IDIADA continues to enhance its Proving Ground test tracks

IDIADA's Test Facility Design team has designed and implemented a significant test track maintenance plan during the 2021 autumn/winter season.

The main objectives of this work have been to maximize the safety of users, ensure that our testing surfaces remain in optimum conditions, and to provide more testing options for our customers. 

We have created an additional ISO surface (ISO10844:2021) on Dynamic Platform A to offer more capacity for pass-by noise testing. Additionally, we have worked to recondition the surfaces’ seal joints, repainted all the predefined test markings, and installed new protection barriers.

Adaptation works affecting our Dry Handling Circuit consisted of the installation of new protection barriers. New tyre walls have been constructed, together with an extension of run-off areas to improve the safety when used in a clockwise configuration.

As for the Wet Circle track and the Wet Asphalt section of the braking surfaces, they have gone through a complete resurfacing process to restore both tracks’ condition as if they were new.

Procedure change on Zone 2 Wet Braking area

Proving Ground team would like to inform you that the resurfacing work carried out on the wet braking section located at Zone 2 on the Straight Line Braking Surfaces (T07) that was planned over the winter maintenance period was carried out successfully.

Additionally, we have implemented a new operating procedure for this section and that, from Monday 31st January 2022, on the initial 125 meters of the straight will be irrigated when the user request use of the surface. the rest of this section will remain in DRY condition unless requested to Proving Ground Operations team in advance.

We remind that braking tests are not permitted on the DRY surface.
