The problem is that the part of your brain that deals with logic knows it’s flat out, even in a standard E-type like this. Just enter on the right line, steer gently into the apex to unsettle the car as little as possible and it will see you through, not with much space to spare mind, but space enough. But the other part of your brain, that responsible for keeping you alive, begs to differ. It can see how close lies the bank at the exit. It knows the curve progressively gains positive camber and that will try to pull the car onto the grass. Most of all, it knows there is no clear turn in point and if you get it wrong you’ll be lucky if the result is merely expensive rather than painful. It tells your right foot to lift, overriding the previous instruction to keep it nailed flat.
But then something unexpected. Behind you, a third party enters your calculations, and it needs evaluating fully before any decisions can be made. Its headlights are on, the Jag’s exterior mirrors are useless and the one inside the car vibrates so it’s hard to tell even what it is, let alone how fast it is moving. You are yourself doing well over 100mph, approaching one of the most difficult corners in racing and don’t really want to be focusing on something behind you. But you have no choice.
