Also another theory could be the brake bias. Not too sure. What do you guys think?
If this was Boris Said, he has some serious road racing cred. Maybe he did make a mistake but it's not like he can't drive a road course.

He first began racing in 1987 when he began racing in the SCCA. He got his big break with a ride in the SCCA World Challenge series in 1991 driving for Baer Racing, later to become Baer Brake Systems. Upon Baer's withdrawal from the series to focus on the manufacture of brakes in 1992, Boris got another big ride driving in the IMSA series in 1993 driving a BMW M3. He won the 1997 and 1998 24 Hours of Daytona and 1998 12 Hours of Sebring in IMSA. He also became the first American to win the 24 Hours Nürburgring in 2005 driving a BMW Motorsport-entered BMW M3 GTR with co-drivers Pedro Lamy, Duncan Huisman and Andy Priaulx.
