Alpine Alpenglow to hit the Spa-Francorchamps racetrack

The Alpine Alpenglow, seen on display at the Paris Motor Show in 2022 and at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2023, will hit the racetrack on May 11, ahead of the Spa-Francorchamps 6 Hour endurance race. And it will be a new version.

As mentioned in the press release, “Alpenglow embodies the brand’s design and sustainable innovation ambitions for ultra-sporty road and track cars.” While the Renault group has chosen the fuel cell for Hyvia (which is also a partner of the Alpine F1 team), and is also taking an interest in e-fuels, Alpine will be focusing its efforts on the hydrogen engine.

Compared to the statis Alpenglow on show (which was also showcased at the 2023 Brussels Motor Show), Alpine is preparing to reveal a mobile version with a hydrogen-powered internal combustion engine and an all-new design. The car will be seen in a static display on 10 May, followed by a dynamic on-track demonstration on 11 May.

The car’s technical characteristics are eagerly awaited, as is information on when Alpine is planning to take it to the championship.

In addition, the ACO has announced that the H24 will also race on the famous Belgian circuit. It will be completing a few laps at the same time as the Alpine Alpenglow. TotalEnergies’ mobile H2 station will be deployed to refuel these two pioneering vehicles.
