Fast hands avoid a Lotus Exige spin at Texas World Speedway (TWS)

An aggressive entry into Turn 8 puts me off-line after correcting the oversteer, and I consequently early apex Turn 9 at about 75 mph. I think this list here covers all the mistakes that led up to the near spin: 1. I allow myself to be distracted by my instructor describing something. 2. I'm aggressive on Turn 8 with some entry oversteer. 3. After correcting, I fail to notice that I'm out of position: I'm to the right of my usual line. 4. Still distracted, I start turning in using my usual reference point instead of adjusting and braking for being closer to the apex. 5. This makes me miss the apex by about 3 or 4 feet, and on a trajectory that will make me leave the track around where the oval track intersects. Realizing this, I add more steering instead of reducing speed. 6. Mayhem ensues. It was quite a challenge to keep the car from spinning. As if it weren't enough that I didn't have any throttle for the duration, my foot actually found the brake halfway through, which made the rear even lighter. However, the braking did also slow the car down, allowing me to finally collect it at about 35mph. That blue bendy thing flailing around in the bottom left of the screen is my leg trying to find the gas pedal.

Jason Hart: McLaren P1 New Texas World Speedway Track Record 1:45.837
This is a New Track Record at TWS for an OEM street tire, street legal, showroom stock vehicle. Joey Todd who handles the record keeping was on hand and verified the event, Thanks Joey. I must admit the Trofeo R's do very well, but the pressure the P1 puts on them makes for a tidy lap or you risk putting too much heat in them resulting in loss of lap time. The P1 hit a sustained peak G of 1.79 in Turn 7!!! Most impressive for a 245 front tire even with the uphill compression of the car. I am beyond impressed with the aero, drive train and overall engineering of this car. The point which gets the most respect ahead of all others is the owners desire to track this car with is a great opportunity to be chosen and trusted with such resources and for that I am also Thankful beyond words. I hope you enjoy the video if you watch it...J
