Called to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the H24 continues its development. After successfully completing its first endurance race at Imola, the H24 hydrogen racing prototype set a speed record on the Le Mans circuit.
” It’s a very good performance. Especially since I left with tires that were starting to cool, a phenomenon accentuated by the track which was covered with a film of water because it was starting to rain. One more lap with warm tires, which are therefore more efficient, and we passed the 300 km/h mark » said Stéphane Richelmi, driver of the H24.
On the way to 2025
Result of a collaboration between GreenGT and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), the H24 is designed as a veritable rolling laboratory. Driven by two electric motors accumulating 700 kW of peak power, i.e. nearly 1,000 horsepower, the hydrogen prototype of Mission H24 carries 8.6 kilos of hydrogen ensuring an autonomy of around 40 minutes in race conditions.
In development since 2018, the vehicle should be entered in the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2025, when the legendary endurance race will allow vehicles equipped with a hydrogen system to take the starting grid.
