In Yakutsk, the test of winter tires has completed on the basis of the test site of North-Eastern Federal University - a resident of “Industrial Park Kangalassy”, which was carried out under a contract with the manufacturer - the Japanese corporation “Bridgestone”, according to the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and Arctic.

During the week, eight sets of tires were tested in -40C. This year, the research program included 14 types of tests, for which four tracks were built: straight accelerating and curved snow, as well as straight and curved ice. The tests were carried out on two cars with a special system for fixing indicators. Sensors recorded the parameters of movement, acceleration, braking and others. All technical work was carried out in the buildings of the test site, which were built by the resident in 2019.
