Galopprennbahn Bremen

Continuing my virtual journey through Germany, this is Bremen Racetrack, it is almost rectangular in shape, with very long straights (they are about 650m long), no chutes at all and an inner Steeplechase track (with some tracks crossing the infield). The track is 2010m long, runs clockwise, and measures almost 1600m from the wire at the top of the backstretch and less than 1000m when they are entering the far turn. Maybe they start 1800m races from the middle of the "turn" (it isn´t much of a turn, more like a little straight). All in all, pretty unique.
