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.
