I used google translator and it translates into "Hope".
I've seen it used in fields/category. ie CAT Pro,1,2,3/Espoirs

Hopefuls. Kind of like minor leaguers, "hoping" to make the jump to the majors.
I thought it was college racers.

In Canada we use it synonymously with "Junior" I believe. It's not used widely in the U.S.?
