Heat and humidity affect your engines performance. Heat by making the air less dense and humidity by taking up the oxygens space which increases the relative altitude.
ie 35 degrees with 60% humidity and a low barometric pressure will equate to a relative altitude of 4,000 to 5,000 feet
16 degrees with 20% humidity and a high barometric pressure (1030 hpa) would equal approx sea level and if your cars tuned for it, it'll really go.
the more oxygen the more fuel you can burn = more power
There are calculators about which will give you a relative altitude if you've got the 3 parameters.

Old car = AU Futura, Galaxy blue, IRS, 16" mags, DBA Slotted rotors. Pity to see it go, very good, under- rated car, RIP
