MissionH24 invited to the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Ten days after the end of the 24 Hours of Le Mans week MissionH24 will be back in action on the track from Thursday to Sunday, this time in Great Britain, as H24 Racing’s two electric-hydrogen-powered racing prototypes have been invited to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Stéphane Richelmi will be at the wheel of the H24 for the hill climb and Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, will drive the LMPH2G in the demonstrations organised on the same layout.

Outside motor races, the Goodwood Festival of Speed is the most prestigious of international motor sport events and it attracts some 150.000 spectators over the four days. Once a year in England in the heart of the Goodwood estate, the elite of world motor sport, all disciplines combined, meet up for four days to celebrate the men and machines which shine the rest of the year on circuits and special stages all over the planet. No world champion, no race team, no manufacturer whose DNA has been marked by motor sport would miss this rendezvous. 

As in 2021, the host, Charles Gordon Lennox, Duke of Richmond, wanted MissionH24 to be honoured alongside the greats of motor sport. All the more so as this year he has placed his event under the sign of future mobility. Invited in 2021 to put on demonstrations with one of their electric-hydrogen prototypes, the LMPH2G, this year MissionH24 and the H24Racing team have been invited with two cars. Stéphane Richelmi will have the privilege of taking part in the hill climb with the H24 entered this season in the endurance events in the Michelin Le Mans Cup, while the LMPH2G will be driven by Pierre Fillon, the president of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, organiser of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in the demonstrations put on every day on the same layout!
