Exclusive Racetrack Partner

Jarno Zaffelli

DROMO Engineering Architecture and Landscape, Reggio Emilia, Italy

Jarno Zaffelli founded his engineering company Dromo in Italy in 2000. Dromo develops upgrades for many of Formula 1’s most famous circuits: Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps, Imola, Monza, Singapore, Paul Ricard, but also Zandvoort, Abu Dhabi, Portimao and Mugello, to name just a few. In collaboration with a team of the world’s best asphalt specialists, petrologists and geologists, Dromo is constantly researching new materials to improve the science behind grip, the interaction between the racing tire and the track surface. As a result, Dromo is one of the most renowned track design and engineering companies in the world of Formula 1 and MotoGp asphalt.

Since the creation of the FIA IWG (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile Industry Working Group), Dromo has been a member of this working group, providing expert advice on asphalt guidelines for motorsport tracks.

In December 2021, Jarno Zaffelli received a special award for the innovative design of Zandvoort, where Max Verstappen crossed the finish line through extreme banking that does not exist on modern Formula 1 circuits.

Jarno Zaffelli also has a great passion for mechanical watches. The challenge of applying a race track with all its characteristics to a mechanical watch, has attracted and excited him from the first second. COBLOR is looking forward to realizing the upcoming projects with Dromo as exclusive race track partner.
