Red Bull Advanced Technologies, its research division which previously worked on the Aeroscreen introduced to IndyCar racing last year, is turning its attention to a new cutting-edge project for the Le Mans 24 Hours. The race will feature a new category for hydrogen-powered racers from 2024.

The Automobile Club de l’Ouest selected Red Bull to collaborate on the chassis concept for the cars with ORECA and hydrogen fuel tank supplier Plastic Omnium.

“Red Bull Advanced Technologies are well equipped to take on the challenge set by the ACO having access to many of the tools used to design and develop the Red Bull Racing F1 car, along with significant experience on other cutting edge vehicle programs,” said Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. “The Hydrogen class at Le Mans offers an exciting glimpse into the future of sustainable motorsport and promises both to advance the use of hydrogen in transportation, and also deliver exciting racing.”
