Nokian begins testing at Spanish test center

Nokian Tyres has announced that it has started testing at its new test center in Santa Cruz de la Zarza, Spain. The site, nicknamed the Hakka Ring, consists of 10 tracks over a 300ha area, including a 7km oval track that circles the facility and can accommodate 300km/h tests.

Nokian will use the center to speed up product development cycles and strengthen the company’s market position as a manufacturer of premium tires. The site will use an array of environmentally friendly technologies including 1,000 solar panels, water recycling and white roofs.
