El zero emission motorsport It is here to stay, badly enough for purists who love combustion engines. A sample of this is the HYRAZE League, a category that will use hydrogen as a source of energy for its vehicles with electric motors. But that's not all since This "Made in Germany" proposal will innovate with the skills system, mixing real life with virtual life.
The HYRAZE League, which will have its first tournament in 2023, has the backing of top-level German companies such as Hwa, who participates with his team in various categories and is dedicated to preparing high-performance cars; Y Schaeffler, industrial and automotive supplier. It also has endorsement of the legendary ADAC, the German Automobile Club.
Its organizers promise a ecological category in every sense. Either by the way to get hydrogen, which can be separated from water by electrolysis and through redox reactions in the fuel cell, which ensures that water and energy are the only by-products; even for the use of a braking system capable of capturing dust particles from braking to eliminate them later in an "environmentally neutral" way.
“To achieve widespread acceptance in society, motor racing must reduce its emissions, be more sustainable and more economical. We want to use our experience as vehicle and racing team developers to launch an innovative competition that meets precisely these requirements, and this will be in the HYRAZE League. ", he claimed Ulrich fritz, CEO of HWA.
“For us and our partners, it is also particularly important that there is a transfer of technology towards series production. Motorsports can once again assume a pioneering role in the development of production cars when it comes to hydrogen technology and zero emissions "added the executive.
Cars will be built with common parts and with dimensions in the aerodynamic aspect to avoid the high costs. It will be a vehicle of all-wheel drive (one motor per wheel) with a power close to the 800 CV, having a acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in less than three seconds and a maximum speed of 250 km/h.
But that is not all since the HYRAZE League will unite the real world with the virtual one, which in these times of pandemic had a lot of prominence. For this, each car will be driven by a professional driver and a simracer in a virtual environment. and both results will be valid for the final classification.
Without a doubt, a whole revolution ... What do you think?
