AMR Gold-Belt Byway off-road tour
Aug 27 all-day

Join us in your Porsche or other off-road vehicle on the Gold-Belt Byway Off Road Tour.

We will meet at Porsche Colorado Springs at 8 a.m.  Please park next door at Colorado Springs Powersports (945 Motor City Drive).

Please complete the PCA Off-Road Driving Tour Self-Inspection Safety Checklist.pdf before arriving and bring to check-in (required to participate in this off-road tour)

 

The tour will take you through Phantom Canyon, lunch in Victor and continue along Shelf Road, ending in Cañon City.

 

This could be considered a group training drive, for club members to go out on their own later in the year for leaf peeping season.

(Leaf peeping is an informal term in the United States and Canada for the activity in which people travel to view and photograph the fall foliage in areas where leaves change colors in autumn. An organized excursion for leaf peeping is known as a foliage tour or color tour.)

 

Phantom Canyon Road

This road is one of the most scenic and historic drives in Colorado. The route increases in elevation from 5,500 to 9,500 feet and offers the chance to see a wide range of plants and wildlife in their natural setting. The gravel road follows the route of the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad built in 1894 as a connection from Florence to the goldfields of Cripple Creek and Victor.

The unique bridges and tunnels offer a visual link to the area’s historic past. The road condition and narrow bridges encourage people to slow down and view the scenery. Twelve stations were established along the F&CC Railroad grade to service the trains hauling coal and supplies upgrade and gold ore downgrade to Florence’s smelters. As you drive the route, interpretive displays and signs designate the historic sites along the Gold Belt Line.

 

EARLY LUNCH STOP Gold Camp Bakery

They offer a wide selection of German and American items. Their German menu selection is not as sweet as the typical American pastries. For lunch they offer sandwiches on their freshly baked breads, salads, soups, chicken pot pies, miner’s pasties. They have a wide selection of cakes, pies and cookies, etc. We can call ahead to order pies and desserts for take home (Address: 112 S 3rd St, Victor, CO 80860).

 

Shelf Road

Shelf Road transformed an untraveled wilderness into a major route for the stagecoaches and freight wagons traveling between the Arkansas Valley and the Cripple Creek Gold Mining District. The rugged route’s name is ‘THE SHELF’, a five-mile stretch of road that hugs the sheer rock walls of above Fourmile Creek.

Originally called the Cañon City and Cripple Creek Toll Road, Cañon City’s business leaders financed the road. The toll collectors lived in small cabins nestled at either end of the Shelf and collected tolls every time a horse, wagon or stagecoach passed.

The toll varied from 30 cents to $1.75 for single riders, wagons, and stagecoaches. Ranchers driving cattle along the road paid for each head. Eventually, competition from railroads put the toll road out of business. Fremont County purchased the road and opened it as a free road. This road has made for a memorable trip since its construction in 1892 so be prepared for a driving adventure.

ATTENTION IN THE PADDOCK! ATTENTION IN THE PADDOCK! 

Registration for the next AMR HPDE is now OPEN!

September 10-11, 2022

La Junta is a perfect track for novices and experienced drivers alike. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to take your car on a racetrack – but felt either intimidated or worried it would “hurt” your car – this is the perfect place to start. It won’t hurt your car – your car was designed for this type of spirited driving! The 1.7-mile-long track with 7 turns is a great place to learn. Novices (those who have not driven a track ever – or are very new to the sport) are paired with an in-car instructor to show you the ropes and give you the confidence to take the drivers’ seat and safely navigate the course! HPDE’s are not races, there is no official timing and no awards for first place. All drivers can enjoy the increased horsepower felt from being at a lower altitude – bonus!

Register here :910 to 911 HPDE

Drive Both Days $265 Drive One Day* $185

*One day drivers that require an instructor can only register for Saturday. We cannot accommodate Sunday, one day instructed drivers.

HPDE – 910 to 911 HPDE AMR
Sep 10 – Sep 11 all-day

ATTENTION IN THE PADDOCK! ATTENTION IN THE PADDOCK! 

Registration for the next AMR HPDE is now OPEN!

September 10-11, 2022

La Junta is a perfect track for novices and experienced drivers alike. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to take your car on a racetrack – but felt either intimidated or worried it would “hurt” your car – this is the perfect place to start. It won’t hurt your car – your car was designed for this type of spirited driving! The 1.7-mile-long track with 7 turns is a great place to learn. Novices (those who have not driven a track ever – or are very new to the sport) are paired with an in-car instructor to show you the ropes and give you the confidence to take the drivers’ seat and safely navigate the course! HPDE’s are not races, there is no official timing and no awards for first place. All drivers can enjoy the increased horsepower felt from being at a lower altitude – bonus!

Register here :910 to 911 HPDE

Drive Both Days $265 Drive One Day* $185

*One day drivers that require an instructor can only register for Saturday. We cannot accommodate Sunday, one day instructed drivers.

La Junta Raceway, Home of Victory Motorsports has a limited amount of RV Spaces available – please contact allan@lajuntaraceway.net for availability and pricing.

Hampton Inn & Holiday Inn Express La Junta have offered discounted accommodations for this weekend for our members.

Please see Registration Information and Details on the registration site.
