The fourth edition of the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet was held on 4, 5 and 6 October 2013 at the Paul Ricard circuit and was graced with mild weather. During the whole week-end seven classic car grids were on the track for the greatest pleasure of the 10,000 spectators present.
Group C would like to thank all of the organising team involved in The Dix Mille Tours, Peter Autos Team, FFSA and in particular, Patrick Peter for making our attendance possible. There was certainly a large spectator attendance and despite the thunder and lightning storms on Friday night it all added up to making a fantastic event.

A massive thank you to all of you who attended the Dix Mix Tours at Le Castellet and we hope you all enjoyed the experience. A point worthy of note is we had 100% of the cars that practised made the start of the race, a great comment on race preparation. Well done everyone!
We had lots of great comments from the organisers and enthusiasts over the weekend, all of whom expressed how good it was to see such a fantastic variety of Group C cars.
