H2GP SPRINT Car Kit
Unleash innovation with the fastest 1:20-scale hydrogen car in the world.
Our H2GP Sprint Car Kit includes everything students need to create their own hydrogen before using it to power their lightning-fast, 1:20 scale SPRINT car. Once your students familiarize themselves with the technology, encourage them to create and build their own car from scratch and then use the Fuel Cell and motor to power it.

Step 1: Create
Students assemble every part of the H2GP Sprint car themselves, giving them an opportunity to understand the role each component plays.
They begin by preparing things like tubing, the hydrogen tank, battery pack and the electrolyzer. Once these are in place students can create their very own hydrogen and use this to generate electricity to power the car's motor.
Finally, students assemble the chassis, connecting the wheels, tires, fuel cell, motor and hydrogen gas tank to the car. After the components are assembled, they can test their own fully constructed, unique hydrogen-powered car!
Step 2: Race
Now it’s time to race! Students will naturally want to race one another, but the innovative SPRINT Curriculum provides a structure that combines racing with further learning. H2GP SPRINT racers use real-time data to continually analyze the optimal gear ratio, weight distribution, lubrication and position of motors in a quest to create the fastest possible car.
The curriculum provides them with digital tools for plotting race times and visualizing track time, informing the additional modifications students make to their cars.
Step 3: Innovate
Now that students have all the tools to modify their hydrogen-powered car, they’re free to follow their imagination and craft the fastest car possible. This includes redesigning the car chassis with the help of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) or producing their own unique car body.
Using the knowledge and skills they gained from the earlier part of the curriculum, students now become the designers, manufacturers, and producers of their own unique hydrogen vehicles.

Our one-of-a-kind SPRINT Car Kits are complemented by an innovative curriculum delivering an understanding of not only hydrogen fundamentals and fuel cell electrical systems, but also the basic laws of physics, collecting experimental data and discovering core scientific principles.
After students build their very own hydrogen car, the curriculum offers them an extended course to test their prototype, investigate different solutions and measure the impact of these solutions using real-time data. After they refine their design, students are able to continually innovate, updating their car design to get the best possible track times against their peers.

The crucial element is the fuel cell. After every use, store the fuel cell in the original aluminum labeled bag. If your car is already assembled, make sure to use the big plastic zip-bag to store it.
Yes, you are free to experiment with unlimited variations.
No, the hydrogen fuel cell works only with hydrogen and air. Do not use any other fuel when powering your Sprint Car.
We provide a standard warranty that covers any non-functional items that have no signs of mechanical damage.
