MissionH24 has launched its 2023 season

MissionH24, the collaborative program between the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and GreenGT to promote hydrogen in competition, started its 2023 season on the track of the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans. The LMPH2G, the first electric hydrogen prototype, was the official leading car and started the debates of a very animated race. The start of a promising 2023 season for MissionH24.

Final of the Le Mans Virtual Series, these 24 Hours of Le Mans 2023 have crowned this Sunday, January 15, teams and crews out of the ordinary, as gathering the best of sim racing and professional drivers. An event in esport and motorsport in which MissionH24, a competition program for sustainable mobility, participated with great interest.

Shortly before 2 pm (French time), on January 14, 2023, the LMPH2G set the pace for the 45 crews, representing 180 competitors from 41 countries, with a first line Porsche Coanda, followed by a second line Team Redline, leading this particular pack.

The 24 hours of competition were intense and lively. The LMPH2G took to the track during the neutralization phases of the race. On this occasion, the competitors as well as the television viewers were able to discover or deepen their knowledge on hydrogen competition, the strategy of the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, in collaboration with GreenGT, for the creation of a category dedicated to hydrogen prototypes by Le Mans 2025. At a time when fossil fuels must be replaced, many manufacturers are interested and working on hydrogen mobility solutions.

Through MissionH24 and its involvement in the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and GreenGT wish to share and publicize their action in favor of the energy transition, a universal theme.

The victory of the 3rd edition of the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans went to the Oreca 07 #2 of the redline team, driven by Felipe Drugovich, Felix Rosenqvist, Luke Bennett and Chris Lulham.

Next meeting of the MissionH24 program with the public? A hint: look in your rearview mirror.

MissionH24 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual

To kick off the 2023 season, MissionH24 will take part in the Virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans on January 14 and 15. The program, run in collaboration with the Automobile Club de l'Ouest and GreenGT to promote hydrogen for zero-emission racing, is aimed at all motorsport enthusiasts, whether they are driving simulators or real prototypes.

The energy transition is everyone's business. The LMPH2G, MissionH24's first electric hydrogen racing car, will be the leading car in the grand finale of the Le Mans Virtual Series. Its mission will be to set the pace at the start of this extraordinary race, which will bring together some of the biggest stars of sim racing and motorsport, including two-time F1 world champion Max Verstappen, Romain Grosjean and Gustavo Menezes. The race, which will start at 2pm (UK time), will be broadcasted all over Europe and especially on Eurosport Player. The complete program will be given soon.

Since the first edition of the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 2020, the MissionH24 program has been deploying its strategy in a very concrete way. With the LMPH2G and the H24, the latest prototype developed by the H24Racing team, hydrogen has demonstrated its potential and reliability. A world first in motorsport, the H24, which competed in the Michelin Le Mans Cup in the innovative car category, took part in the 2022 races at Imola, Le Mans and Portimao. This complex new technology made it to the finish line every time. Quite a statistic! This performance is a world first: never before has a hydrogen car taken part in a competition at this level. In Le Mans, during the 24 Hours week, it set a record in the Hunaudières: 290.8 km/h for a hydrogen vehicle, which emits no CO2 at the exhaust, only water. This pioneering project is not science fiction, it is real. Stéphane Richelmi and Norman Nato are the two reference drivers.

During the virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans 2023, MissionH24 will meet a new audience, a young generation concerned by the energy transition. An appointment not to be missed.
