Only from the air can you appreciate the sheer scale of MIRA’s 760 acre proving ground and the number of specialist test tracks available for testing vehicles. To drive around every leg of each of the 24 circuits you travel over 95km, which is why MIRA is widely regarded as the benchmark vehicle development facility worldwide. Each part of the proving ground has its own role to play. These can be broken down into nine broad areas.
This world class combination of industry-standard and unique tracks are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
The surface corrugations are ideal for testing suspensions, damping, mountings, and components.
The cross country circuit is ideal for testing all off-road vehicle types.
The handling and stability circuit is particularly appropriate for tyre and chassis development, and pushing vehicles to their handling limit.
The high speed circuit is ideal for conducting durability, emissions, braking and NVH testing.
The inner durability circuit is ideal for durability testing, brake testing, and tyre development.
The noise measurement surface is ideal for conducting noise drive by legislative testing.
The noise generating surfaces are ideal for NVH development and testing.
The pave surface is ideal for chassis, suspension, mountings and components durability testing and development.
The proving ground also has a comprehensive range of worldwide road features to test your vehicle.
The resonance road is ideal for conducting accelerated structural durability testing.
The ride and handling circuit is ideal for durability and chassis development.
The steering pad is ideal for conducting vehicle roll-over testing.
The straight-line wet grip surfaces are ideal for developing tyres, braking systems (ABS) and traction control (ASR).
The test hills are ideal for conducting handbrake and clutch abuse tests.
The twin horizontal straights are ideal for performance and coast down work. While the stone road is suitable for underbody protection.
The corrosion chamber, salt splash and mud trough allow for full vehicle accelerated corrosion testing.
The wading troughs allow for full vehicle water ingress testing, and the evaluation of brakes, components and electrical systems under extreme wet conditions.
The wet handling and cornering facility is ideal for developing, tyres, braking systems (ABS) and traction control (ASR).
