Just some trivia since we're speaking about .ch ... it's Kampfbahn here.
Never heard the combination with "Fahrer", though. (I'm doing military
service, but not on troops where the Kampfbahn is our business)
In Afrikaans (descendant of Dutch) it is "hindernisbaan", which is
actually very similar to the german hindernisbahn. Hindernis ==
If there is one thing this longish thread did is to make me feel
better about my poor german, considering some of the english produced
by the germans. Eg: non-constitunional (should be unconstitutional).
But no-one said english was logic :-) What with unkempt (no such word
as kempt though) and disheveled (no such word as sheveled) :-)
