The 2002 Courage C60 Evo. is little more than an update of the previous C60 chassis.  But that is over simplifying.  While beneath the skin the C60 Evo is mechanically the same as last year's chassis, Andre de Cortanze breathed a bit of fresh air on the chassis with new thinking in detail areas such as brake cooling and wing endplate interpretation.
