GT2 at COTA - it's not what you think

That was ugly. I vote him most likely to back his nice car into a wall at 130mph. A little AX and Performance driver training would transform this guys skills.

It looks to me like he was just overdriving the car. He kind of knew what he was doing, when the back came around he stayed on the gas, if he had lifted it would have been back end around In a second. But I just don't understand the elbow on the door, the grabbing the door pilar, the letting go of the wheel and the strange hand positions on the wheel. If he is an instructor, he needs to take some lessons.

Guy's got no insight. He's still clueless about his actions. He needs more than instruction!

Yep, I've seen em before. DE instructors are like teachers everywhere. Some are very good, some aren't. If he were in our instructor corps he would be required to spend some quality time with our CDI to straighten this mess out.

Fast, are you really a new poster, or just using a new name to hide your identity?
Since you only have 2 posts, I struggle to accept the idea that this guy is an instructor.

Here is what a smooth lap looks like with both hands on the wheel. No surprises:
2 Laps at COTA on 2/2013 in a Porsche 911 GT3RS - YouTube

***VERY LOUD so turn down your sound.***

Thanks for the sound warning!

Here's a 2:22 lap from the previous weekend in a ZR1 with the Drivers Edge group, despite traffic from the GT-R.

Porsche content .... I let him take the Boxster for a Sunday drive with his wife whenever it suits them.

New to this site, old to DE and track events. Trust me, he IS an instructor. Not a very good one, obviously.
