The LMPH2G electric/hydrogen prototype to open Le Mans proceedings
At 14h42 on Saturday 15 June, the LMPH2G racing prototype will take part in the traditional starting procedure for the WEC Super Finale - the 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Before the 62 cars entered in the 87th running of the world’s greatest endurance race are unleashed, the hydrogen-powered racing prototype will complete a demonstration lap of the full 13.626-kilometre circuit.
Scheduled just a few minutes before the race start (15h00), this 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 determination to achieve zero-carbon mobility 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.
