mini dromes

Amidst a bunch of hubbub, the Red Bull Mini Drome Championship was held in London last night.  Heralded as being the "smallest velodrome in the world", I think Red Bull should probably watch their backs and look up some history.

"Circulus" is a 132-foot circumference wooden velodrome that was a senior thesis project by a California art student.  The project was temporarily on display at a library, but has been purchased by Portland Design Works and will be moved to their HQ in Portland.

And our last contender is a photo from back in the day.
Hmm, suspicious. Seems everything old is new again.
