Michelin and Symbio, new major MissionH24 partners alongside Total.

In 2020, MissionH24 is pursuing its deployment backed henceforth by three internationally-recognised com- panies as Total has been joined in this programme by Michelin and Symbio. MissionH24, its team H24Racing and its racing cars will fly the colours of these three players from their next outing onwards.

Through Symbio, a joint-venture created with car industry parts supplier Faurecia, Michelin is now a leading partner in the MissionH24 project. By reinforcing its involvement, the French tyre manufacturer is joining Total, the programme’s reference partner since last season.

MissionH24’s aim is to accelerate zero-emission mobility through motor racing. A project which was launched by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, the organiser of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and GreenGT, a trail-blazing company in high-powered electric-hydrogen mobility. MissionH24 was founded in 2018 when the LMPH2G electric-hydrogen prototype designed by GreenGT, already with technical backing from Michelin and Symbio, ran in public for the first time.

The programme is preparing the ground for the arrival of electric-hydrogen prototypes at the start of the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans in their own dedicated category. MissionH24 is aiming for zero-emission racing and decarbonised mobility.

Total, Michelin and Symbio’s all-out involvement in MissionH24 marks the new dimension of this ecotechnical programme which, this season as in 2019, will see the LMPH2G and the new prototype destined to replace it carrying out a succession of development and performance tests as well taking part in race weekends.
