High-speed crash test

At our crash facilities, vehicles of up to 2.5 t can accelerate to speeds of 200 km/h.

At our spacious crash sites, we can analyse motorway collisions, protection systems and road restraint systems using maximum dynamic performance:

  • Spectator safety fences
  • Race track barriers
  • Road restraint systems on race tracks
Motorway rear-end collision at 140 km/h with a stationary vehicle
Sports car colliding with a Formula 1 spectator safety fence at 150 km/h, a height of 2 m and an angle of 20°

We have developed specific high-speed impact configurations for spectator safety fences together with the FIA.
