Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is an exclusive venue set in 670 acres of land in the Leicestershire countryside. As the largest privately-owned vehicle test track in the UK, we have the expertise to provide you with a truly valuable service. Over the last 30 years, we have continued to expand our services and our dedicated facilities allow for a range of testing requirements, including speed camera trials, road traffic accident reconstructions and real-world emission measurement tests. Our team of professional drivers are also on hand to deliver quality training programmes for private individuals, selective individuals or complete teams of people.

The family ownership of the site makes quick management decision possible, ensuring that we can offer a very flexible and reactive service when required. We pride ourselves on being able to accommodate some requests that maybe other sites might not be able to even consider. Therefore, even if you don’t see the obvious solution on our site, please do ask us about your own requirements and we’ll see how we can help.
