Dear Friend of the

Enclosed are your application materials for 2011.

This year marks the 23rd year of the Colorado Grand! Our dates this year are September 12-17. We will
be arriving and checking in on Monday and driving Tuesday through Friday. The finish line dinner, benefit
auction and awards will be held Friday evening, with the Concours d’Non-Elegance on Saturday morning.

The Vail Cascade Resort and Spa will be our host hotel on the first and last night of the Grand once
again. We also have a great route planned this year, venturing out of State for lunch for the first time in
the long history of the Grand.

We thank our sponsors for their continued support, especially Mercedes-Benz USA, who joins us for the
16th Year. (MBUSA), not only supports us financially, but provides a fleet of the latest and greatest cars
they have on offer, just in case your trusty steed breaks down. Driving these beautiful cars on the Grand
route definitely helps take the pain away of having to retire your own car during the event. Last year they
even had one of the new SLS’s on hand. Many of our entrants really enjoyed putting it through its paces
on our mountain roads. Chopard and Hyde Park Jewelers are back for a 2nd year. Last year they
donated a wonderful limited edition Jacky Ickx watch that raised a record amount for our charities.
Hagerty Collector Car Insurance, Greenberg Traurig LLC, RM Auctions and Passport Transport all join us
again this year as well.

Our donations last year broke our 20th year anniversary record. Thanks to all of you, we were able to
continue our support of many charities in the mountain communities we visit. Our total donations now
have passed the $3 million mark, with over $1million to our favorite organization, the Colorado State
Patrol Family Foundation.

As you know, we are limited by the Colorado State Patrol in the number of cars we are allowed to run.
There simply isn’t enough room for all of our friends to join us in a given year. Please don’t be
discouraged if you are placed on a waiting list. Entry positions do open up throughout the course of the
summer. The Colorado Grand field is noted for the quality and significance of its entrants cars, and
especially the many pre-war and early cars that come each year. We encourage you to consider applying
with an older racing or sports car if you have the choice.

We are also introducing a new feature for the 2011 Grand. Like the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance,
we have decided to honor the development of the Ferrari GTO by allowing a limited number of these
wonderful cars to run on this year’s Grand. If you own a GTO, please consider bringing it to the 2011
Colorado Grand.

We all look forward to seeing you in September!
