DIX MILLE TOURS
30 AUGUST – 3 SEPTEMBER 2024
📍 Paul Ricard circuit
🏁 Track races
In 2010, the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet was the first meeting regrouping the different historic grids by Peter Auto. Indeed, the start of the current series of events.
The Circuit Paul Ricard, dedicated to private testing for many years, pardons errors thanks to its large asphalt run-off areas that cause less bodywork damage than the more commonly used gravel traps. This event has another particularity as it is the only one in the season to use two different layouts depending on the series: the one used for the French Formula 1 Grand Prix and the classic layout without the “North” chicanes. In the second configuration the 1.8-km long Mistral straight allows the Grand Prix de France de Formule 1 and the “classics”, without the Northern chicane. In this second version, the Mistral straight runs for 1,800 metres, allowing the Group C Racing prototypes to achieve a top speed of 300 km/h!
