Amazing isn't it ? we invent cars to enable us to stop walking so much, then what do we start doing ? jogging because we have become unfit from always being in cars.
On the roof of the Lingotto building when it was a factory was a test track : a superb piece of design, it occupied the whole roof of the workshops . Two straights of 443 metres each, joined by parabolic bends, formed a continuous track for testing cars as soon as they left the assembly lines
The photograph clearly shows this happening.
Nowadays it is used as a jogging track, and as such provides a great 1.1 Km track to pound the feet on. It is accessed via the lift that leads up to the art gallery (see seperate tip) and is open to all.
Entry is free - just head up the lift to the Art Gallery and you will find a glass door out onto the track.
You can find out more about the Lingotto complex by looking at by lingotto page : : The Former FIAT factory
