Oversteer recovery fun at Infineon Raceway

I went to Infineon for the first time ever today. Had a complete blast. Just thought I'd share my fastest lap of the day + an entertaining moment during the same session.

Good editing great driving. That was a major slip angle.

Good save! As you crest 3A, the back end does get a little light. You gotta be really smooth when applying the throttle. I've seen cars go off on the inside there and the result is usually not pretty.

Just a gopro. Grabbing data with a solo dl and adding visualization at home.

Nice butt pucker video. That's a hairy corner ;-)

So would it be bad to let off the throttle in that situation? it seems like you gassed it and swung the other way a bit.

I have only driven there with awd which was easy. I am considering leaving the car on MDM when I drive there next with the e90.
