GreenGT named as powertrain supplier for Le Mans 24H Hydrogen class

GreenGT has been chosen as the sole powertrain supplier for the 2024 Le Mans 24 Hours and the upcoming Hydrogen class.

As a next phase in the Mission H24 project, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) has asserted this new partnership for the upcoming electric-hydrogen prototypes.

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, said: “The forthcoming hydrogen class is really taking shape.

“GreenGT was an obvious choice for us.”

This announcement follows the previous stage showcasing the prototype chassis designers, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Oreca.

The Mission H24 programme was launched in 2018 by GreenGT and the ACO in this pursuit of a more green and sustainable direction for future endurance prototypes.

Fillon continued: “We had already been working together for several years and the expertise we have built up thanks to the Mission H24 project will benefit the teams that enter the class.”

Christophe Ricard, President of GreenGT said: “Just over two years ago, the ACO and GreenGT launched Mission H24 with a view to introducing a hydrogen category at the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.

“Today, we are proud to be joining prominent automotive experts Oreca, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Plastic Omnium as supplier for the class.

“The challenge is great, as is our determination to meet it.”

The scheme currently has two upcoming WEC LMP2, and Formula E drivers, Norman Nato and Stoffel Vandoorne as test/development drivers.
