Major Track 1

High Speed Oval

The high-speed main circuit, Hankook Technoring's signature course, is designed for high-speed driving tests with a maximum speed of 250km/h, and allows for slalom driving and driving in a straight lane at high speed on a 4-lane track. With a total length of 4.6km, the slope of the of the banked road* is approximately 38.87° completing the extreme test.

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

Major Track 2

VDA / Skid Pad

This track allows for speed tests up to 200km/h max to check steering stability and limited tire performance. Extensive steering stability testing and a lane change skid pad provides a more complete test.

* VDA: Vehicle Dynamics Area

Major Track 3

Dry Handling Circuit

Built to test steering stability on a dry road surface, this track features a total length of 3.4km with 16 corners. The max length of the straight section is 670km, which allows a speed test up to 190km/h max.

Major Track 4

Wet Handling Circuit

Built for a wet road surface test, this track features a total length of 1.6km and has 11 various corners and allows a driving speed of 128km/h max. With an adjusted water depth from 1mm to 10mm, close observation of the effect of tire patterns and compounds is ensured on the curved water film.

Major Track 5


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.

Major Track 6

Off Road

Performance tests in harsh environments with huge and various obstacles such as puddles, hills, and rocks fosters continuous research in the future of off-road tires.

A space for technology innovation that encompasses the Motor Culture.
