MissionH24 and Alpine Alpenglow both to run hydrogen cars at WEC Spa race

At round three of the FIA WEC - the TotalEnergies 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps - the H24, an electric hydrogen racing prototype from MissionH24 and the new Alpine Alpenglow hydrogen car will both take to the track.

With the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, MissionH24 has always maintained a special relationship and 2024 will prove it again.

At the 2023 FIA WEC round in Belgium, the LMPH2G performed a demonstration lap for spectators who came to see the race with a crew symbolic of the link between MissionH24 and the legendary Belgian track: Pierre Fillon, president of the ACO, at the wheel, and Amaury Bertholomé, general director of the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, as passenger.
A new milestone will be marked on 11 May 2024. Minutes before the start of the TotalEnergies 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, the H24 will complete several laps of the legendary Belgian circuit. It will also be in the company of another hydrogen vehicle - Alpine's Alpenglow, equipped with a combustion engine while the H24 uses a fuel cell, supplied by Symbio.

The Alpenglow concept car was revealed at the end of 2022 at the Paris Motor Show and WEC's Spa race will mark the first time that the car has taken to the track.

This demonstration of two hydrogen vehicles deploying two different technologies illustrates the specificity of endurance. Its sporting regulations welcome and encourage the variety of solutions, particularly for the energy transition. The TotalEnergies mobile H2 station will be deployed to refuel these two pioneering machines.

Throughout the event, spectators will be able to deepen their knowledge and maintain their interest in hydrogen by visiting the Hydrogen Village, dedicated to the zero-emission competition, installed in the heart of the fan zone.

Tickets for TotalEnergies 6 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps (9-11 May) are available HERE.
