Illinois residents, Joanne and Richard Hansen, drove their 1957 Jaguar in this year’s Colorado Grand. The car had been fully restored 1-1/2 years ago. It had been sitting outdoors in the elements. Panels were found inside the trunk with the original paint color, and that is the Jaguar paint color seen here. Jaguar gained fame with wins in the 24-hour Le Mans race in 1951,1953, 1955, 1956 and 1957.
The 24th annual Colorado Grand made its lunch stop in Hotchkiss on Friday, Sept. 14 at the Delta County Fairgrounds. The Colorado Grand covers a 1,000-mile route which began and ended this year at the Vail Cascade Resort and Spa.
