@Zot

Thanks for the link. That's very helpful. Again, I'm not sure if the cycling community (locally, regionally, nationally, internationally?) would keep the place fully booked, but if not, I'd love to think about a flexible building.

For example:

  1. Can one "invent" a seating system that slides out on steel rails over the track if you want to do concerts-in-the-round, thereby protecting the wooden surface of the track, but accommodating a lot of people?

  2. Can even a small portion of the roof open easily and cost-effectively without being an expensive dome system?

  3. If built in the WH, could the north wall slide open leaving a 75% open wall overlooking the harbour?

And other ideas?

I'm not naive enough not to realize ideas like these, even if they are possible, are pricier than fixed, single purpose everything. I'm just trying to stimulate the discussion before we have only 48 hours left to make a multi-generation financial and social decision.
