In the development of a racing vehicle, the choice of a test track requires taking into account an increasing number of technical and practical parameters.
An expert in the production of test tracks, the Corbières Développement Compétition team keeps in mind that the success of a team rests on a compromise of always faster, crazier or more technical test tracks.
Our track is deliberately adaptable. To achieve this result, the engineers at Corbières Développement Compétition did not hesitate to rework the technical content of a concept that they have never stopped evolving to build a real range of rally raid tracks unique in Europe.
For more than 21 years, the Corbières Développement Compétition team has been organising trials for the biggest teams in the south of France, in the heart of the Corbières, at Fontjoncouse (11) in the Aude department.
Corbières Développement Compétition supports the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), the World Rally Championship (WRC) and the Dakar Rally.
Our WRC Test Track offers you several concepts of specials similar to the most popular rallies: Rally Portugal, Rally Chile, Rally Finland, Rally Mexico, Rally Argentina, Rally Australia, Rally Morocco, Rally of Sardinia, as well as 6 asphalt stages similar to the Tour de Corse rally and the Catalonia rally in Spain.
Several styles of specials are available : a choice of rolling tracks as well as very brittle tracks for development or complete set up adjustments.
The mileage of the timed sectors is at your choice and nearly 10 completely different ground rally specials are at your disposal, as well as 9 asphalt bases. It is a site specially designed for development and completely secure, hence maximum confidentiality. Reception facilities are in place to receive your team as well as a new garage to keep the mechanics warm. We still have several hectares of virgin land as well as all the equipment (bulldozer, crusher, steamroller, etc.) necessary to create tracks or improvements of your choice.
A medical service (emergency nurse) can be made available on site to support your testing sessions in complete safety
We can provide you with complete packages with meals on the slopes and overnight stays in hotels with full board in private rooms in a fully privatized site for your teams, as well as breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the slopes and open bar
A track built by pilots for pilots. On a clay-limestone ground, there is a long straight line of 1,900 meters bumpy allowing to work on the behavior of vehicles at high speed. Still on the same loop, several workshops are available :

The drivers' opinion: "This circuit allows you to push your vehicle to its last entrenchments"
It is with the advice of the best Rally Raid drivers like Jan de Rooy, Cyril Despres or even Jean-Louis Schlesser that this development track was built. The entire Corbières Développement Compétition team, armed with the very best in public works machinery, has carried out this test circuit by rigorously taking into account the needs of the best drivers in the car, motorcycle and truck categories. After numerous endurance tests, the engineers gave a multiplier of 6, that is to say that one kilometer of test on this track is equivalent to covering 6 kilometers on the tracks of the Rally Raid!
