Catesby Projects’ attendance at Automotive Testing Expo in Stuttgart is all about interacting and connecting with the European OEMs.
The company is in the process of getting its 2.7km underground test facility, the Catesby Tunnel, approved for WLTP coastdown testing. This capability will be a game-changer for Catesby as there are very few places in the UK that offer this service. Once approval has been received, WLTP coastdown assessments will be able to be carried out 24/7 at the Catesby Tunnel thanks to its consistent conditions.
Jon Paton, group leader at Catesby Projects, added, “We’ve also purchased a new speed measurement system from Racelogic that is accurate to within 0.01km/h. More generally, we’re continuing to understand the tunnel and how to get more and more repeatable results.”
Since the Catesby Tunnel went into operation last year, sales have continued to grow and the company has had interest from industry players across the globe.
