Yes that's the one. More coolness/rarity factor than anything. Used on BMW race cars back in the day.

yeah, some think its better for racing because most shifting is 2nd to 3rd and back to 2nd for most cars. This is beneficial because the dogleg puts 2nd and 3rd in line so its a straight forward back motion. In my case I find I spend more time shifting from 3rd to 4th and back to 3rd.
