The weather for the ITM400 in Hamilton is looking excellent – if you like a fast race that is.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says conditions look dry with mostly sunny weather but some cloud build ups.
Winds will be light due to the large high moving in – with wind speeds less than 8km/h, or walking speed.
Overnight lows will be in the upper single digits with highs around 20.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says the chance of rain is less than 5% – which may disappoint some fans who love the surprise of a wet track to make for more thrills – and of course spills.
WeatherWatch.co.nz says any potential precipitation would likely be in the form of a light drizzle shower should anticyclonic gloom come in (low cloud trapped under a large high that drifts in from the Tasman Sea). However this currently isn’t being predicted.
Last year the same poll had 69% backing Commodore and just 31% backing Ford.
Ford won last year – making two wins each for both car manufacturers over the past four years.
