The K.I. Sawyer Air Force Base, not long ago a Cold War relic, continues to be the place to be if one is an engineer interested in learning how a car handles in winter conditions. Delphi has recently completed a one-mile test track at the base that will allow them to better perform foul-weather testing from December through March (when the article states that "finishing touches" were being applied to the track, that means that folks were waiting around fifteen minutes or so for the weather to make a typically Michigan swing from beautiful to nasty). I assure our more southerly readers that one could simply hop onto US-28 or US-41 and perform plenty of stability-control testing during the course of a "normal" drive, but there are enough yahoos doing that as it is.
