Historic racing on the European continent is about to re-start with the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet that is scheduled for this weekend. To get you even more in the mood, we have taken a closer look at three interesting racing cars that have raced in the event in the past.
Also due to compete this weekend is this Ferrari 250 GT SWB Competizione, which was originally delivered to a German gentleman racer. It had an extensive period racing career in Germany with a class win at the 1962 Nurburgring 1000 km as the highlight. Now in British hands, chassis 1917GT became a regular in the Greatest's Trophy.
Seen at the Dix Mille Tours in 2019 was this Porsche 911 GT2 Evo 2. Now in Freisinger colours, it was originally raced as the Peter Klasen art car in the French FFSA GT Championship. After it was crashed and replaced with a new car, it was repaired and raced at Le Mans by Freisinger in 2000. Still in its Le Mans colours, chassis ZWS393002 was also campaigned at the 2018 Le Mans Classic.
Rarest of the cars featured today is undoubtedly this Olmas GLT 2000, which was a one-off. Built in Italy to compete in the 1988 Group C2 championship, it is a sophisticated machine that ultimately lacked time to get properly developed. Fortunately, the unique car has survived and starred at Dix Mille Tours last year and will be action again during the next couple of days.
