Austin, TX – the US GP track has a plan

I always picture Texas as being flat and had my doubts about the creation of a Formula One track in Austin.  I was afraid that it would be a track like Bahrain where the elevation changes would be measured in inches and tumble weed might cause a caution flag.

Boy was I wrong.  The track layout has been released and it looks fantastic.  It has elevation changes of 133 feet and the turns look fantastic.  The only criticism I might have it the counter-clockwise rotation.
