State sponsorship and aliation with North Carolina’s university and community college system oers exceptional opportunities for matching the innovative talents of the world’s automotive industry with the research capacity and business development resources of the State of North Carolina. On the 620-acre site, NCCAR is home to a two-mile bi-directional road course, a two-acre vehicle dynamics area, a seven-acre dirt facility, and 3-mile dirt trails for trucks or side by sides.
