Carmarthen Park is located in Carmarthen, Wales, and contains many recreational and sporting facilities including a velodrome.
The velodrome is 405.38 metres long, and is the centre piece of Carmarthen Park. Officially opened on Easter Monday in 1900, it has been in continuous use ever since, and is believed to be the oldest outdoor concrete velodrome in continuous use in the world. Here the concept of 'pacing' was first introduced, whereby each cyclist achieves higher speeds by racing in the slipstream of a motor cyclist.
