Set in 670 acres of Leicestershire’s countryside, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground doesn’t hold back when it comes to its testing and training facilities. The impressive 5.6km centre-point circuit features an incredible 2.4km straight, allowing vehicles to be pushed to their very limit while our karting track and off-road circuit offer the chance to test and train in a range of environments.

We have facilities suitable for the safe testing of autonomous vehicles and ADAS testing and have recently invested in state-of-the-art technology to allow for motorway simulations at various speeds and lengths.

As a former military airbase, Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is ideally located to improve security with thousands of trees surrounding the perimeter and 24/7 security patrols, ensuring your projects are kept out of the public eye.
