Was it ten laps for a kilometer on the Delhi track? There must have been some particular concerns on a track that small. Was there a problem getting stopped? I rode the 200 m track at Detroit recently and had problems with that. The banking was only 50 degrees? I thought tracks that small were at least 55 degrees. The track at Indianapolis in 1937 was one twelfth of a mile with 56.5 degrees on the curves and 32 degrees on the straights! Was it heated? It looks like guys were wearing short sleeves.
