GreenGT pulls out of 2013 Le Mans

The GreenGT hydrogen-electric prototype entry for this year's Le Mans 24 Hours has withdrawn from the event.

The GreenGT H2 is powered by an emissions-free hydrogen fuel cell and had run on track for the first time in April, but will not follow through with its Le Mans entry . Managing director Jean-Francois Weber believes the 2013 event would come too soon for the car to be run properly.

"The GreenGT H2 is already showing great potential and has great scope for improvement," said Weber. "However, the complexity and cost of this unique model requires the use of extremely rigorous methods and very time-consuming new procedures.

"We are only at the beginning of this adventure, and it is essential for us not to cut corners and continue the development of the GreenGT H2."
