THE TEST TRACK

THE ULTIMATE



Ringed by the snow-capped peaks of New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Rodin Cars’ test facility incorporates three separate loops

of test track laid over green and

undulating valley terrain.

 

The sprawling factory complex at Wandle Downs, near Mt. Lyford in an untouched

region of New Zealand's South Island, is as accomplished as it is unexpected — an invitation to step unimpeded into the future of extreme performance, unburdened by the rules and restrictions of heavily regulated professional race series.

STAGE ONE - 200m 



The facility's smallest track is a 200m

(100ft radius) skid pad, where fine tuning is calibrated on the steady state handling characteristics of the car. This is the base of all Rodin Cars track development work.

STAGE 2 - 2,350m



By Dicker’s own admission Stage 2 is

nothing short of ‘frightening’.

 

A 2,350m, 12-turn circuit of dips,  blind

crests and difficult cambers, providing

intimidating technical sections  over

53m of elevation change.

 STAGE 3 - 2.438m 



A fast, flat and deceptively challenging 2,438m circuit of seven turns, pergect visibility and a 900m straight, on which the Rodin FZED will reach speeds in excess of 300km/h.

Rodin Car's bespoke test tracks are emblematic of David Dicker's larger business philosophy - "The pursuit of excellence requires investment" - and in the case of Rodin Cars, this investment is exemplified in hiring the best people, in procurring the latest state-of-the-art technology and constructing a facility that has everything required for developing vehicles that break through all the boundaries.

 

Rodin Car's three tracks were designed and created in-house, eschewing outside contractors to concentrate on perfecting the facilities for Rodin's unique requirements.

THE LOOKOUT



The location of the Rodin Cars New Zealand facility is nothing less than breathtaking and the Lookout is the best place to take it all in. 

 

Overlooking the facilites and track, you can plan your race path whilst enjoying the serenity and untouched views of the surrounding countryside.

Housing one of the largest collection of 3D printers in the southern-hemisphere is only one part of the fully realised manufacturing and engineering facilities carefully designed, imported, installed and managed within the purpose-designed facilities created to house, build and maintain the Rodin Cars vehicles.
