Velodrome builders (list?)

I was trying to find some of the builders across the world. This is the list I've compiled so far, but I thought maybe some of you guys would know of something I had missed. Any help (names/contact info - I've got the contact info for those listed) would be greatly appreciated.
  • Schuermann Architects (GER)
  • PJ Lane Construction (IRE)
  • Hopkins Architects (UK)
  • Velotrack (GER)
  • Junek Velodromes (CAN)
  • Dale Hughes (USA)

I know Dale and Jon. He has built a fair number of velodromes round the world recently, and certainly a lot in the US. Recently there seem to be a lot of 166m tracks - those are pretty entertaining to ride.

This is a pretty interesting read if you're curious how they build concrete tracks. Anybody ridden on this since the renovation? I rode the old track once and it wasn't particularly fantastic.

I raced on a Tuesday night last summer while en route to Indy's Midwest Challenge. Since the repairs to the initial renovation were completed, the track felt smooth and well finished. It's more cigar-shaped than Indy and T-Town: longer straights and shorter turns. I felt like I had to steer a bit more than I do at the NSC, but not nearly as much as riding Kissena or Northbrook.

I like the panorama ghost rider in the middle of the turn.
