Oh ok, if Sport Plus throttle is similar to Sport I guess that's not so bad. On the M3, Sport Plus is insane -- as is P500 Sport on the previous-gen M5/6. Still kind of a bummer you can't have auto-blip when in Normal mode since I suspect that's what I'd want for track driving (unless they've made that mode intentionally sluggish rather than simply linear), but who knows, breaking auto-blip out as an independently configurable option may arrive in the future either from the factory or aftermarket.
