Sometime in the future, there will be a place in the world for a hydrogen-powered race car. You can even argue that such a time is upon us. But even that is probably getting a little ahead of us.
Then, there’s Radical Sports cars. which is known more for its raunchy band of sports racers. But hydrogen race cars? Not so much. (Or at least, not until now.)
This is a Radical RXC, except that it isn’t just that. It’s actually a hydrogen-powered RXC. It still sounds a little too foreign for some people, but the truth is that hydrogen does have a future in the auto industry as an alternative energy source.
But Radical isn’t settling for that. It has a much bigger goal; one of which is to create a one-make racing series that will exclusively feature hydrogen- powered race cars.
Together with Cranfield University’s Advanced Motorsport Engineering postgraduate program, Radical set out to determine the viability of a low-cost, hydrogen-fueled racing prototype while using the RXC as its own guinea pig.
