World’s first hydrogen race-car beats electric lap record

Students of the University of Technology Delft have broken the electric lap record on the Circuit of Zandvoort  (Netherlands) with the Forze VI which runs on hydrogen. The previous record was set by a Tesla Roadster three years ago. The student team has unofficially beaten the previous record by 5.5 seconds which shows the potential of hydrogen-electric technology. The Forze VI is using BRUSA‘s DC/DC converter BDC546, which was handling everything very well.

Forze is the high-tech race team of the University of Technology Delft which tries to innovate hydrogen fuel cell technology. By racing this technology the student team tries to educate the general public about the possibilities of hydrogen.
