Default Largest On-road track in the world?

Hi,

Was wondering which outdoor track that is the largest in the World?

Largest facility?

Is it this track or someone else? 550 meters.

No idea but on another note, I prefer shorter tracks for nitro. To me, Toledo is ideal. Anything longer is hard on motors. Give me a shorter track like Fort Meyers, Nuggets or that track in Nebraska any day. For electric, it's not such an issue but I still prefer a bit smaller. Really gives the sense of speed and being on the ragged edge.

Forget the track (which *is* gorgeous,) suddenly the backdrop/view at any track I've ever gone to seems inadequate.

Wow, If a track like that was near me, they'd have to commit me to rc rehab!

The track i linked too is close to my home, 15 minute drive too be exact.
I heard that lostallo is shorter than the Swedish track by 100meter or so.
Our facility was build 2014 and the town of Eskilstuna went all in for this build at a local motor sport arena. In Sweden we dont run theese kinds of tracks private, actually there's aint many private tracks around. So the club is actually renting this facility from to the town and is financed by the members and races.

Okey, Lostallo is not 700 to 800meters, it's actually 430meters which aint short but the new Swedish track is 550meter so there is a difference so is it the largest track in the world? I sure think so!
