THE RODIN TEST TRACK

THE ULTIMATE BENEFIT



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 track has been specifically designed to allow for Rodin’s in-house team of engineers to effectively test the innovative engineering and design projects taking place in the expansive state-of-the-art facilities, which include a machinery collection rivalling even the most dedicated and established of global automotive manufacturers.

 

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, as picturesque as it is breathtaking. Housing some of the best manufacturing equipment seen in any automotive facility, including one of the largest 3D titanium printers in the world, Rodin is a serious player in the selective and bespoke market of elite vehicle development.

THE TEST TRACK:

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

crests and difficult cambers, providing

intimidating technical sections over

53m of elevation change. Truly an exhilerating track for both testing the limits of vehice manufacturing and honing the skills and techniques of Rodin vehicle owners who desire to take on this wild track.

 STAGE 3 - 2.438m 



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

TRACK OVERVIEW:

THE PRIVATE FORUM



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

 

The three test tracks were designed in-house by Dicker himself and incorporate world leading technologies in the material choice and application sourced throughout both New Zealand and Europe.

TRACK OVERVIEW:

MACHINERY FACILITY



Housing one of the largest collections of 3D printers in the southern-hemisphere, and more recently, the acquisition of one of the largest 3D titanium printers in the world, the Rodin facilities are leading the way in bespoke automotive manufacturing. Every part of the manufacturing and engineering facilities has been carefully designed, researched, and constructed. 2021 will see the expansion of these manufacturing capabilities with the completion of a new, large-scale facility that will be dedicated to manufacturing the Rodin purpose-built engine.
