Rodin Cars has upgraded its racetracks with resurfacing work and a challenging corner similar to Suzuka’s 130R.

The new left turn is followed by a wide-opening radius right-hander offering a different entry angle to the corner leading onto the main straight.

The test facility is divided into three stages, with stage 1 featuring a skid-pad to fine-tune the handling balance.

Stage 2 is a 2,350m 12-turn circuit with dips, blind crests and varying cambers, which has been widened by 10m.

Stage 3 is a 2,438m circuit with seven turns and a 900m straight, on which the Rodin FZED can hit speeds of 300km/h.

David Dicker, founder of Rodin Cars, said, “I created something I would really enjoy driving on myself. It’s exciting, challenging and exhilarating. I laid out what I thought would be testing for both the car and driver.”

The lower part of the track has been widened and the entire length of both tracks have been resurfaced by JCL Asphalt, Cirtex Industries and BG Cooke Construction.

A combination of HaTelit C and HaTelit XP and a 40mm AC10 asphalt overlay was used, with materials being specially imported from Germany.

Commenting on the new corner, Dicker said, “It’s a challenging corner for both the car and the driver and will certainly add to the stunning experience of driving a Rodin vehicle. I’m pretty happy with the track and the customer experience center now. We have big plans to continually develop this facility further.”
