Haven't been to many tracks around the world. After watching a handful of short vids about the track, it looks like there's little to know "excess" off the shoulders of the track. A dozen feet if you're lucky, and many chicanes and transitions simply have none (outside the painted line). Nasty, if you lose it at that spot. Have done Laguna Seca (in Calif.) at speed, for example. In many spots it feels somewhat similar to what Bathurst looks like ... but Bathurst appears to have much more of it. Tighter chicanes (at Bathurst), many more rather blind corners, sections falling away or off-camber to challenge the driver at a spot. The "corkscrew" at Laguna Seca is all well and good, nasty if you come in far too hot, but Bathurst's falling corkscrew section looks 3x as long. I wouldn't want to get off-line at Bathurst, from what I've seen. Have you done any driving on the Bathurst track, @hairbear1 ?
