Hankook Technoring

Innovative testing infrastructure for high technology tires

Global Main Proving Ground

Hankook Technoring is a technology-intensive space
where cutting-edge tire technologies are tested in an innovative way
as well as being the largest tire proving ground
in Asia.

Proving ground reaching new heights for
future mobility

At Hankook Technoring, a high-tech proving ground, we remain relentless in our pursuit of researching, verifying, and testing the ultimate tires for a diverse range of road surfaces and extreme environments. Please allow us to present our proving ground Hankook Technoring, which will serve to symbolize innovation in future mobility.

The birth of Asia's largest
automotive proving ground

Located in Taean, Chungcheongnam-do, Hankook Technoring is a super-sized epitome of innovation spanning over 1.26 million square meters (approx. 380,000 pyeong), the size of about 125 football fields.

Location: Yangjam-ri, Nam-myeon, Taean-gun, Chungcheongnam-do
Scale: 1,259,905㎥ (about 381,500 pyeong)

The largest research facility that incorporates Hankook Tire's technological philosophy

We drive our spurs to develop innovative technologies with 13 road test tracks covering different genres along with a 4.58 km-long high-speed oval.

• Number of cars tested simultaneously: up to 50
• Maximum speed: 250km/h
• Number of test tracks: 13

Major Track I

High Speed Oval

This track is oriented in studying tires built to withstand high speeds. The high-speed oval is designed to test vehicles at a high velocity of up to 250Km/h and it enables cars to drive straight or slalom at high speeds on 4-lane tracks. It spans the length of 4.6km and the banked road’s* impressive 38.87˚ inclination perfects the ultimate test.

* Banked road: A curved road with raised edges in the HSO to ensure a safe turn at high speed.

Major Track II

Vehicle Dynamics Area

This track is designed to test the handling stability and performance limit of tires. The skidpad is used to conduct extensive tests on handling safety and lane changes, enabling systematic and perfect tests.

* VDA: Vehicle Dynamics Area

Major Track III

Wet Handling Circuit

This track is designed to research high-performance tires built to maintain grips on a wet road. The Wet Handling Circuit tests tires at a maximum speed of 128km/h. Hydroplaning Curve allows us to adjust the water depth to observe the effect of tire patterns and compounds on the curved wet road for each and every moment. It boasts the largest scale compared to global tire manufacturers.

Major Track IV

Braking

This track is designed to test braking performance under a variety of extreme conditions, from dry to wet roads. Dry and wet roads make up 4 lanes each out of the 8 lanes in total, and the roads made of widely varying materials such as asphalt and concrete enable a complex set of tests.

Major Track V

Off Road

Our tires surmount all obstacles without a hitch. The large-scale obstacle road contains unpaved roads and a wide variety of obstacles, enabling tests under harsh environments. We are ready to travel a rugged path and our research aims to shape the future of off-road tires.

A space for technological innovation
in which even motor culture lives together

Hankook Technoring is an innovative proving ground as well as a collaborative space equipped with motorsport culture. The center offers a sensual driving experience to our customers built upon our collaboration with wide-ranging companies and organizations.

Collaboration I

Hankook Atras BX Racing Team

Hankook Technoring dashes with the Hankook Atras BX Racing Team, which has defended its title at CJ SuperRace Championship on multiple occasions. Diverse collaboration including test driving and auto repair workshops enable us to create a new culture beyond technology.

This is Hankook Technoring, Asia's largest innovation-intensive space where tire technologies are put to test under extreme conditions.
