The Ferrari 275 GTB 1965 of Noblet-Guichet finished 7th in class in the first edition of the Dix Mille Tours at Paul Ricard.

The first edition of the ‘Dix Mille Tours du Castellet’ did take place at the Paul Ricard race track, on October 9-10.  The Dix Mille Tours event is a 100% historic meeting place and was organized in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the circuit Paul Ricard, 40 km North East of Marseille.

Famous guests and living legends did attend, like Alain Prost, Jean Pierre Jabouille, Gérard Larrousse, Olivier Panis, Jean Pierre Beltoise and Henri Pescarolo.

The main event was organized by Peter Auto and this time consisted of five race grids, three of which were assembled by Peter Auto himself.

Peter Auto always uses the same simple and well tested recipe to ensure success. Prestigious grids both in their diversity and quality, great respect for the history of motor sports and the racing cars, high quality services for the competitors, readable and pedagogic paddocks for the public, renowned and recurrent partners, rigorous organisation.

The three Peter Auto grids were Classic Endurance Racing, the brand new Trofeo Nastro Rosso and Sixties Endurance grids, the latter being set up in collaboration with Carol Spagg of Historic Motor Racing News. The two other grids consisted of Group C and an amalgamated grid of F3 Classic and Formula Renault Classic.

The renovated and now ultra modern Paul Ricard race track,  well-known by both drivers and gentlemen drivers, and recently adapted to welcome the public in the very best conditions, proved to be the perfect launching pad for the first of the Dix Mille Tours meetings, which from 2011 onwards, will be exported into other European countries in order to meet its audience.
