team’s championship with the Barazi-Epsilon squad. In the American Le Mans
Series, Mazda brought a C65 to finish 3rd in the team championship.
The LMP is a class of vehicles designed for endurance racing. The cars rely on
diffusers and rear wings to achieve top corner speeds. Their aerodynamic design
and cutting edge technology makes these cars some of the most expensive in the
world, except for Formula One. It cost millions of dollars to design, develop
and manufacturer these cars.
“Courage is famous in the 24 Hours of Le Mans,” said Blom. “They have a record
number, (24) participants in the race, with 26 races finished. Out of those 26
races 15 were in the top ten. Courage had two victories in the C2 category, one
second place, one third and two fourth positions overall. Courage also runs the
FIA GT 1 Series, the LMS Series.”
Courage is also a chassis manufacturer for private teams, with famous names like
Andretti-Green and Higcroft Racing in the United States. In France it’s Noel Del
Bello and Saulner Racing.
