The new Jaguar to run at Lommel

The new Jaguar R4 is to have its first shakedown runs at the Ford Motor Company's Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium later this week. This will be second year in which the team has used Lommel to do the first tests of a new car, providing the team with no interruptions and away from prying eyes. The facility, which is located close to the Belgian-Dutch border near Eindhoven, has 40 miles of different tracks which the company use to try out its products and can simulate a variety of different conditions. The 800 acre facility was recently upgraded with an investment of $12.8m to build a special vehicle dynamics area and a new high-speed handling course.
