The H24 Racing hydrogen-powered prototype has set its first on-track miles at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
During the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day, the MissionH24 prototype took to the circuit by itself to set its first real track miles. The time slot for the car came during the lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions.
The car was allowed out onto the 13.626km track for a few minutes to complete two laps of the famous Le Mans circuit.
The lap time of the car has not been released, but these few on-track laps will give the LMPH2G car, created by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and GreenGT, engineers some invaluable real-time data to use as a foundation for the further development of the car.
The LMPGH2G aims to be the first hydrogen-electric car to compete in a 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the target being a 2024 entry, when the ACO hopes to introduce a hydrogen class to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
