It's a Lifestyle!
Coggan Training Levels
At 143 metres, quite possibly calshot but track banking is not listed AFAIK. There are other 142m tracks with 45 degree banking.
Forest City Velodrome in Canada is a 138m indoor track with 50 degree max banking.

The track at Calshot has 45 degree banking in the corners, but the older people on this forum might remember the old white paint/silversand coated track which had 60 degree banking in the corners... that made all the other tracks in the country a bit bland.
