Shortly after 18:00, the LMPH2G travelled a short distance in the heart of the city, from the Préfecture to Place de la République, scene of the scrutineering sessions.
The pre-race procedure saw all 62 three-driver crews and their cars take turns to undergo checks and greet the crowds of fans. In a few years, the hydrogen car will have moved from sideline demonstrations to the spotlight as part of the race. The MissionH24 project aims to introduce a class for hydrogen cars at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 2024.
The impressive car was greeted with enthusiasm. Olivier Lombard, the driver:“It is the first time I’ve driven a racing car in town. It was important for GreenGT to make this technology public. A few months ago, we wouldn’t have imagined bringing a hydrogen prototype into town.”
The LMPH2G will be back in action on Saturday, at 14:42, just before the start of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
