Saturn Courage Is Back?
The Spanish team Saturn Motorsport team has been in possession of a Courage C60, chassis #1, for several years - this being the one used by Philippe Gache during the 2000 and 2001 24 Hours, the "Speedy" Courage, which was Judd-powered at the time.

At the start of its ownership, Saturn had it fitted with Chevy V8, but despite indications that they would race it, they never did. Jesus Diez Villaroel did some laps in the 2004 pre-season, but weeks later it was for sale. It was still available as late as last December.

The Chevrolet unit wasn’t the ideal choice for the nimble C60, so the plan is now to fit a Judd V10. Luís Llobet and Víctor Fernández Roca are competing in the Eurocup Mégane trophy and Spanish GT Championship this year, in the latter with a SEAT Toledo GT. They are currently looking very seriously at running the Courage in the LMES, but have yet to set a date for the return to the tracks of this car.
