Trivia: coldest Le Mans ever?

Some of us probably experienced some of the hottest weather at Le Mans or know of some of them. 2000 and 2005 for example.

But what was the coldest you can remember or on record if anyone knows that one?

I know that 1968 since it took place in September that year will probably be the winner, but what was the coldest summer Le Mans?

I imagine the wet ones were pretty cold. 1995 will be up there. 2007 was pretty cold during the week. Absolutely none of my clothes dried out until I got home that year.

not sure the year but early 200's i think, we kept the BBQ going with fire cones and charcoal and sat around it drinking, crawled into tent and sleeping bag fully clothed with breathe showing every time i breathed out. must have been close to freezing that night. Daytime was none to warm either but seem to remember it as being a very dry year with no rain for the whole week

It was bloody cold. Ever since then I've taken thermal long-johns, extra socks, thick jumper and I bought an insulated coat. I was delighted not to have to wear most of them this year!

I've marshalled Le Mans for over 20 years and 2011 was the coldest - we had a thermometer that showed 4 degrees that Sunday morning. It was a cheap chinese christmas cracker style thing tho. Official records for the airport show it as 6 degrees. https://www.tameteo.com/meteo_Le+Man...ual-26120.html
