K&N Engineering is Product Sponsor for Courage Racing Team
In LMP2, the Le Mans Prototype, Courage customer C65s claimed the Le Mans Series 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.
