We are thrilled to be hosting drivers of the 2019 Colorado Bentley tour at the Inn in just a few days!
This group of 15 vintage cars includes W.O. Bentley’s, Rolls-Royce’s and Triumphs. The some 30 participants are coming from all over the US and England to Colorado to celebrate 100 years of Bentley. The drivers will start on the 10th of August in Conifer, then drive to Del Norte, stay three nights in Telluride, one night in Redstone and three nights in Aspen, before returning to Conifer.
A little history about Bentley:
Bentley Motors was founded by W.O. Bentley and his brother in 1919. A 3-litre model won the 24 hours race at Le Mans in 1924, subsequent models won again in 1927, 1928, 1929 & 1930. In 1931 the company was taken over by Rolls Royce. A total of 3061 W.O. Bentley’s were produced in Cricklewood in England. More than 50% of the cars survived. The cars are still very popular today as they still go up to 100 mph, therefore can easily keep up with modern highway speeds.
