I've heard that the elevation changes seem far greater driving the course than on video... Care to comment?
Yes, it is significant. From T1 to T11...its up and down, up, down. There is a lot of subtle changes like in the esses which really make it challenging. Its not the usual camber change from the crowned surface. Some apexes seem like they are sunk in the pavement but its just a small dip.

On T1 and the back straight, my M3 felt underpowered. I've never thought this, even on the 3/4 mile front straight on Texas World Speedway...but the climb is just significant.
