capricorn TEST CENTRE
To us, motor sports is an affair of the heart. Just as for the whole automotive industry and its suppliers, the legendary North Loop (Nordschleife) at the Nürburgring has always played an important role for us. Theoretically, chassis and engines can be tested on modern test facilities that simulate natural conditions. However, for a general view on the performance, practical experience on a real race track is simply unbeatable.
The truth is on the track
That’s why capricorn has been using the Nürburgring – one of the world’s most ambitious race tracks – for numerous decades to gather experience in developing chassis and components. We also offer expertise including usage of the capricorn TEST CENTRE to external clients.
With our TEST CENTRE we offer our clients an efficient access to the race track. It is located within the Industrial Park Meuspath, right next to the North Loop, only a few steps away from the entry to the Nürburgring. Thanks to a special permit, even non-licensed vehicles are allowed on the Nürburgring. A privilege that truly makes a difference.
Always focused on our clients’ wishes
We are able to profit from the technical orientated base of the TEST CENTRE. But at the end of the day, it is still part of a race track – why not use it for those very special moments in life? Maybe you would like to set up a vehicle presentation within sophisticated, dynamic and technical architecture? Or how about a brand event for a very special occasion? You could also invite your guests to current events on the Nürburgring. The TEST CENTRE is the appropriate setting for all of this. Being a full service service provider, we support you in creating a truly unforgettable event.
However, there’s even more to the TEST CENTRE: For example, it can be used for adjustment, homologation and final assembly of limited edition and small series vehicles. This additional marketing potential was discovered by one of our clients who now uses the capricorn TEST CENTRE to prepare a special series of super sports cars for the European market. The good thing about it: the new owners can pick up their vehicles directly at the Nürburgring, given that once in a lifetime possibility to get to know their new cars on the legendary race track. This is where grown men become little boys again.
But the centrepiece of the TEST CENTRE is of course the workshop. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology and electronics for testing of chassis, gear and power train the offer is easily adjustable to any requirements. No matter if simple workshop rental or complete renting – nothing is left to be desired.
