CLAAS supports ACO and “24 Hours of Le Mans” with HVO-powered SCORPION telescopic loaders!

Since the beginning of 2024, CLAAS has been an official supplier of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO), which organizes the prestigious endurance race “24 Hours of Le Mans“. As part of this partnership, CLAAS provides its SCORPION telescopic loaders as recovery vehicles for car and truck races on the Le Mans racetrack.

To reduce the CO2 footprint of the race, all deployed SCORPION telescopic loaders are powered by HVO fuel, which is derived from waste products of the food industry. This is part of the efforts by the ACO and participating teams to lessen the environmental impact of the race. Dr. Martin von Hoyningen-Huene (CLAAS Executive Vice President BU Tractors & Implements / SU Engineering) states that this is also part of CLAAS’s efforts to offer alternatives to fossil fuels, aiming to develop sustainable solutions for the agricultural machinery industry.
