Lucerne Track – Lucerne, Switzerland

LucerneThe second track in Lucerne that was close to the challenges on The Amazing Race last week is today’s featured facility.  I’m posting this one for a couple of reasons.  One, being it’s location.  It is found across the bay of Lake of Lucerne, from Schweizerhof Hotel, and is right next to a large marina.  It is also across the bay from the Swiss Museum of Transport, where the teams raced to next.  The second reason is that it is kind of unique track.  It only has four lanes, but the straights on both sides are extended, and they are extended on both ends.  This results to two very long straightaways.  I haven’t seen a track quite like this one before.  It looks like most field events are on the inside, with the exception of the long and triple jumps.
