I had forgotten what a visual TV spectacle the Austin track is. The elevation changes, and the superb positioning of the cameras, give a fantastic feeling of the lean angles, acceleration, braking, and flowing through the S's. One of the very best "on-TV" watching tracks.

Mav, carrying on where he left off. Marc put in 2 long runs and was setting fast consistent times in both. He'll be there. Dovi.....he'll be there too. Jorge....getting up to speed ?
