The biggest ever Paella was cooked in a 21m wide pan, 222 of those would lap once around the track.

If you had 2,630 Pedro de la Rosas just lying about they could lap once around the track lying head to toe.

If the track were 5cm deep in water it could fill 12,700,000 cans, enough to tower up to a height of 1463km, almost the length that the Proclaimers would walk.
