Despite COVID-19, Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing Presents New Forze IX Hydrogen Race Car
Originally, Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing had planned a large event for the reveal of the Forze IX on the 20th of April 2020. However, this event had to be cancelled due to the restrictions related to COVID-19.
Yet, they were determined to present their work and share it with the world. They presented short sessions of their presentation online, until the grand reveal, which was on August 12th.
According to Forze team manager Jesper Frijns, “the construction and ambition of this team are like no other. We work so intensively that it was a huge blow when we were forced to work from home.” He further stated “we want to keep growing, challenging ourselves and pushing the limits of technology. That is why we took up the challenge and Forze IX will race faster any hydrogen car before”.
The car developed by the students of TU Delft will soon be racing against Porsches, Lamborghinis and BMWs.
Most importantly, the car contributes to a future where racing can be emissions free. With this design, the team hopes to make a big leap in the world of ‘green’ racing.
