I brake before any turning takes place like we were taught in the PDS except where I end up coming in too hot every now and then and I definitely know my mistake at that point and the consequences of breaking in any part of the curve.

I mostly noticed my rear tires loosing grip a bit in a big sweeping curve while accelerating.
It was throttle steering through most of that part and the instructor felt the tires weren't "locking up" as well as they could.
To make matters worse the track was banked AWAY from the inside of the turn.

He mentioned adjusting pressure but did not say which way before he had to jump in his own car to grid for his laps.
