SMG does have its benefits.
Yes, SMG won't let you shift through a turn! The lateral G sensors know if the car is going through a turn and it won't let you shift. Very smart indeed!

From what I can tell, he was braking to get into the infield section but screwed up the heel-toe downshift thus locking up the the rear end. Ouch!
