Conti to upgrade Contidrom test track

Hannover, Germany — Continental AG plans to double the scope of the wet-handling capabilities at its Contidrom tire-testing facility outside of Hannover to accommodate the heavy demand for testing of this type.

Conti did not disclose the expected investment in the expansion, which foresees duplicating the existing 1.1-mile wet-handling course at the facility, nor say when the project might be completed.

The Contidrom opened in 1967 in Wietze, Germany, about 25 miles north of the company’s headquarters in Hannover. Since then Conti has tested 1.3 million tires.
