Exclusive Racetrack Partner
DROMO Engineering Architecture and Landscape, Reggio Emilia, Italy
Jarno Zaffelli founded his engineering company, Dromo, in Italy in 2000. Dromo has developed upgrades for many of Formula 1’s most famous circuits: Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps, Imola, Monza, Singapore, Paul Ricard, as well as 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 extreme banking design of Zandvoort. Something that does not exist before on the modern Formula 1 circuits.
Jarno Zaffelli also has a great passion for mechanical watches. The challenge of applying a race track, with all of its characteristics, to a mechanical watch has attracted and excited him from the first second that he heard the idea. COBLOR is looking forward to realizing their upcoming projects with Dromo as their exclusive race track partner.
