World Premieres for MissionH24 and Total

INNOVATIVE CAR - 20/09/2019 - Sophie LIGER

Launched one year ago at Spa-Francorchamps, MissionH24 celebrated its first anniversary at the same circuit in Belgium this weekend. The LMPH2G, the hydrogen-electric prototype developed by H24Racing, took the track for the first time at a race meeting during free pratice for the Michelin Le Mans Cup, a support event to the European Le Mans Series 4 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps.

Stats from today's free practice sessions:
-8 laps in session 1 in the morning
-12 laps in session 2 in the afternoon
-Fastest lap time in the morning: 2'33''445
-Fastest lap time in the afternoon: 2'33''149
-4 pit stops

The objectives for this foray into competition where both simple and complex: immersion in a race environment for the team, finalisation of everyone's roles and of course technical work such as learning the overall set-up of the car, energy management and refuelling procedures with Total's teams.

Norman Nato – H24 Racing

“It was my first at Spa with H24 racing, but not my first time the wheel of the LMGH2G as I’m involved in the development of the car. It was nice to drive something different at Spa. I’ve raced a GT this year for the 24 Hours of Spa and of course the LMP2, so to finally go on track with a hydrogen car, a new technology, was really interesting. In the Raidillon, no matter the car you are driving, it’s always impressive.

“The tests went well. We know where we are, and we did not have any surprises; we followed the plan. We refuelled at the new Total station for the first time, which was the main goal of the day.”

“There is still a lot of work to do but compared to last year when the car was launched, we have improved a lot. We still need to work on the car and on the Total station, but to be here today and be part of this project is hugely satisfying. It’s really nice to start with a blank page and to see the result today, to see the car running at this level of performance knowing that we still have some great evolutions coming.”
