Well, yes, it's contrived. It's the product of a template created and refined by the one firm allowed to design Bernie's playgrounds. Unlike some others from their recent portfolio, it has the advantage of elevation change. Just like the rest, it has all the charm of a shipping yard. Perfect for F1 . . .
From the television footage it looks like a terrible place for spectating--my kind of spectating, anyway, the kind that involves a GA ticket and lots of walking. Maybe someone who was there can chime in on that.
I don't think I have a problem with the v corners--every corner has an apex, no?--but we'll have to see the bikes in action to say for sure.
