The LMPH2G racing prototype to open the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2019

7 June 2019

The LMPH2G racing prototype, the outcome of the MissionH24 partnership uniting the ACO and GreenGT, will take part in the traditional starting procedure for the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year.

Before the 62 cars entered in the 87th running of the world’s greatest endurance race are unleashed on Saturday 15 June, 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 (15:00), 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.

On Sunday the LMPH2G was able to complete two laps of the Circuit des 24 Heures in race conditions as part of a test.
