The French Guerlain Chicherit is another who accepted the challenge proposed by the rally Dakar Rally for your future: compete from 2030 with vehicles powered by low emission energies. With my mind set on 2024 showed the first sketches of its hydrogen fuel cell powered off-road buggy, the GCK e-Blast H2 2024.

GCK e-Blast H2Although 2024 seems distant, the team of the former skier, the GCK Motorsport, works hard to adapt this new technology to the Dakarian environment, with all that that means. About twenty people are dedicated to the development of the fuel cell and high pressure hydrogen tanks. If times are met, the GCK e-Blast H2 2024 may be officially unveiled during the 2022 Dakar rally.

“To contest the Dakar with a hydrogen vehicle is something very innovative. We are working on the evolution of the E-Blast with which we raced in 2021. We will carry out the necessary modifications to adapt it to the fuel cell and travel as many kilometers as possible to be ready for the Dakar 2024 ”, admitted Sebastien lesonneur, team manager of the team.

GCK e-Blast H2“These tests will allow us to know the energy that is necessary and what modifications must be made to the chassis or to the driving itself so that this car can offer results comparable to those of a vehicle with a combustion engine. The objective of the H2 project is clear: to be the first to participate in the fight for victory in the Dakar with a zero-emission vehicle ”, He added.

While waiting to have this prototype ready to race, the French team will challenge the sands of Saudi Arabia with the GCK Thunder, the prototype on which the 2024 car will be based, albeit with an engine powered by biomethane.
