Here is Austin

I know this has been out for about a month but it's still too cool to not post about. has put up the official map of the Austin track.   The sweetness here can not be denied.  Almost three and a half miles with twenty turns, high speed straight sections, lots of overtaking possibilities and for the first time in F1, Rodeo Clowns and cattle guard crossings so they can keep the cows off the track.

OK, so there's no Rodeo Clowns or cows but still this thing looks like a really good time.

Check out this 3D render of the track complete with elevation changes.   Pay close attention to turns 16, 17, and 18.  This multi-apex corner is a tribute to the turn at Istanbul but has a spooky elevation change and for the love of all that is awesome just look at turn one.  Well, rather the ramp up to it.   Imagine 180 MPH into that corner.  The sweetness....

F1 Passions run deep and strong. Vigorous but friendly discussion is something we're shooting for.

Don't be a jerk.
