Plantskolan proving ground

Tyre testing and events on a land-based track

Our proving ground Plantskolan in Vidsel has everything you need for a successful tyre test project or event – even for heavy vehicles. Tests can normally be performed from mid/end of November to the end of March. To guarantee an early start of the season, we produce artificial snow as base layer on the tracks. Watch our video about tyre testing at Plantskolan.

Designed for tyre tests and events

Plantskolan Proving Ground is a fenced-off area specially prepared for tyre testing and events. The workshop is equipped with two lifts, tyre fitting and balancing machine. We also provide equipment for changing TBR tyres. From the office, you have full control over weather monitors showing current outdoor temperature, wind speed and wind direction. It also shows the exact temperature of the test track surfaces.

Since all tracks at Plantskolan are land-based, it is suitable even for heavy vehicles. All tracks are located close to the workshop. For an early start of the season, we produce artificial snow as base layer on the tracks. In early 2022, we will be opening a new facility, specially designed for holding presentations and training courses, suitable for events and product unveilings. From there, all participants will have a view of the testing tracks, surrounded by a glistening, snow-covered landscape. Plantskolan is available to book per day, week or month.

 

Workshops & Tracks

The workshop at Plantskolan has one low lift and one 2-pillar lift. From the office, you have a view of the workshop and the tracks.
