Proving ground

Applus+ IDIADA currently manages two test tracks: one in Spain and one in China, both considered the most complete independent test tracks in Europe and Asia, respectively.

The design, quality and variety of the layouts, the repeatability of the tests performed, the strategy of constant improvement, maintenance and investment in the latest technologies, combine to make IDIADA's test tracks the most efficient facility.


Test track in Spain:

Opened in 1994, the Applus IDIADA test tracks are considered by many to be the best test tracks in Europe. A facility created for shared use of 370 hectares, where safety and confidentiality are the highest priority. We offer the highest level of customer support combined with first class test tracks and fully equipped confidential workshops.

The L'Albornar complex is recognised as one of the best test tracks, and is renowned for the quality of its customer service. The allocation of a dedicated customer service representative to each team ensures that test programmes run smoothly and that targets are achieved on time and within budget. Located close to the Mediterranean coast, 70km from Barcelona, the climate allows for year-round testing. Summer temperatures are ideal for testing in warm climates, and development programmes can continue regardless of the weather during the winter months, making this facility the first choice regardless of the type of testing to be carried out.

At Applus IDIADA, every measure is taken to create an ideal working environment to meet the most demanding requirements.


Test track in China:

Since 2016 Applus+ IDIADA is managing a new test track complex in China, in Zhaoyuan (Shandong province), open to all companies in the automotive sector. Applus IDIADA contributes to the design of the new test tracks, maintaining the same level of quality and following the same safety and confidentiality standards as applied in the technical centre in Spain.
