Nokian Tyre Test and Compare Event

 

 

For this small event, Nokian basically paid to use a part of the frozen lake here in Barrie as a comparison testing area for not only their tires, but the tires of competitor brands as well. One day we did braking distances, and another was basically a skid pad aka "power-circle" all on the incredibly uneven frozen lake surface.

 

For vehicles we had a Hemi-powered Durango, a Caravan, and a base model Camry. Two professional drivers drove the cars, while a film crew handled everything to do with recording the event. My co-workers and I were there to keep things working smoothly however we could.


 

           

 

 

               

 


 

 

 

Yes. What you see here is my friend and co-worker Steve being pulled over on a frozen lake, by Police on snowmobiles...in my car. Smile for the camera, guys!

 

The vids are great...

Steve later decided to start covering my car in snow, so about 30 mins later, the back of my hatchback looked like a mobile snowbank.
