A hydrogen category in Le Mans in 2028 and with liquid hydrogen

While MissionH24 continues its development with the H24 EVO, featuring a fuel cell and gaseous storage, the agenda is set to change slightly for the future hydrogen category at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. On the morning of June 14, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest announced that the introduction of this new category, which also opts for hydrogen stored in liquid form, has been postponed until 2028.

The choice was a logical one, given the direction taken by certain players (such as Alpine, Ligier, GCK) and above all the position of the Fédération Internationale du Sport Automobile (French for International Automobile Federation, FIA).

In another new development, hydrogen will be part of a world championship that will also include the United States.
