And Now For Something Completely Different (From Baltimore)


That is, Bilster Berg.  Road racing as it should be.  Derek Bell's comment about  it being like Brands Hatch seems spot-on: with the elevation and camber changes at both courses, car placement, steering input, and power application must be near-perfect.  The Chicane Blog scores another great post and video link:

Bilster Berg's website says it is 2.6 miles around--about the "standard length" for a purpose-built road course.
But as the video shows, it is a busy 2.6 miles with constant elevation changes and off-camber bends.
