Betting on the right horse

Royal Ascot is one of Britain's most famous horse race meetings. It dates back to 1711 and is held each year on the racecourse in Ascot, Berkshire, south of Windsor. The traditional facilities underwent extensive renovation in 2004. The main part of the work involved a new, 260 m long grandstand with a transparent glass facade as the main entrance. The roof is a geometrically complex, curved structure consisting of individual Kalzip elements and a membrane cover, which extends up to 21 m over the stands. This keeps even the most extravagant hats dry on Ladies' Day, whilst the gentlemen are free to count their winnings.
