Velodrome “Palma Arena”.

Palma de Mallorca, Illes Balears.

It is not only that its cost rocketed from the initially budgeted €48 million to the €110 actually spent. Due to construction defects, the track was not approved for international competition until four years after its opening. Its main use is as venue for concerts or shows. The investigation of the cost overrun has resulted in the indictment, among others, of Jaume Matas, Iñaki Urdangarín and the Infanta Cristina.
