Stade Francis-Rongiéras – Périgueux, France

Stade Francis-RongiérasI have a few more tracks to go in this France track series.  The next one is found at Stade Francis-Rongiéras.  This stadium opened in 1976 and improvements were last made in 2010.  The track has six full lanes, with two more added to the main straightaway.  The water barrier in the north end is a little off-center, so its approach is at an angle inside the curve rather than straight across.   All field events except the hammer and discus are also on the inside of the track.  The cage for the throws is outside the stadium to the northwest.
