Dix Mille Tours of Castellet 2011

7-9 October 2011
Dix Mille Tours del Castellet 2011
11/10/2011 -

The 2011 season of Peter Auto was ended in Provence for the second consecutive year, with the Dix Mille Tours of Castellet, the event reserved to historic cars created last year with the purpose to gather, at least for one weekend, all those cars that have been the Endurance queens for forty years. As expected, the program carried out was of the highest level, showing what valid are the formulas used by the French Manager. Obviously, they didn’t reach the levels of the first edition when, contemporaneously, there were also the celebrations of the fortieth anniversary of Paul Ricard circuit, and neither same levels that could have been obtained in the case of a confirmed presence of FIA Historic Formula 1 and Can Am, as envisaged at the beginning of the year, but certainly, the presence of the unique queens of the Endurance offered a chance to focus a special typology of cars. On the track appeared the Challenge ASVAE, the Trofeo Nastro Rosso, the Sixties’ Endurance, the Group C Racing and as usual the Classic Endurance Racing, divided into two grids like we have already seen this year during Spa Classic. While the last two have been raced on the classic layout of the circuit, as for the other three categories it has been preferred a version less wearying for the engines with the introduction of the Montreal chicane to split Mistral long straight. In addition to the five categories on the track, they have organized some parades of clubs, the introduction of the McLaren MP12-C to the French market with some lucky spectators who had the chance to run some circuit laps, but also an area devoted to Automobilia, where some objects of fans’ veneration didn’t miss. All that to say goodbye to a 2011 that, in spite of what its was feared on the eve, it has been a year to frame for the Patrick Peter’s world of historic cars.
