Every track should have a turn like this. Watkins Glen has the boot. From the right-hander into the laces, the toe, the uphill, and the laces even into the slippery (in the rain) turns 10, 11, 12. Limerock has big bend and the downhill turn taken at 80-90+ with your foot firmly planted to the floor if you have a serious set of balls (Joe Diminno and Greg Amy will confirm and those crazy bastards are probably wanting another 50HP or so with that foot to the floor there ;) Monticello had a particularly unnerving part of the track where it was a high speed right-hand turn. I wasn't feeling very comfortable going through there flat-out because something just didn't feel right with the car. I felt like I was RIGHT at the limit of adhesion. Yet I continued to go through there flat-out. Later on in the day one of the corner workers came to me laughing as I was packing up the car to tell me that I was 3-wheeling through that section. No, it wasn't like your situation in a GA16. Nope, it wasn't even in an SR20. It was in a VK45... my FX!!!
