Red Bull enters WEC engineering race as designer for new Le Mans 2024 class

Red Bull Advanced Technologies is set to collaborate with French endurance racing team and constructor ORECA to design the concept Hydrogen Class chassis for Le Mans 24.

The collaborative winning bid for the construction of the new sustainable chassis concept was confirmed by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and will see the Austrian company bring its expertise in Formula 1 racing to the World Endurance Championship, or WEC, for the first time. The partners will conduct an initial detailed feasibility study alongside Plastic Omnium, an exclusive supplier of the hydrogen fuel tanks for the prototypes. Christian Horner, Red Bull Advanced Technologies CEO, said the company was well-equipped to take on the challenge of building a hydrogen-powered sustainable race car for the championship. “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,” he said.
