September means the end of summer vacation, but the automotive festivities continue, including the Paris Motor Show at the very end of the month. We'll have a full team coverage in the City of Lights, but that's almost a month away. Between now and then there are hundreds of car-related events to keep all but the most rabid gearheads satisfied.

While our coverage of Monterey and the Woodward Dream Cruise last month gave us a year's worth of classic and collectible car memories, September has a lot more to offer for classic car fans. Here's some highlights:
If you'd like to buy your own classic, there are plenty of auctions in September as well: RM Auctions: Auburn Fall Collector Car Auction, Worldwide Auctioneers Auburn Auction, The Branson Auction, Vintage Toy Vehicle Auction, Mecum St. Charles Auction and the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction.

Racing fans can take in Formula 1 action during the Italian and Singapore Grands Prix. NASCAR has stops at Atlanta, Richmond, New Hampshire and Dover. IndyCar heads to Kentucky and Japan in September before wrapping up the 2010 season in Miami in October. The WRC hosts the Rally Japan this month, while the ALMS heads to Georgia for the Petit Le Mans at the end of the month. Grand-Am fanciers can catch the last race of the season at Miller Motorsports Park. Two-wheel fans can see the AMA Pro Superbike Championship at New Jersey Motorsports Park.

If none of those events appeal to you, check out our Google Calendar after the jump for even more listings, all with detailed info and links. And please don't forget to use the comments section to add or modify listings.

As always, we want to give a shout-out to our two favorite sources; The New York Times automotive calendar for national and international stuff, and our buddy Dave Lindsay's SoCalCarCulture pages for local stuff here in Southern California. Dave's photographic coverage of these local events is fantastic. Check out this month's event calendar below and start adding to it by leaving us a note in the comments. If you'd like your events listed on our calendar, please send an email to frank.filipponio - at - weblogsinc - dot - com.

      Also what about the Grand Prix Festival at Watkins Glen. Surely you guys must be aware of the historical significance of The Glen.

      This is the weekend of September 10-12 at Watkins Glen in Upstate New York.

      You forgot the Colorado Grand:

      The Colorado Grand is a rally covering over 1,000 miles through some of the most spectacular roads and scenery anywhere. Our event takes place the third week of September during the start of the Fall when the trees are beginning their remarkable change. The hill sides are rich with the beautiful colors of the season.

      Entries are limited to 85 sports and racing cars of distinction built prior to 1961.

        Forgot to add, it's Sept 12-17, and I'm in no way affiliated with it. I stumbled across it one year when I happened to be in Vail and the variety of vintage cars was astounding.

      Actually the Rolex Grand-Am race at Miller Motorsports park is the last race of the season, not next to last.

      Watkins Glen Grand Prix Festival on Friday, September 10!

      Watch 100 or so vintage race cars parade around the original Watkins Glen street circuit almost literally within reach, if you like. Also, SVRA vintage races all weekend at the track, as well as a concours downtown (Both d'elegance and LeMons).

      My favorite car event of the year.

      Petit Le Mans! Waiting for my tickets to arrive any day now. It's my first time so I'm really excited to see all the cars I watched at the 'big' Le Mans on tv.
