Forze is a sustainable racing team that is based in Delft, the Netherlands. In 2008, the team raced its first vehicle – a go-kart-looking hydrogen-powered vehicle called the Forze I. Completely developed by students of the Delft University of Technology, the Forze I competed in a zero emission competition in which it placed first out of all the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
With major developments and upgrades to more advanced racing championships, Forze is now working on the Forze IX, which will be competing in the GT class of the Supercar Challenge in 2021. As its predecessors, the Forze IX will be powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. Now, Forze will be competing against the likes of Porsches and Lamborghinis, which will give the team a real chance to prove its abilities and the abilities of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles. The specifications of the car are given below:
Auto Trendy’s take:
It was not long ago that Toyota used hydrogen to power its car during a 24 hour endurance race. Forze has been working on proving the advanced capabilities of hydrogen as a power source for over a decade. Since 2008, the team has been able to consistently prove the possibility of competing while only using sustainable power sources. Now, Forze has the chance to compete at one of the top levels and show that what may start as a student team can end up positively changing people’s mindsets towards sustainable vehicle propulsion means.
