I did my first ever DE at Buttonwillow. I did my second ever DE using this configuration. Let's just say the short-ish course allows for accelerated learning.

It's also a bit of an equalizer in that cars with massive HP advantages has two relatively long straights to play with, while cars with weight advantage is rewarded with a very technical sector in the back. I remember driving, back to back, a Lotus Exige S and a Mercedes SL63 back to back, and was absolutely floored by the amount of fun you can have with two very distinct cars on the opposite end of the spectrum.

On the big Roval, the Exige S would be at a distinct disadvantage.
