GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. On any other Saturday, Jason Grosse would probably be working on his house, but this Saturday he’ll be checking out more than 30 Ferraris and other high-performance cars.Grosse and other members of the Glenwood Springs Professional Firefighters Association will present the cars and accept donations while participants in an Annual Ferrari Fall Foliage Tour visit the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.”I’m kind of a car geek so that’s why I’m heading this up from our end,” said Grosse.More than 30 different Ferraris, Porsches and other high-end cars ranging in value from about $200,000 to $1 million will be on hand.”Basically, it’s going to be for the car enthusiasts that want to come check out these cars,” he said.Firefighters will sell raffle tickets for $5, or $20 for five tickets, for a chance for two visitors to win a ride on the next leg of the tour. One will ride in a Ferrari 550 Maranello and the other in a rare Ford GT. Proceeds will benefit the firefighter’s association.After Glenwood, the tour stops in Palisade to put on a car show and to check out the Colorado Mountain Winefest. A ride back from Palisade for the winners can be arranged if necessary.The Ferrari Club of America’s Rocky Mountain Region starts the tour on Saturday in Denver. On Sunday it heads over the Colorado National Monument, then to Gateway. The tour winds back through the Roaring Fork Valley a second time via McClure Pass, and through Aspen and Independence Pass on Monday.The public is invited to view the cars in Glenwood Springs at no cost Saturday, Sept. 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. in the parking lot for the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.
