If you watch the video, he just loses it on a medium speed turn with the back end giving up. It seemed unnecessary. A couple of questions come to mind.

1. I wonder if his rear tire pressures were too high?
2. What role if any did stability control play in his lack of ability to recover?


Having raced FWD, my experience is that a stab at the throttle in a half spin can help to recapture the rear end. I don’t know if that could of worked for him though with the turbo lag and stability/traction control at play.

Well I guess you can say though that the Type R is set up to rotate at corner entry. It certainly isn’t a plow box but beware what you wish for.......
