Win Le Mans?

Discussion in '2002 Courage C60' started by Got Nitrous, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. It would be something if this finished first in it`s class at Le Mans that would be a great boost to this team.<!-- Signature -->

    This thing did run up to 3rd, or 2nd, last year in the rain. Yet it seems that the achilles heal of this NEW car will be reliability, because it is a new car. Plus the Peugout engine, is a bit down on bhp, compared to the other teams.
     
  3. Re: Win Le Mans?

    Both C60 times have been quite disappointing during the pre-qualification , I don't think a C60 can win Le Mans.

    And as Biturbos has said , the Peugeot-Sodemo engine lacks power .Last year it developed 550hp , so this year it'll be a surprise if they can pull out of it 600hp.

    The C60s will be outsiders , not one of the team to beat as I hoped before the pre-qualif.

    there is a new courage ct110 that will have 600+hp it is said to have made first by 8 seconds over Dauer and even the Lola cars in its class by MG i think they sould concentrate on that car insted of a "maybe"<!-- Signature -->

    Stop writing sh!t.

    The C60 is the single 2002 Courage.

    Courage cars are only the "C" Series , there's no "ct" Series , and no "ct110" or even C110.

    Last year the car was also a C60.

    i don't think that the MG/Lola EX257 is quite ready to win yet. It definitely has the pace, but i just don't think the reliability is quite where it needs to be to win the longer races. I do, however, think that it could win in the ALMS' shorter races like the National Grand Prix and the Grand Prix of Miami...As for this car (which is actually the Courage C60 Evo since the normal C60 looks nothing like this), the team said it was having problems finding a good balance with the car since it was the first time they had really given the new bodywork a good run. Plus, like some of you have said, it is definitely down on power as compared to it's competition. I would venture to say that it has the weakest engine among the LMP900s since every other engine manufacturer had at least one unit ahead of them, i think. Despite its seemingly incurrable lack of pace i do have to say that i kinda like the looks of this car. They're a little odd, but overall pleasing to me, but i can also see how someone wouldn't like it. The only thing that bewilders me as to the design of this car is the reason behind running a rear wing that is not as wide as it could be... www.mulsannescorner.com has the details on that (look in the "news" section). Sure, a wider rear wing would carry more drag, but i think the improved stability under braking and cornering would negate that.

    A winner at the le mans will be the Danish pride TOM K! he rocks the world!
     
  14. Re: Win Le Mans?

    If you were smart(which im not saying you are stupid) i would watch Caddy at LeMans! They have has 2 blown seasons so far, Now they are in the 900 class and they have stepped up, this could be their year. Also notice how many new LMP900 cars look more and more like the Audi R8's. Must be a good aero package. I would also like to wish Panoz good luck, then need a win also.Go American Teams!
     
  15. Re: Win Le Mans?

    The Cadillacs have been the slowest of the big teams during the pre-qualif , some LMP675 have been faster.
     
  16. Re: Win Le Mans?

    i really dont care for lemans... indy racing is more of my sport. love seein em alcohol burnin jets rip thru those roads.. gives me pleasure
     
  17. Re: Win Le Mans?

    OK, i wasn't spot on about Le Mans, the EX257 winning, but it was not far off at all until the reliability let it down, if the Audi R8 wasnt racing the MG would have been 1st. the Courage could have done worse and the caddillac was simply poor. bentley came 4th.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: Win Le Mans?

    this would have no chance of winning Le Mans. outclassed by the Audis and the Bentleys.
