Re: any (racing)tracks in Switzerland?

Short answer is no. Switzerland pretty much banned all car racing after the Le Mans crash in 1955 which killed so many spectators.

There's a bit of hill climbing, but that's it. If you want a track day you'll need to go to Germany or France.

Re: any (racing)tracks in Switzerland?

Are you talking about speeding or training?

There's no race track but at least one track for training (Lignières NE). Multiple locations for training, loock them up on the TCS site or on drivingcenter.ch (or use Google), both offer packages for training days of various types.

The racing track Ring of the Rhine in Anneau-du-Rhin (Alsace, FR) is probably the one closest to you.

Dijon is not too far away either. https://www.circuit-dijon-prenois.com/
No idea if it's any good.
