back end is the place the “LT” some piece of the new supercar’s name truly comes to fruition. Likewise new on the backside are the carbon-fiber wings, twin round fumes channels produced using titanium, an open back belt for better high temperature extraction, extra louvers on the polycarbonate back window, air admissions on the external edges of the back guard, and another carbon-fiber back diffuser.

Bob Bondurant - FIA World Championship 50th anniversary

Bob Bondurant has a compelling reason to celebrate the Fourth of July this year. The American Independence Day will be the 50th anniversary of a memorable victory in the 12 Hours of Reims, France. The win clinched the 1965 FIA World Manufacturers' Championship for Bondurant and Shelby American, the first U.S. manufacturer to win an FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) title. Shelby's Ford-powered cars won the highest class of international Grand Touring racing.

After a convincing GT win in the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, Bondurant and Shelby were ready for a championship in 1965. Bondurant had already earned five wins on the demanding tracks of Sebring (USA), Monza (Italy), Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium), Nürburgring (Germany), and Rossfeld (Germany) when he arrived in France for the July 4th race. He drove a powerful finishing stint in a Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe to take his sixth win of the season, boosting Shelby and Ford to the championship over the previously dominant Ferrari effort. Bondurant later added a triumph at Enna (Italy), for seven wins in 10 races in 1965. He started from the pole position for almost every race, drove the final stint to each victory and set a lap record at the Nürburgring circuit that held for 15 years. A season to be savored, indeed.
