The MissionH24 project will take a significant step forward at Spa-Francorchamps next weekend, with the electric-hydrogen-powered prototype set for its first outing during an official session.

The prototype, developed in conjunction with the ACO and GreenGT, will participate in the two free practice sessions of the Michelin Le Mans Cup event in order to gain experience in a “race environment amid other competitors” according to a statement released by the ACO.

Norman Nato and Olivier Lombard will handle driving duties of the car in the sessions, which will include the world’s first mobile hydrogen refueling station.

While having made its on-track debut at Spa last year in a series of solo demo laps, the LMPH2G prototype has seen continued development over the last 12 months.

Most recently, it completed a lap of Circuit de la Sarthe in the buildup to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The ACO has continued its push towards the emerging technology, with the goal of creating a hydrogen-powered prototype class at Le Mans in 2024.
