Racing on hydrogen by Forze

Student team Forze was called to life in 2007 to bring a positive contribution to the sustainability of the mobility industry. With over 60 passionate and talented students from Delft University of Technology, Forze built the world’s first hydrogen electric race car. The goal of the team is to promote the use of hydrogen technology in motorsports. Over the course of the fifteen years of Forze’s existence, nine race cars have been built, each one quicker than the last.
