Top Gear drives the Lambo Gallardo STS
Flat out across Italy in the extreme new Super Trofeo Stradale. The perfect day?

Now usually, the accepted way to deal with understeer in a mid-engined supercar is to back off and reckon on transferring some weight to the front wheels. Or, if you think yourself a hero with reactions like an SAS mongoose, add more power, loop the back round with oversteer, and pray that you have enough room to gather up the lateral swing before you use the scenery as a massive, crunchy-sounding parking sensor. Which sounds fine during a conversation in a bar, less so when imminently having an accident. Luckily for me, my foot sort of... fell off the accelerator in fear. Instinctively option one. Which worked well for a while, but got a bit... boring.
