    Oh, no, not at the entry of 1. At the exit right by the turtles, and another much smaller one at the exit, middle of the track, at the end of the new patch. Was using that one all Sunday to try and get a little traction.

    Although, just watched again, I don't really see the bump/head bob you are talking about?!?!?!?

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    There is always a reason, it is simple physics.

    Of course but sometimes trying to figure out what happened in that tenth of a second is challenging

    Or like in the book "The Art of Racing in the Rain". Make the car intentionally start to slide in a manner you can control, instead of the car surprising you with an unpredictable slide.

    yeah i know that driver - he's known to be fast, but aggressive and unstable.

    He was the guy driving the Acura TL in the first (?) GT race this year. He goes off a lot.

    He's correcting to get in line behind the BMW and the car never does settle there. He makes a correction immediately before it comes around. He knew there was stuff going on, just didn't figure it out.

    Yeah I've just watched it a again. And there is definitely some correction happening right before he starts to counter steer. I wonder if the car never really settled after cresting, he had steering input at the crest too.

    One problem with cameras attached to the car is you really can't tell if the suspension is unsettled or what. From the point of view of the camera everything looks stable because it's moving with the car. Until it falls off...

    He's over-driving through 1 as well; he pushes it into oversteer twice consecutively, you can hear/see it. Easy to imagine that with the bank in 2 and the offline entry, the front stuck and the back got loose instead.
