Winter Test Tracks for Vehicles

Test World’s shared access tracks, offering faster speeds with increased run off for safety, are based on compressed snow. They have been developed specifically with vehicle testing in mind.

Their construction method avoids the negative ‘polishing’ effect typical of lake-based test tracks. The expertly prepared snow tracks are inherently safer, do not suffer from unwanted surface depression, and have a longer operational season. Customers benefit from the availability of service buildings nearby, from a wide range of accommodation and hospitality options, and from Test World’s legendary customer service.

High speed snow circuit

10m wide and 3.1km long. It provides the opportunity to test vehicles in a safe and controlled environment, at continuous, high speeds.

Snow vehicle dynamics area

An open expanse of smooth, expertly prepared snow for testing vehicle dynamics.

Vehicle snow handling track

2.3km long. It enables Test World to offer vehicle manufacturers a wide range of procedures for testing safety equipment such as stability control systems.
