lammers is excited about the forze ‘VII’, commenting, ‘it is important that our country is aware of the alternatives of fossil fuels. naturally, this hydrogen race car will battle against fossil fueled cars: hydrogen is an alternative with unlimited possibilities, unlike the limited amount of fossil fuel. I will follow the news of forze with much interest.’

forze ‘VII’ is a complete hydrogen-fueled car. this means that hydrogen is tanked, which is an expertise of the new main sponsor pitpoint. together with oxygen from the air, this is converted into water and electricity. the cars of forze are the only race cars on earth which can be driven without any form of harmful emissions. also, refueling is equally as quick as normal fossil fuel, which is a big plus, according to team manager everaert. students of the TU delft make use of many innovative technologies like KERS (kinectic energy recovery systems) which can also be found in formula 1 cars.

‘tests are running well,’ says team manager rick everaert, ‘although it is obvious that there is still a lot of work to do before this supercar will win races,’ he continues. it is important that this car can cover long distances safely, therefore, more test time is required before the eco-friendly supercar can set new world records.
