I believe so. With either way too much rear brake bias, a wanna be drifter in the driver seat, or a maniac in the driver seat. I believe it was a combination of all three.

I was purposefully using all of the track at my last track day, putting two wheels off every time as I unturned out of a hairpin. I didn't even notice I put 4 wheels off once and they flagged me in.

"Are you ok?!? You put 4 wheels in the dust!"
"I did? Can I go back to racing now?"

Where the hell were these guys' flaggers!!!?

I like when I see modified cars driven like that on the track, it gives me hope.

I know that vid...and it still doesn't change the fact that most racecars are build by engineers and mine was assembled by a half-drunk bureaucrat.

Back on topic: track events- now that OP vid is what I'm talking about. Even though the lead car was unmanageable and/or poorly driven, it was fun.
