The C41 represented a further step forward for the manufacturer Yves Courage. With improved aerodynamics compared to previous models, the car featured a 2994cc twin-turbo Porsche flat-6 engine.

Alone C41 at the start of the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans and registered as "Courage Vaillante" in honor of the famous comic, the car qualified in 5th place ahead of the three C36s. Regularly in the top ten during the opening hours of the race, the car, driven by Policand, Cottaz and Goossens, began to suffer from electronics problems which relegated it to 19th position. In the end, however, the C41 managed to make up ground, finishing the race in an unexpected 4th place.

SPARK-MODEL

In the history of static modeling, Spark has truly revolutionized the market. The brand was created by Hugues Ripert, whose father André had been one of the main contenders of the artisanal modeling scene in the 70s and 80s. After working for Vitesse, Quartzo and Ixo, Ripert jr did not choose the diecast technique but opted for resin, with production in China but development and conception strictly in the European tradition. In practice the idea was to offer special models built in small series (what were later called "resincast"). The first Sparks were released in 2000, with a quality-price ratio unapproachable for most industrial and artisanal producers. Today Spark continues to churn out dozens of new products a year, having also expanded its production to other scales, such as 1:18 but also 1:64. There are numerous numbered and limited series for the various national distributors and for private customers such as teams, sponsors, drivers and so on.
