The paved road course is designed with banked corners, making highway speeds achievable. Inside the road course will be an off-highway area with a variety of surfaces and grades to simulate the most demanding of work environments.
 
Rather than relying on outside resources for track design and construction, Volvo turned to a team of experienced employees skilled in design, excavation and the operation of heavy machinery. With the help of rented Volvo construction equipment, the team is tackling all aspects of the project – blueprints to bulldozing.
