Same situation, but on a motorcycle (Just for reference/comparison of what caused this crash):

He was just going to fast for the road, braked, understeered off the road. Maybe and hopefully he learned something here.

I know the guy personally who was driving and he was pushing it more since it was the second pass but the reason he went off was because of basically bald tires up front. He said he hit the brakes when he felt the front tires loose grip so he braked to at least slow down the impact.

so when you go into a corner too fast, you have no choice but to keep on the throttle and make that turn without braking?

you would understeer depending on your suspension setup or either oversteer due to entering too fast with rear tires not having enough grip and you will have to countersteer to correct..

lifting the throttle just increases oversteer
