Testing the CVDC's slip-control braking system on the straight line wet grip track at MIRA

The CVDC's slip-control braking system has been featured on the BBC.  Richard Westcott, the BBC's Transport Correspondent filmed the system during braking tests at the MIRA proving ground in Nuneaton on 15th May 2015.

In back-to-back tests, the stopping distance for the CVDC slip-control system was 19% less than for the conventional ABS.  This is very close to the theoretically shortest possible distance with these particular tyres.
