Jumping on & off the brakes on corner entry unsettles the car, so you can use the Scandinavian Flick technique to get the car round the corner. It's particularly effective on gravel and loose surfaces.

You wouldn't see it in the WRC nowadays cause the cars are so responsive, but you still see it a little bit. Here in Ireland it's used a lot as people use Mk2 Escorts a lot, Frank Kelly being one notable user of that technique.

Yeh, I can see why he was doing it, and i assume he needed to be extra aggressive because of the studs, it just looks odd and i,ve never noticed anyone do it before. I will take a look at Frank Kelly, though it doesn,t seem to hurt his pace!
