HYDROTEC Installed at Blister Berg Auto Race Track

With race cars that average 137 km/hour, the Blister Berg Drive Resort and Club in Bad Driburg, Germany required a reliable drainage system around the tracks.  A properly drained, dry road surface is crucial to ensuring optimal driver safety and automobile performance.  The Blister Berg facility is used for recreational driving and racing by club members, as well as for research and development by the automotive industry.  A dry track was a high priority.

Formula 1 architect Hermann Tilke led the planning and construction of the facility, and he sought a high quality, reliable, state of the art drainage system. Several options were considered, and ultimately Tilke selected HYDROTEC Maxi F1 channels and manhole covers.

The narrow curves of the track presented an installation challenge, which HYDROTEC addressed with a thoughtful layout and mitre cuts in the channels.

The MAXI F1 was ideal for this application due to its modular design system, durable fiber reinforced concrete, and integrally cast ductile frames and ductile grates. Maxi F1 meets a load class F rating and performs well in projects requiring maximum resistance in load bearing applications.
