A prototype powered by a hydrogen fuel cell will take the place of the Delta Wing as the experimental car on the grid in next year’s Le Mans 24 Hours.
The GreenGT H2, developed by a Franco-Swiss group, uses a hydrogen fuel cell to produce electricity to drive two 200kW electric motors that produce the equivalent of 540bhp.
The group is billing the car, which will not be eligible for the general classiication, as the irst carbon-neutral, zero-emissions racer.
The only entry for the experimental ‘Garage 56’ slot, the car has been developed in conjunction with Welter Racing, which ran prototypes at Le Mans in the 1990s and 2000s. It tips the scales at 1240kg, more than 300kg above the LMP minimum.
The car is due to hit the track in July and will be demonstrated at Silverstone’s FIA World Endurance Championship round in August. GreenGT plans to enter the Spa 6 Hours next May as a trial race.
