Car 9 sequence

"A study of Malcolm Wilson's line theough a very loose sharp left hander on the Castrol 78. No ditches or ruts, so itis hard opposite lock all the way round. Malcolm was driving the corner blind .... and the power goes down for the exit. Note the nearside front wheel waving in the air. Ideally, there should be no opposite lock on the way out of a corner. The last picture shows Malcolm trying to get traction."
