Hydrogen racer competes for the first time


The Forze VII hydrogen (H2) fuel cell racing car, developed by students of Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, competed against conventional fuelled cars for the first time during the Gamma Racing Day event at TT Circuit Assen.

Zero emission H2 race cars have been developed since 2007. This particular car, based on the LMP3 monocoque model, is the seventh generation and second full-size circuit racer to be produced.

The energy to propel the vehicle is generated by a 100kW fuel cell, powered by H2. The electric motors can generate a maximum output of 200kW, can reach top speeds of about 210 km/h and can hit 100 km/h from standstill in less than four seconds.
