Courage LC75 Latest
The Courage LMP2, the LC75, had its shakedown today – writes
Claude Foubert. The car used a Mécachrome engine.
The testing actually took place on the short Maison
Blanche circuit (1.4 km long), near the Courage Compétition
workshop. The shakedown had been scheduled for yesterday but was
delayed because of bad weather conditions.
The weather was better today, but damp in the morning.
Alexander Frei was at the wheel of the car, which ran from 11.00
to midday (on intermediates) and from 14.00 to 17.00 (on slicks).
Claude Surmont commented that the team was very pleased with the
shakedown. All the systems were working well and the LC75 ran for
400 kms trouble free. The team continues to expect a big step forward
compared to the C65.
The car should be testing next week - on a circuit
which is still not known.
