Quantron, a European company specialising in Fuel Cell truck technology, has entered into a partnership to supply Fuel Cell trucks to the ACE Championship, a global single-seater junior electric race series.

The aim is to ensure zero-emission transportation. Starting from the 2024-25 season, the Quantron QHM FCEV AERO truck will gradually assume the role of the official zero-emission truck for the series, with an initial focus on the European region, stated a press release. 

2024 marks the beginning of the ACE Championship, a new all-electric racing series promoting young motorsport talents while simultaneously championing green solutions. Quantron AG, a specialist in sustainable passenger and freight transportation, shares this ethos, making them the ideal heavy duty truck partner to accompany the series with their zero-emission transportation solutions – starting next year, the companies stated.

The German Clean Tech company will be organising ACE Championship’s logistics with its zero-emission trucks. The hydrogen-power vehicles have all the necessary characteristics for the long distances made between the various event locations across European race tracks.

Dilbagh Gill, Founder and CEO of ACE Championship, says: “The ACE Championship is about innovation in motorsport and about opportunity. We are looking at the ACE Championship to provide representation to people who are interested in driving, as well as engineers around the world who have not had the opportunity to date and giving them a chance to level up.

“As a zero emission race series it is mandatory to also move our teams and vehicles zero emission and only the Quantron FCEV truck can deliver the speed and cycle times needed to transport all our teams and cars from racetrack to team locations in the shortest possible time”, he added

Nick Heidfeld, Co-Founder for ACE Championship commented “We want ACE Championship to be fair, affordable and to attract youngsters into the series from all regions of the world to make the step into motorsport. In ACE Championship, we are trying to create something which gives young drivers the possibility to get into the sport on good circuits and move forward in their careers”.

Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG also said “ACE Championship and QUANTRON share similar missions, aiming to empower diverse young communities while making our contribution to decarbonisation. The Europe-wide racing series is a great opportunity for us to show that our H2 powered QHM FCEV is the ideal solution to serve the teams over long distances with the fastest turnaround times. It is a kind of “Race to Road” partnership and I am happy to work with Dilbagh, Nick and Rene Wollmann again on such a challenge. A Dream Team with a strong track record in Zero Emissions.”
