A One-of-a-Kind Facility
In 2005, the Fowlerville Proving Ground introduced a new level of vehicle
performance testing to the automotive industry's suppliers and manufacturers.
Situated on 950 secluded acres near Fowlerville, Michigan, the FPG combines
leading-edge testing and analytical technologies in a pleasant, rural setting just
a short drive from Detroit. The facility boasts four test tracks, including a
4,500-foot straightaway, 48,000 square-feet of low and middle µ tiles, a
20-acre dynamic pad and a 3-mile oval track.
Inside, there are two 6,000 square-foot garages fully stocked with hand and
power tools, 2-post and 4-post automotive lifts, an alignment rack, scales, a
well-equipped machine shop, and office space.
Evaluate, Analyze and Implement
This state-of-the-art facility provides the highest quality testing surfaces to perform a multitude of vehicle performance evaluation activities. Cutting edge test instrumentation, analytical tools and comprehensive project management services exceed the stringent requirements of today's dynamic automotive industry.
Maintaining Total Security and Safety
Security and confidentiality are major factors in vehicle and system testing. Strategically located earth berms add to the aesthetic beauty of the facility while ensuring absolute privacy to all vehicles on the tracks or in testing areas.
Understanding the inherent hazards of vehicle performance testing, FPG employs a GPS-monitored Traffic Control System while the track is in use. A licensed first responder is on staff and an EMS vehicle with emergency medical and extraction equipment is on site.
