Pitch and catch should be in every 911 driverís playbook.
It is as basic as heel and toe downshifting to performance drivers.

Pitch is to lift throttle and rotate the rear while transferring weight to the front wheels.
Catch is to apply throttle to transfer the weight to the rear wheels creating more rear traction.

You may instinctively be doing it and not realize it?
You are steering the car with the gas pedal.

It can be for fun or to show off.
It can also be used for accident avoidance among other useful scenarios.

The pitch can be a huge second gear 30 degree rotation or as subtle as a 120mph 5th gear breathe to create a touch more steering.

Sorry but if you havenít mastered the pitch and catch in a 911 you are missing an important technique.

This is power oversteer.
