I've raced track in the UK and in the US. On each and every circuit the racers go counter clockwise (left side down track, right side up track).
But today in training we went in reverse, which was very odd in itself. But it got me wondering, does any one race the other way round? If we don't standardise on driving, why on the track?
It was pretty disturbing and made me feel like I've I've never ridden track before.
