Interesting to see that his only real cockpit display is the BIG gear selection.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

Just above the red gear number display, there appears to be a set of horizontal white sequential lights that look like some sort of Rev indicator. They comme on at high engine revs in a number of places, just before a change up, but are not always visible.

That is a really long hill climb. About the same length as Pikes Peak, it would appear. Great video, thanks.

You certainly would not want to slide the back end out on that course.

How do you learn a Hill like that ? Thats about 50% longer than the 'Ring and thats supposed to be hard to learn, this guy knows his way round.
Awesome speed on the straights behind the 360 and the sounds of the suspension crashing and gearchanges through headphones really takes you into the cabin - headphones recommended !
Thanks

Quite a long way from the 575's GT roots.
