Le Castellet – The two days of tests for the exclusive activities of F1 Clienti and XX Programmes are over. Ten Formula 1 cars took part along with 21 cars from the XX Programmes, including the FXX K EVO, FXX K, 599XX EVO, 599XX and FXX.
Grippy surface. The Formula 1 cars took full advantage of the new Paul Ricard asphalt with its unprecedented grip. A 1995 412 T2 took to the track, the last car in the Scuderia’s top category equipped with a V12 engine. Along with it some of the most successful single-seaters in history took turns on the Côte d’Azur circuit: from the F1-2000 of the famous Alba Rossa, to the F2002, F2004, and F2007. They were joined by a F300, a 248 F1, a F2012 and a F138 of 2013.
Plenty of power The XX Programmes put five cars on track. From the FXX, the first in the series, to the FXX K EVO presented for the first time at the 2017 Mugello Finali Mondiali and in action since 2018. This car too, which unlike the 2014 FXX K is equipped with a revolutionary aerodynamic kit, took full advantage of the increased downforce to achieve superior performance on corners as well as straights, where it could already exploit the more than 1000 hp provided by the combined action of the V6 thermal engine and the Hy-Kers hybrid system derived from F1.
Now to Monza. With the Le Castellet test day the F1 Clienti and XX Programmes have also come to the end of their ‘regular season’, and are ready to make their way to Monza where a record number will be unleashed on the faster World Formula 1 circuit, from 1 to 4 November.
