How many velodrome tracks will fit into Farnborough’s new conference centre?

Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, which is scheduled to open in 2018, has given us an Olympic flavour of just how big their new facility is going to be. If you were watching the 2016 Rio Olympics, then you’ll understand.

An info-graphic released today suggests that the new facility is equivalent in size to accommodate:

11 velodrome tracks

16 equestrian  arenas

16 Olympic-size swimming pools

48 diving pools

102 tennis courts

370 boxing rings

Quite big, then.
