The first day of the 2019 AfMA conference was a field day at Sandown Raceway. It was a great opportunity for Fleet Managers to drive different vehicles, learn about new technologies and be educated on the impact of weight in a vehicle.
FAN attended the day and we wish it went longer. We spent the morning driving 14 different EV and hydrogen powered vehicles around a short road course then blasted them down the main straight. After the smiles faded we headed over the ABS demonstration and the AEB experience using the inflatable ANCAP dummy vehicle. The afternoon was spent in the hands of the Pedders team as we learnt about carrying loads and the improvements that can be made with a suspension and brake upgrade.
