Hyundai's only such facility in North America. It includes a 6.4 mile oval track, vehicle dynamics area, a vehicle handling course, paved hill road, and several special surface roads in addition to the office complex.

Tests to check braking, handling, and durability of production and concept vehicles will be performed at the proving grounds.

Hyundai America Technical Center completed construction of its Hyundai/Kia proving ground in California City, California in 2004. The 4,300-acre facility is located in the Mojave Desert and features a 6.4-mile oval track, a Vehicle Dynamics Area, a vehicle-handling course inside the oval track, a paved hill road, and several special surface roads. A 30,000-square-foot complex featuring offices and indoor testing areas is located on the premises as well. The facility was built at a cost of $50 million.

This is actually the Honda proving grounds in California. The Hyundai-Kia PG is to the north east of it, almost due north of California City. Coordinates for the Hyundai-Kia PG are 35.272N, 117.959W

The previous comment is not correct. I don't know what that other track is, but this is definitely the Hyundai one - see:


which is a plan of the Hyundai PG that matches this one perfectly.
