GPO was awarded with the Detailed Design and Construction Management for this 1.800 m long track. It was designed to reproduce all year wet conditions that a driver is facing during a rainy day. To that matter, it was necessary to use valves that controlled the flow in order to achieve a homogenous layer of water. It is also possible to simulate different water conditions. Before being used in the test track, the water is treated in an osmosis plant to remove all the elements that could settle in the pavement and change the conditions of the track.
