VIDEO. Circuit Albi: world record double distance for ARM Engineering

The Tarn-based company made history by beating two world distance records with a zoé powered by G-H3, a second-generation green fuel.

Even if it is not aware of it yet, the ARM Engineering team has made automotive history. She has just broken two world distance records with a vehicle powered by G-H3, a second-generation green fuel.
The first record, that of the hydrogen car, was broken at 8.25 pm on Tuesday evening and the second, the most important, that of the electric car, was broken at 9.42 am yesterday morning.

Tuesday evening the first record fell

But no matter of stopping there for the team. Under the influence of excitement, they drove on to reach 2,000 km. A symbolic figure that should not fall immediately. 400 km more than the old record.
Today in the paddock it was fun. The records were celebrated with dignity. “We’ve been through all the states: fatigue, excitement, contentment,” said Marc Lambec, the business manager.

Without incarceration, there may never have been a record. It was during this period that Marc Lambec and his team took on a new challenge: to find a greener fuel. One morning he arrives at the office and shares his idea with the team. “They answered me, it’s nonsense,” he says. Months later, however, they have just proven that this solution is feasible. The G-H3 works. In addition to the fuel cell car, we were able to test the twingo, which is equipped with an internal combustion engine that runs on this fuel. G-H3 is made from 100% renewable materials (manure, plant residues, etc.) The cost is lower, close to ethanol. Liquid, it can be dispensed at the pump like conventional gasoline. Finally, much less particulate matter and nitrogen dioxin come out of the exhaust.

The record is broken, they keep running to reach 2000 km

Records broken, the company has no intention of stopping there. “We have proven the effectiveness of our technology, now we want to take it to the next level,” explains Marc Lambec. Funds will be raised for the creation of a new company, ARM Energy. “We were waiting to beat these records to launch it,” said Tarn’s chief executive.
The company will strive to develop this technology for applications other than automotive: construction, heavy transport, etc. ARM Engineering has already been approached by several local authorities for bus and inland waterway projects, etc.
It also wants to work on producing this new biofuel by getting closer to farmers who methanate. But for that they need the chosen ones. Because they have to get exemption from the budget and finance ministers to exploit this biofuel on site. Despite the record, there are still a few brakes to overcome.
