Millbrook's tyre and vehicle winter test specialist, Test World, has opened its new indoor test facilities in Ivalo, Finland, at a launch event attended by customers, dignitaries and journalists from around the world.

Guests at the launch event were given tours of the indoor and outdoor test tracks, showcasing how the expansion allows Test World to offer the longest winter test schedule and most stable test conditions in Europe. Live demonstrations showed guests the potential applications of the indoor facilities, with selected guests given time to drive on the variety of surfaces available.
