ASSEN – Student team Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing has participated in a fossil fuelled competition during the Gamma Racing Days on the 6th of August 2017. The students competed with a zero emission hydrogen-electric car. The team has made the first step with hydrogen into the conventional racing world.
After a difficult start, the students picked themselves and joined the Supercar Challenge competitively. “This is a unique performance, participate as world’s first in a conventional race with a hydrogen-electric car. It’s incredible that we achieved this with the team. I am still impressed”, tells team manager Mats Dirkzwager. During the practise on Friday, the team already managed to pull of a fourth position. This truly shows the potential of the car.
