Formula Zero, together with top quality partners, started the race for the future by building the world's first fully-functioning hydrogen fuel cell racer; the Mark 2. The vehicle only emits water and is especially designed for racing and powerful acceleration.
The Discovery Channel made a clip about Formula Zero as part of their series FutureCar. Watch this now and see the Mark 2 in action.
The Formula Zero Championship, Student Edition is a competition in which top international universities from around the world build a hydrogen fuel cell racing kart and compete against each other since the first race in 2008.
The championship continued in 2009 with races on four European go-karting circuits. A succesful demonstration Grand Prix was held in October 2009 on a street circuit in the center of Turin, Italy.
