I hope this isn't a repost. I did a search and came up empty.

I found this video of left-foot-braking combined with heel-toe in the Elise.

<object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/obQcNoOSD5s"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/obQcNoOSD5s" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

I know about left-foot-braking being used along with the gas pedal to scrub off speed while in a corner. However, combining it w/ heel-toe looks like major pucker factor stuff! Watch how the right foot gets back onto the gas pedal. Amazing.

Excellant video, the art of driving, I have found that high hp cars make people seem fast who do not know how to drive. Plus alot of people are learning to drive on the track incorrectly using the transmission to slow there cars and not heel/Toe/blip downshift. I find it unusual that people are learning advance driving tech. and at trackday this type of skill is not being shown. Left foot braking is the skill I want to perfect next.

Quite inspiring, yet intimidating (to me anyway). This is from the "bending the rules" video with Andrew Walsh.
