Bright forecast for the 24 Heures Motos
After the cold and rain that accompanied the early April tests, the Bugatti circuit will offer the 60 teams entered for the 24 Heures Motos far more summery conditions.
The teams entered for the second round of the 2017-2018 FIM EWC 2017-2018 returned to Le Mans to find sunshine flooding the Bugatti circuit. For the first time this season, all the teams were able to fine-tune their bike settings on a dry track.
A few crashes happened during the tests, notably Christoffer Bergman riding the Moto Ain CRT Yamaha. The Swedish rider sustained a foot injury, and the very promising Superstock team’s bike was seriously damaged.
Sunshine and high temperatures are forecast for the entire week, so the 41st edition of the 24 Heures Motos will take place under blue skies, with the crucial work of fine-tuning continuing on Thursday morning during the official free practice, right ahead of the first qualifying on Thursday afternoon.
