World class velodrome designer Dale Hughes and world class velodrome builder Walter von Luetcken will combine their expertise in a joint venture to design and build the highest quality velodromes on the planet. The newly formed WorldRecord Tracks, Inc. with offices in the Germany and the U.S. will “offer the most advanced design process with the most experienced craftsmen in the world,” said Hughes. Said von Luetcken, “This venture will produce the finest and fastest tracks anywhere, period.”

Both Hughes and von Luetcken bring an impressive resume of completed projects to the partnership. Hughes and his U.S.-based company V-WorldWide earned international status with the design/build of the 1996 Olympic Velodrome and the 2002 & 2006 Asian Games Velodromes in Korea and Qatar. All new Olympic and Asian Games records were set on these velodromes. V-WorldWide is currently completing the Disabled Sports Velodrome in Beijing, China.

Von Luetcken owns Velo Track, Europe‚s premier builder of tracks used for the Union International Velodrome association‚s popular Pro 6 Day Race Circuit. Velo Track constructed the tracks for the famous Munich 6 and the Milan 6. Most recently Von Luetcken completed the resurfacing of the indoor velodrome in Manchester, England where the British Pursuit Team set a New World Record during the 2008 UCI World Track Championships

WorldRecord Tracks, Inc. will capitalize on each company‚s past experience and success in design and construction. “The goal is to produce the fastest, safest, and most cost effective velodromes in the world,” said von Luetcken. Added Hughes “Individually, we have both built world record breaking bike tracks, together the results will be phenomenal.”

Walter Von Luetcken is the established provider of traditional strip wood surface tracks and panel tracks in Europe, while Dale Hughes revolutionized the business with his CAD design models and introduction of wood/resin surface panels with steel undercarriages.

WorldRecord Tracks, Inc. will offer several kinds of surfaces, undercarriages and geometry in a variety of sizes 333m, 250m, 200m, 166m – custom built or kit form – permanent, portable or demountable velodromes. Proven designer and highly skilled craftsman lead to world records.

Von Luetcken will head up the German office with emphasis on the European markets and Hughes will head up the U.S. office with emphasis on the American markets. Jointly they will develop projects around the globe.
