The world’s indoor winter test track, which allows manufacturers to put vehicles through extreme winter testing all-year round, has opened in Finland.

Test World, based in the Lapland town of Ivalo, has opened the doors to its new facilities, allowing repeatable vehicle testing on snow, ice, and wet and dry asphalt, all year round in controlled conditions.

Test World’s new mile-long indoor test track allows for cars to be tested at speeds exceeding 62mph in controlled conditions, 365 days a year.

The facilities offer independent control of surface temperature and air temperature, while vehicles can be soaked to -40°C in cold boxes prior to their testing.

The track also includes areas with wet and dry braking and longitudinal aquaplaning areas.

Test World is operated by Millbrook, which also runs one of Europe’s largest vehicle-proving grounds in Bedfordshire. Janne Seurujärvi, Test World’s managing director, said the new facility adds “a whole new dimension to the testing that we are able to offer”.

Seurujärvi added car manufacturers would be able to benefit from “shorter development cycles and to launch their products to market sooner” as a result of the new centre.

Test World has its own team of drivers who put vehicles through their paces in extreme cold conditions, evaluating everything from electrics, brakes, traction control systems, powertrains and tyres.

World's deepest indoor dive pool will be as deep as 15-story building.
The world's deepest indoor pool is set to open in Poland this fall and will allow swimmers to dive 45 meters below the surface. Created as a training site for divers, the Deepspot diving pool will hold 8,000 cubic meters of water when completed -- that's 27 times more water than standard 25-meter pools. And how deep will it be? At a depth of 45m, the pool will be as deep as a 15-story building. For a more comfortable dive experience that will also allow free divers to forego wetsuits, water temperature will be warmer than standard pool temperatures.
