Don't know how people were sitting on the steps in front of the Tribunes throughout Sunday. From my vantage point out of T34 it looked unbearable! Distinctly fewer people on the track after the race compared to previous years it seemed too.

I went down two hours before the end to pick up a drink and some things from the shop outside the paddock entrance and by the time I had got back up into the shade I was sweating buckets.

I've done 32 Le Mans now and that was the hottest and sunniest by far. I can't actually remember another Le Mans where there wasn't a single drop of rain for the entire time I was there. It finally disproves the complete myth that 'It always rains at Le Mans'......

2003 was hot too. I remember I was wearing bluejeans ans was searching shadow constantly.

Today till Thursday the temperatures will reach 36C around Le Mans, Tours and Blois. Hopefully we didn't have this the last week-end. I consider these high temperatures as bad weather, in the other way.

I have been enjoying this weather so much.

I do remember 2005 as a really hot edition, Last year swimmingpools were allowed on the campsites.

As we approach the summer solstice, the heat is being kept down nicely here in North GA by a certain "thing".....

Very interesting - I was wondering how this edition compared.

As others have said it was just a bit uncomfortable. Definitely glad of the grandstand ticket though - even if it got a bit uncomfortable in there too, especially at full capacity.

You had to get up fairly early in the campsites as the tents just became unbearably warm. Genuinely no idea how I didn't get burnt. But saw some real victims, even as early as Tuesday, and I wonder how they survived the week. Biggest thing was hydration and keeping that beer to water ratio stable.

What do they say about Brits always complaining about the weather...

Let's face it, it was wonderful. I'll have no truck with moaning about the heat, I've promised you a hot, dry Le Mans for as long as I can remember! We spent more time in the stands than before, as it was just too hot during the day to do the wandering around the circuit we usually do, but I drank gallons of water and even had a couple of beers (which is very unusual for me). But yes, I saw plenty of foolish casualties. It amazed me that when we travelled home on the ferry on Monday evening, there were still people soaking up the sun - you would have thought they'd have had enough of it!
