Over the ring Sarthe in Le Mans fell the darkness, and therefore the temperature finally began to fall. Pilot SMP Racing Victor Shaitar after six hours of racing told that the cockpit was about 60 degrees:
“I can’t say that very tired for his first shift, but it was very, very hot. In the car it was exactly 55 degrees, and maybe even more. For a day-long marathon racers lose an average of about five kilograms, I don’t know how many will be in this time.
I think now would be easy, but the most critical watch will come somewhere at five in the morning – it then begins to affect pilot fatigue, fatigue machine, fatigue mechanics.
And even in Le Mans there is a feature in the turn of the Porsche becomes very slippery with dew, it was there from six to eight in the morning comes more accidents.”
