    2011 Dix Mille Tours Report and Gallery ...

    While fall and even winter swept over Europe this weekend, there was a small corner of France where summer resisted. The unique Paul Ricard circuit is located right in the middle of that piece of the French Cote d'Azur. Lined by blue and red stripes, the 'High Tech Test Track' was the host of the second edition of the Dix Mille Tours (Ten Thousand Laps) historic race meeting. On the busy schedule for the weekend were all of the Peter Auto championships like the Classic Endurance Racing (CER), Trofeo Nastro Rosso and Sixties' Endurance, complemented by the ever popular Group C series. The three fastest groups used the full length of the 'Mistral' straight with the quickest Group C car topping out at a staggering 330 km/h. In addition to the races, the track was also opened to a variety of clubs and the McLaren MP4-12C celebrated its dynamic debut in France during the weekend.
    Our photographers enjoyed the three extra days of summer on offer and have returned with a mouth-watering 200-shot gallery, which covers all of the weekend's action and illustrates a detailed report of the six races.

    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    How did the Montreal get all banged up?
    "Kimi, can you improve on your [race] finish?"
    "No. My Finnish is fine; I am from Finland. Do you have any water?"
