Dix Mille Tours du Castellet 2020
4-5 April 2020
Circuit Paul Ricard, France
The Dix Mille Tours du Castellet first held in 2010 is the source of a series of events regrouping the different historic grids by Peter Auto. For its tenth anniversary the meeting in the south of France has changed dates.
This year, the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet event, usually organised in the autumn, kicks off the series by Peter Auto season. This change is very fitting for the drivers who can take advantage of a particularly safe environment to find their marks or to get to grips with their new cars. The Paul Ricard circuit, 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 Group C Racing prototypes to achieve a top speed of 300 km/h!
The spectators’ car park is free like the access to the grandstand opposite the pits and the one beside the Grand Prix Hall. The paddocks entry ticket allows its possessors to get near the 300 racing cars and talk to the drivers. It also gives access to the exhibitors’ village.
Clubs and individual owners remain at the heart of the action with an exhibition area reserved inside the racetrack. The condition? A car in good condition, produced before 1966 or among the Happy Few list.
