To kick off the 2023 season, the hydrogen-powered prototype designed by the ‘Automobile Club de l’Ouest’ and GreenGT will line up at the start of the virtual Le Mans 24 Hours on 14 and 15 January.
The car will act as “leading car” in the grand finale of the Le Mans Virtual Series. Its mission will be to set the pace at the start of the extraordinary group, which brings together the biggest stars of sim racing and motor sport, including two-time F1 world champion Max Verstappen, Frenchman Romain Grosjean (ex-F1, IndyCar Series driver) and American Gustavo Menezes (winner of the 24 Hours in the LMP2 category in 2016, currently driving for Peugeot in WEC). The race, which starts at 2pm, will be broadcast throughout Europe, including on Eurosport Player.
During the 2023 virtual 24 Hours of Le Mans, MissionH24 will meet a new audience: a young generation concerned by the energy transition.
