Apologies if this is a repost, but has anyone seen this?

Looks like a bad kit car. Much preferred the deltawing project, though having said that I'm sure I was just as sceptical about that this timme last year.

Well like it or not it is a theory that needs looking at. I think they have deliberately designed it to look 'futurey', which is patronising IMHO.

But the fuel concept needed testing certainly,

I guess if you make the hydrogen with hydro electric power and use the water that powered the turbine to turn into hydrogen, then fuel a hydrogen powered tanker to drive the hydrogen to the car, and then drive the car. You might just about have zero emissions if you ignore building the dam, truck and car....

Not so I'm afraid Rob - that came from a mistranslation of a quote from the Super GT boss

Oh thats a shame Graham!

GreenGT H2 will be at the upcoming Paris Motorshow, hopefully signs of good progress.

Hopefully the design will evolve (smaller air box).

Wished the deltawing could have another crack at the 24hrs.

I like the idea of having these new ideas in the race though. The media/public interest in the deltawing seemed massive this year.

I was gutted for them when it got taken out.

would be nice to see the deltawing given another chance, if was not their fault they were taken out this year and it looked good this year also the grid could be a little short of interesting entries

In my view the coverage that Nissan got for DeltaWing means it is WAY more likely that we'll see serious projects in Garage 56 in the future
