The UTAC winter test centre is located in northern Finland, in Ivalo, and specialises in testing vehicles and tyres in winter conditions.

It has extensive snow and ice tracks, as well as the world’s first indoor winter testing facilities, allowing testing on natural snow, ice and wet and dry asphalt for twelve months of the year.

UTAC Finland prepares the snow and ice tracks to provide consistent and reproducible test results, much appreciated by tyre and light vehicle test teams. Each track is carefully constructed to simulate real driving situations, in order to accurately test and develop certain elements of any type of vehicle.
