Where's your left foot while you're driving? Hard to tell with the camera angle, but it looks like it's between the brake and the clutch?

Nope, ball of the foot is on the dead pedal Steve. Have my leg at a rather delivery ward angle there so it's not in the way of the wheel. Really, really need a smaller steering wheel...

I notice your hands are pausing mid corner and then unwinding and turning in very quickly.
To drive more smoothly focus on beginning to turn in slightly sooner but more slowly and begin to unwind the steering wheel sooner and more slowly. Also consider releasing the brake slightly earlier but slower to slightly trail brake during the initial part of the turn in. This will smoothen the transition between straight line braking and maximum turning to stay on the outer edge of the friction circle. Let me know what you think and how it feels when you try it.
