Proving Ground

The proving ground in St. Valentin / Austria with its area of 40 ha has an optimal design for the testing of commercial vehicles and passenger cars. It provides a paved road with 850 m, rough roads and up to 7 km unpaved dirt road tracks with varying ascending slopes.

Our deep understanding about the definition of test collectives that reflect the required vehicle durability in real life in connection with the immediate availability of the proving ground, are the key advantages for customers during the development.

Heavy terrain, slopes with gradients up to 60%, a fording basin with a depth up to 1.8 m and special obstacles qualify this test track also for testing of off-road-, construction- or military vehicles. In addition free field- and ISO-noise measurements as well as test stands for cooling measurements are available .
