New Neuss racetrack is built as multifunctional leisure area

  1. Interesting from an architectural perspective, but if even the Sport-Welt (Germany’s racing paper, not exactly known to be overly critical of the industry) prominently points to flaws (e.g. too little space and seats; stairs too steep) in a pretty short opening day recap the fears of several fans seem to be justified).

    Although this is a winter track, the grandstand offers very little indoor space. Since even tracks with very healthy attendance have trouble financing their racedays in Germany, this begs the question how Neuss is supposed to work [the on-track/off-track handle ratio is somewhere around 50-50 for most German tracks; and since attendance is also strongly related to attractiveness for sponsors, low attendance is something no German track can really afford].

    P.S.: I may have missed your point there, but the UK/Ire All-Weather tracks conduct floodlight meets too.
