The RMR Grand Loop Tour is a unique opportunity to visit some of the Rocky Mountain West’s most scenic places. In an epic 4 day tour, drivers and their companions will travel with like-minded Porsche enthusiasts starting from Ft. Collins. This extensively planned, 700 mile driving tour bypasses dull interstate highways in favor of more exciting two-lane highways. These roads are often marked in blue on road maps. Travelers may encounter antelope, bison, elk, deer, and even a moose or a bear, so stay on the lookout for wildlife and bring your best camera! The tour officially ends in Durango, Colorado. Adventurers may consider taking the opportunity to use Durango as a pivot point for a Utah or Arizona Parks adventure before heading home.
The tour begins on WEDNESDAY morning, July 27th leaving Fort Collins, CO heading north to Laramie, WY. The drive crosses the Snowy Range with a private lunch in the small town of Encampment, WY. Tour leaves the Divide Restaurant continuing west across Wyoming before turning south at Baggs, WY, and then back into Colorado. The route ends in Palisade, CO for two nights at our favorite Wine Country Inn. Here we will enjoy a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception on Wednesday evening.
THURSDAY we will enjoy a bus tour around Palisade to visit wineries, a distillery, and a fruit farm/stand. We may possibly even go to an Alpaca farm! Lunch will be included. Since the tour begins at 10am and returns around 3pm, you would have time to visit another business close by or drive to Enstrom Candies in Grand Junction.
The day concludes with a wonderful buffet dinner at the Wine Country Inn.
FRIDAY we regroup for a short drive to Gateway, CO, for admission to the Gateway Canyons Auto Museum. This grand location houses the privately-owned Hendricks Collection that displays 100 years of American automotive history. Lunch at the Gateway Canyon Resort is
included. Driving resumes south through the fabulous Gateway Canyon on the way to the final destination, Durango, CO, for two nights.
SATURDAY in Durango gives participants 2 choices. One choice is to be on your own to explore Durango and vicinity. Another choice is our optional ride on the Durango & Silverton narrow gauge railroad to Silverton.
This Optional Activity ($143 per person) includes a step back in time as we enjoy a leisurely trip to yesteryear riding 3 1/2 hours on the Durango & Silverton train. With 2 hours in the historic mining town of Silverton we are able to enjoy the sights, shopping, food, and libations. Return to Durango is via the deluxe motor coach bus.

For August, we present the “No Cones of Shame” autocross, with this event’s charity featuring the Front Range German Shepherd Rescue, dedicated to rescuing and re-homing purebred GSDs.
Are you familiar with Autocross? Autocross is a performance driving experience conducted in a safe environment at relatively low speeds (2nd gear). You will not hurt your car and more importantly you will not hurt yourself. Autocross is a lot fun and provides small doses of adrenaline rush that will keep you smiling for days. You will gain additional confidence in your driving ability, learn the limits of your car’s braking capabilities, practice correct seating, hand, feet and vision positions, as well as push and perhaps exceed the limits of your tire’s adhesion capabilities.
By the way, autocross is a huge social event and a great time to meet new club members and visit with friends.
If you can volunteer to assist the chair in setting up the course and other activities to make this a successful event please contact us!
