Track Testing on Farm

September 2006


12th September 2006.  We have a full set of prototype tracks at the farm now. We have put them on our "test" Land Rover and have been three times round a field so far !    Link to: Tracks 1st test video










10th September 2006. Dan Evans and Nick came over from Protection and Performance for a days testing with the tracks. The tracks performed exceptionally well over difficult terrain. Further modifications are required as part of the ongoing development. Link to: Tracks 2nd test video

Track development is ongoing. On the 2nd testing we had three punctures and so are now looking at solid wheels; finding the exact size is the key to successful operation. We are also trying to source track rubber that is capable of withstanding temperatures to -40˚C.
