Yes, it's that time of year folks - except this is different. Last year we were suffering a deluge until race week, and then it dried up. To put things into perspective I cut the lawn just before the Classic a couple of weeks after the race last year and didn't cut it again until this year. I haven't cut it for a fortnight as I write. The drought has been the worst I have seen, so if this continues be very careful please. it is going to get dangerous, especially if we have a recurrence of the pyromaniacs we often have. Of course, now I have committed myself to print cats and dogs will come to mind. Actually, I hope so, but only until the beginning of June for the test day.

I pack for both hot/dry and monsoon/mud bath conditions. So it's shorts, t-shirt, sun cream, wellies, thick waterproof and lots of spare clothes.

When does the tent/cat forecast happen?

I don't want to rely on anything unscientific.

Do they not do a long range forecast then?

Nah bad enough getting them to do the June forecast and they may take umbrage at doing another "weather ceremony " before June. This may influence the real forecast and give us a duff result for the main event smile

Accuweather.com has long range forecasts upto 90 days. At the moment Le Mans looks like being in the low 20s and mostly dry. Will almost certainly change though.
