24h of Le Mans pre-test session

A change of scenery this week, let’s head to the Bugatti circuit in Le Mans to follow the TMC35 team’s pre-test on track. After having gone around the garage to greet the team, we quickly feel the excitement of the mechanics who are working together on the bike settings. Then it’s time for the riders to take turns testing the bike and giving feedback on the ride. The atmosphere is relaxed in the garage but remains serious, we are still preparing for a mythical race that is coming soon. 

Once out of the garage, I walk along the service roads to do my scouting for the big day but also to take pictures of the drivers. And they certainly don’t stop to pose, you have to anticipate, follow the movement and capture the moment !

The pre-tests go well, except for the weather conditions which spoil the morning of the second day. But no crashes were to be deplored for the team and all the necessary feedback and adjustments could be made on the bike. 

If you want to follow or support the TMC35 team, it’s this way !
