You're correct about needing to brake on the uphill, but cresting the rise unloads front AND rear. The speed has to be down enough to give the car time to get its weight back down on the tires so it can be turned sharply enough to stay on the pavement.

"Flooring it" when the rears are unloaded as much as the fronts just induces oversteer instead of understeer. He didn't have room to deal with either. And given the choice of going straight off, or going off sideways or backwards, straight off is mo' bettah.
he had way too much speed going into that turn and clearly was looking ahead instead of at the next turn
