Desert Proving Ground Yuma

WikiMiniAtlas
3255′11″N 11419′24″W / 32.919818N 114.323366W / 32.919818; -114.323366

Desert Proving Ground Yuma is a facility co-built and leased by General Motors located within the US Army's Yuma Proving Grounds. The site contains a inner facility sitting on 2,400 acres with a 24 acre campus containing 98,000 ft2 of building area and also has 40 miles of roadway. One of the main reason that this site was chosen was the already imposed no fly zone which helps prevent unwanted photography of pre-production prototypes undergoing testing. The facility is also used by the US Army for their own testing requirements. [1]
Other such features are:
  • 3.5 mile Circle Track (3 lanes)
  • 1.4 mile Straight Track (2-3 lanes)
