Courage, Pescarolo, Oak & Oreca
De racers van Yves Courage waren jarenlang een vaste waarde op Le Mans. Helaas heeft hij nog steeds geen overwinning op zijn naam geschreven. Courage was jaren leverancier van de chassis voor het team van Pescarolo, maar deze bouwde daarne zijn eigen auto's. Courage is in 2008 overgenomen door Oreca en Pescarolo door Oak / Onroak.

The cars from Yves Courage have been regulars at Le Mans for many years. They have not been able to win the race yet but never stopped trying. The brands has been taken over by Oreca since 2008. Courage has been supplier of chassis to the Pescarolo team for years, but Henri started to build his own cars, which has been taken over by Oak / Onroak.
