He either trail braked too long or came in too hot and lifted/ braked, which shifted the weight off the rear wheels. Also, he countered way too slow.
An instructor came into turn 7 at Njmp Lightning too hot in front of me and started spinning like that video (reverse direction). But he kept he foot in it and counter steered through the turn at about 40 degrees. He basically drifted through fast and furious style. We talked afterwards and it turns out he was the instructor for the skid pad...perfect.
