This morning's forecast here is for a good weekend for the test day. But two weeks on, who knows?

Can I be the first to apologise, as I've just been out and bought a brand-new bottle of sunscreen to use for the week, as well as buying a new water bottle to take actual water around with me so I don't dehydrate. So when it now chucks it down for the week, you can blame me entirely.

Sorry folks frown

The predicted temps have been dropping over the last few days. By the same we reach race day, it'll be 12 degrees and raining silly

The local forecast, taken from the aerodrome behind Camping Bleu, can be found here:-

http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-france...

It is currently, at 12.20, 27C but it will usually get hotter until around 4pm. Possible storms are forecast this afternoon. If so, it's usually nearer 7pm. Rest of the week sunny and rising to 33C on Sunday. Monday, for heaven's sake is currently forecast as 36C but you'll be gone then.

Radio Le Mans are saying that with the high temperatures this weekend, the "hot race" rules might come in, where instead of drivers being limited to driving 4 hours in a 6 hour period, they are limited to 80 minutes in 3 hours. Air temperature being over 32 degrees is the trigger. That'll really mess with the carefully planned strategies!
