A world premiere will take place on Saturday June 15, 2024 during the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans: the H24, MissionH24’s hydrogen racing prototype, will be on track a few hours before the start of the 92nd edition, as it has already done been able to achieve it in recent years, but in 2024 it will not be alone since several other hydrogen prototypes will accompany it for this pioneering demonstration. Proof that MissionH24, the collaborative program between the ACO and H24Project, is concretely pursuing its objectives.

 

Created in 2018, MissionH24 helps promote hydrogen in competition, with the aim of creating an H2 category at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the FIA ​​World Endurance Championship.



This demonstration run of hydrogen prototypes demonstrates the commitment of manufacturers ready to join this new category, the future of endurance after the formidable era of the current hypercar.



Between 12 p.m. and 1 p.m., on the main 24 Hours of Le Mans circuit, several hydrogen competition prototypes, using fuel cells and hydrogen combustion engines, will evolve at a sustained pace. The zero-emission competition will thus be presented to hundreds of thousands of spectators and television viewers. The centenary 24 Hours of Le Mans race has been an incredible technological laboratory since its creation in 1923. Today, it is working on the energy transition essential to the defense of the planet and is working for zero-emission mobility.



The participants in this zero CO2 emission driving will be officially revealed in the coming weeks.



See you now on June 15, 2024, shortly after 12 p.m., for this unique experience for competition and future mobility. This will be one of the first major highlights of this Le Mans weekend.
