Six Courage Men Confirmed
Yves Courage has made it clear that the six men in his LC70 Mugens
at Le Mans are the two Brits and the Swiss (Hancock, Fisken and
Frei) in #12, and Jean-Marc Gounon joining the two Japanese (Nakano
and Kurosawa) in #13.
”For the #13 car …. we have three fast
drivers who should be able to fight in front,” says the Courage

more experience in 2005 and showed the world that even in a LMP1
he is a very talented driver. Gregor Fisken will be new to the team
but from what I saw on the tracks, he’s a driver I like very

he has driven before. Together with Alexander Frei I think we have
a perfect mix to have a trouble free race and finish in a good position.”
This is the 'Japanese' car at Spa.
