Thread: Leyland Motors Test Track

  1. #1

    Leyland Motors Test Track

    Back int day when Leyland Motors was a proper company developing and building proper vehicles, they needed somewhere to test them, so a test track appeared. The place is hidden away from the public eye, like you would expect for a test facility. However Leyland Motors is dead, killed off by accountants probably but the test track is still there. Apparently it is still used by a company called Torotrak who develop technologies for vehicles (mostly gearboxes) but im not 100%

    Anyway thanks to the youth of today it is possible to get into the grounds on foot, so thats where ive been today, the place is quite eerie, with no-one around and the place to yourself.

    So here are the results, well a few...

    Rest are here...
