What if the Hyperpole, scheduled for 20 p.m. to 20:30 p.m. this Thursday, June 13, took place in rainy conditions? The risk is there according to Météo France forecasts.

According to Météo France, light rain is expected to fall on the city of Le Mans from 18:40 p.m. Wind gusts in the northeast direction are expected at 40 km/h between 18 p.m. and 20 p.m., and even 45 km/h between 20 p.m. and 21 p.m. The wind will move more in an easterly direction from 20 p.m. The expected temperatures are around 18 degrees. The weather will remain “very cloudy” until midnight.

The weather forecast from Filipe Albuquerque (United Autosports USA in LM P2) announces a shower at 20:45 p.m. The Le Mans circuit seems spared from the rain, which lurks all around!
