After Driving Experience Südtirol entered the market at the beginning of the year as a new event provider with a focus on driving training and tours in South Tyrol, the newcomer is now expanding its service portfolio. Driving Experience Südtirol has an exclusive infrastructure in Bolzano, which is also suitable as a central contact point for road testing. This additional offer is primarily aimed at technical departments of car manufacturers and their development partners.

The home of Driving Experience South Tyrol is the Safety Park South Tyrol, a varied driving centre located directly at the Bolzano South motorway exit and framed by the fascinating mountain ranges of South Tyrol. With its various dynamic areas, a long handling course, a test track with double straights, circular and kart track as well as a varied off-road course, the Safety Park South Tyrol is a perfect driving area in the middle of the South Tyrolean mountains. Suitable routes and pass roads for test drives are in the immediate vicinity - the first mountain adventures, such as the well-known Mendel Pass, can be reached in just 15 minutes. The Alpe di Siusi, Sella Ronda or Lake Garda are also only 60 to 90 minutes away.

Test hub as base camp

With the Safety Park Südtirol, Driving Experience Südtirol is now launching a test hub that serves as a technical retreat for road test teams. The site has, for example, an equipped vehicle workshop with a lifting platform. Four electric charging stations, one of them with 150 KW, high-speed internet and seven privacy parking spaces with direct access to the test area make the Safety Park South Tyrol a practical starting and reference point for road testing in the Dolomites. In addition, various conference and meeting rooms are available for analyses and planning, some with direct access to the driving track.

Driving Experience South Tyrol also offers various Dolomites Driving Tours in its service portfolio and therefore has the expertise to effectively support the test teams in planning the route. This is because the team of local tour guides not only knows every corner of the South Tyrolean Alps inside out, but also all the locations of the South Tyrolean charging infrastructure. In addition, Driving Experience South Tyrol has a wide network of partner hotels and can help arrange accommodation.

"With the Safety Park as a driving centre suitable as a central contact point for testing purposes, our experience in tour planning, the climatic conditions and the favourable motorway connection, we can offer an all-round carefree package for road testing teams. An additional incentive," says Dr. Michael Schilhaneck, Managing Director of Driving Experience South Tyrol, with a wink, "is certainly that our southern side of the Alps is nicer and warmer than the usual testing areas in the northern part."
