Have seen a couple of Red or instructor cars go off there and end up in the tires.
Hmm, maybe THAT'S why a Corvette in Red went basically straight off at the end of the T3-4 straight running CCW -- and during the warmup lap!

By the time you've reached T15 you're on your third fairly quick and substantial weight transfer, so I can definitely see how a pendulum rear-end and probably coming into T13 too fast and sticking with it rather than adjusting could end up being a real problem by the time you get to T15.
