Favorite part is 9:12, through my favorite part of the track, where he finally catches and re-overtakes the Nissan sitting in the dust.
Its the way that plainly faster cars cant pull away from him in the corners that is most impressive.

Very little braking going on (some trail to bring the rear end back in) mainly understeering to scrub speed, but maintain engine revs.
