Electric/Hydrogen Prototype LMPH2G To Open 24 Hours Of Le Mans

The new LMPH2G electric/hydrogen racing prototype will take part in the traditional starting procedure for the WEC Super Finale during the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Before the 62 cars entered in the 87th running of “the world’s greatest endurance race” begin the event, the hydrogen-powered racing prototype will complete a demonstration lap of the nearly 8.5-mile circuit in Le Mans, France.

The lap will be a world first and a significant milestone in the MissionH24 project spearheaded by the ACO and GreenGT to promote hydrogen power in motor racing.

Their aim is to achieve zero-carbon mobility, which will be witnessed by a worldwide audience gathered to watch the biggest endurance race of the year. MissionH24’s ultimate goal is to introduce a special hydrogen-powered prototype class at the 2024 Le Mans 24 Hours.
