The ACO’s hydrogen-powered prototype project, MissionH24 will complete a demonstration lap in the build up to the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The all-hydrogen powered prototype, developed by the ACO and GreenGT, will take to Circuit de la Sarthe on Sat. June 15 at 2:42 p.m. local time, as part of the event’s traditional starting procedure.

According to the ACO, the demonstration lap, which will take place just minutes before the 3 p.m. race start, will be a “significant milestone” in the project’s development, which has seen the car complete laps at both Spa-Francorchamps and at the recent Le Mans Test Day.

However, this time it will be in the global spotlight, with worldwide television coverage expected.

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.
