Bridgestone Training Days 2018

Roadshow across Germany and Austria

May 02, 2018 – Under the auspices of Bridgestone Training Days 2018, the world market leader in the tyre and rubber industry presented its new touring tyre Turanza T005. Together with Bridgestone, we toured with the project through Germany and Austria for a whole month, giving theoretical and practical training to participating dealers and telling them about the new tyre. There were three stops in all, at various driving safety and technology centres. Those attending the event had the opportunity of familiarising themselves with the Bridgestone Turanza T005 in theory and practice, and could test it comprehensively.

The workshops gave an impressive demonstration of the way in which the Bridgestone tyres prove their worth even on unusual terrain. The new Turanza T005 summer tyres were presented and put to the test directly on a wet and winding track. In addition a ‘bend grip test’ took place, along with a headlong obstacle race which included some staged heart-stopping moments.

Besides that, the participants learned that the DriveGuard tyre can still be driven safely and easily after total loss of pressure from a damaged tyre.

There were three stops in all, at various driving safety and technology centres. Those attending the event had the opportunity of familiarising themselves with the Bridgestone Turanza T005 in theory and practice, and could test it comprehensively. Participants were given the opportunity of damaging the tyres themselves, with hammer and nails. The theoretical training not only included important information about Bridgestone products, it also involved a lecture by the road accident research department of the Technical University of Dresden. By the end no stone had been left unturned, so sales staff will in future have a secure basis of refreshed or recently acquired knowledge to pass on to their customers.
