Two  multi-functional  outdoor exhibition  platforms,  with  a  combined  area  of  35000  square metres.  The  lower  platform which serves as  a  Dynamic  Driver  Training  area, incorporates an  irrigated  skid  pan,  the surface  of  which is covered  with  a  specially  formulated,  low  friction  asphalt,  allowing ultimate  flexibility  in  mastering  the  art  of  driving or  riding  in  a  safe  and  controlled environment.

The  1.1  km Dynamic  Handling  Circuit has  been  designed  with  the flexibility to divide into two separate circuits that can be used independently, or connected together to form a longer handling circuit with a variety of corners and gradients. A portion of the circuit will be irrigated for wet condition driver training simulation, working in synergy with  the  Dynamic  Driver  Training  Area.
