Husqvarna PG 820 RC giving Formula 1 a faceliftPublished 28/12, 2016 at 15:59
At the end of July 5.000m2 of a thick lacquer layer was removed from the Hockenheimring Formula 1 circuit in Germany. The Hockenheimring maintenance team needed to remove old advertising spaces from the ground at the Formula One circuit in Baden-Württemburg, Germany.
The difficult part was removing the thick lacquer layer that was piled over decades without damaging the pavement. The Hockenheimring team had been looking for a fast and effective solution for a long time, and decided to invest in a Husqvarna PG 820 RC floor grinder.
The team needed to finish the work in time for the big annual Formula One German Grand Prix. The German Husqvarna surface preparation specialist, Karl-Heinz Butz, trained the Hockenheimring team to operate the machine.
The job was completed in time and to the customer’s satisfaction. They will continue to use their PG 820 RC on the same areas to remove and replace different promotions painted on the ground. They will also use the machine for preparing the tracks. That way they can adjust the track to fit different needs and create the suitable conditions for dragster racing as well as Formula 1.
