The ACO has teamed up with GreenGT to launch a new ‘Mission 24H’ initiative that will support its plans for a hydrogen racing class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Four-time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner Yannick Dalmas drove a modified LMP3 prototype dubbed the 'LMPH2G' – a hydrogen-powered vehicle - in a demonstration run during the latest round of the European Le Mans Series at Spa-Francorchamps to mark the launch.

A demonstration of a fuel stop was also conducted following the conclusion of the single-lap run.

The project aims to promote and develop hydrogen power and technology ahead of plans to introduce a hydrogen-powered class at the 2024 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans – which was announced by the ACO earlier this year.

“Hydrogen is the future because we are aiming for zero-emission mobility,” ACO president Pierre Fillon said.

“It is our role to develop high-performance, environmentally friendly technologies.”
