Other Info:
The track still exists and is next to the Tank Museum but is now used as a demonstration circuit for the tanks and as a result is severely rutted and so unusable for athletic purposes. The infield is grass and one DT circle is still visible. All the other field event facilities have been removed although a grassed over PV runway is detectable. The curbs of the track are still there but are only visible in parts. A ramp has been erected in the inside lanes of the home straight and a small mound placed inside what was the first bend to add spice to the demonstrations.
