Looking at it a bit more - it wouldn't surprise me if this is, in part, Moto GP related.

The non-Bugatti racing line for cars is to hug the left-hand curb as you go under the bridge, then drift quickly across to the right to set yourself up for entry to the Esses. So you'd never be over there on a hot lap. There's also no need to go that wide to over-take a slower car that I can see.

What it could do is widen out the entry for the right-hander onto the Bugatti. The picture from last year shows the potential. They've just taken the liberty of extending the tarmac down.



It will be interesting to see how it develops. But to me it doesn't seem like anything that would alter lap times or the racing. Just another small chip away at the character of the circuit.

Okay, slightly crude. What I meant is anything they change on there I won't notice.

Somehow you would have thought they'd be concentrating their efforts on adjustments necessary for the full circuit, rather than 'tinkering' for the sake of the Bugatti again. I stand to be corrected, of course.......

Okay, and I couldn't do anything, so I said that instead.

Looks like extra drainage in the tarmac on the inside of the forest esses.

Pointless doing it ready for this year's race.

HOT and DRY
We are able to remember what that is like but for those under 30 those races are probably thought of as tall tales told by those of a certain age

Hot and dry at Le Mans? Reminds me of a quote out of Lord of the Rings

Well, some further details must be given.
This afternoon, I went to the circuit to verify.
In the fact no changes on the track:

- http://ekladata.com/fi65QRoWZEVGAe4J...Yo@500x281.jpg

Pictures of the Bugatti circuit showing the new graveltrap in this curve.
This one http://ekladata.com/NwwoDAD6Oy4Nw9az...-w@500x281.jpg I think they only widen the asphalt strip. And in the same curve I think it is current maintenance : https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-9...129_143744.jpg + https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-h...129_143749.jpg
Nothing important elsewhere except on the old karting circuit where the old pits disappear one after the other : https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-G...129_150719.jpg + https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-R...129_150723.jpg

Some good views, like the huge pile of gravel in the third picture, that will slow the first car that hits it for sure
Chhers for posting them Eric
