The Le Mans 2016 Sunny weather thread

Let's talk weather but respect the rules in here, the R... word is not permitted. If you still want to use it describe it different.
For now it looks like it is going to be a warm one so we only need an umbrella to keep the sun away.

Pilgrimage should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A little warm liquid snow always livens up the race if things are settling down into a pattern, although I would like a straight fight this year.

It's always a risk starting this thread each year! I will be moderating it with an iron fist - I won't tolerate any unnecessary pessimism here!

Pascal,

I have some dehydrated dihydrogen monoxide, which is much safer. I could let you have some if you want it/

There haven't been enough mentions of:-

Sun

Roasting
Hot
Warm
Sun tan lotion
Sun hat


Yet. You guys have pessimistic one-track minds. Shake yourselves up and get your optimism out of the loft from where you put it last year!

Pascal, it is only dehydrated for ease and safety when transporting it, you have to reconstitute it before use. I will see if I have room for some in the car when I pack.
