Tesla has entered into negotiations with Dekra to use EuroSpeedway Lausitz as a racetrack for vehicles made at Giga Berlin.
The first Tesla cars should start rolling off Giga Berlin's assembly line by the end of 2021. This also means that the company has to organize not only production but also conditions for race tests of produced cars. According to Dekra, which operates EuroSpeedway Lausitz, the company has entered into negotiations with the manufacturer. The subject of negotiations is Tesla’s possible use of the track as a racetrack for vehicles made at Giga Berlin, RBB24 reports.
EuroSpeedway Lausitz is a race track located near Klettwitz in the state of Brandenburg in northeast Germany, near the borders of Poland and the Czech Republic, just 81 miles from Giga Berlin. It has a feature that is unique in continental Europe: a high-speed oval race track, as used in the United States by NASCAR and IndyCar. (Wikipedia)
The head of testing and events at Lausitzring Uwe Burckhardt said that Tesla is extremely important for the region, and this type of track is important for the manufacturer as well. Dekra plans to develop and improve the track, and therefore is preparing a multi-million dollar investment.
