First day : Promising results for the LC70's as the n°12 finishes first in the second practice session

The first practice sessions for the 1000km of Spa took place today under a beautiful sun in the Belgian Ardennes.

What Yves Courage was referring to after the Magny-Cours tests has been confirmed during these sessions : further development of the 2 LC-70's and testing new aero components.

Yves Courage : " We're still working to optimize the chassis/engine/tyre package very closely with our partners MUGEN and YOKOHAMA. This day was again a very good one as we won 2" between the morning and afternoon session in which we finished first. Every time we put the car on the track we discover and show the huge potential of this brand new chassis. On Saturday we will work further using our specific approach and hope we will still improve."

Courage client cars are working their way up

As well in LMP1 as in LMP2, Courage clients used the same approach as the factory.

The Swiss Spirit Courage LC70 finished 6th in the combined times and confirms their learning curve in the LMP1 class and will benefit saterday from the new parts that have been validated by the factory on.

In the LMP2 class, some of the customer teams used these sessions to have their new drivers discover the car on the magnificent Spa track.

The qualifying sessions will be held on Saturday at 14h30 (Belgian time)
