Assen, August 7th – After months of hard work, it finally pays off: student team Forze from Delft University of Technology presents the new hydrogen race car of the future. The Forze VII was officially unveiled on Sunday during the Gamma Racing Day.
It was a historical moment for the 65 students who have been working impossibly hard to deliver this car. Former formula 1 driver Jan Lammers was the first to take a seat in the car after the unveiling. Lammers was obviously impressed by the progress made by the students. “The complexity of the car is enormous, but we have focused on realising an incredibly advanced race car with larger endurance,” as proud team manager Rick Everaert says.
Tests are underway and the results are promising. It is extremely important that the car can cover long distances safely and meet all strict safety conditions of racing, before it can set records. Nevertheless, it will not take very long anymore before the Forze VII will prove itself on the asphalt.
