With all the point and shoot corners I think I’d call it:
”Shotgun.”

Personally, Id rather see more sweepers and let the cars roll…..all these “brake waster” turns are a pain in the wallet. Why burn up tires and brakes just to go slow? Let them go I say……but, I noticed that nobody’s asking me so….

Regardless, I’m glad to see this moving forward.
I would like to try it out, maybe I’ll see some of your shining faces next year.
