Quaker2001 Posted August 29, 2012 Report Share Posted August 29, 2012 As you can see I have superimposed the practice track from London over the football field. The north upper deck obviously could not be used as you wouldn't see the turn closest to it at all. Also, the superimposing doesn't take into account the jumping pits which are normally outside the track not inside (expect for Atlanta). And there needs to be more room for the track cameras and the photographers pits. That will easily take up another 50 feet. And if you're in the upper deck, there is no way you'd be able to see the straight aways. Thanks for that work. I was actually thinking about doing exactly what you did in Photoshop, but you beat me to it. I'm going to be one of the first people here to back Philadelphia, but the Linc is not the answer. Unlike you Crusader, I have been to the Linc. I've sat in a couple of different locations there, and USA Gold is 100% right about the sightlines that you're going to have issues in the upper deck in certain parts of the stadium, assuming reconfiguring for a track would even be possible in the first place (and you do need a lot more space than just for the track, especially for the Opening and Closing Ceremony if you want to do it right.
