Am sorry to hear about your accident... Are u ok? Hope its not too bad...
I'm no expert, but from the video it looks as tho your rear tire lost traction going into the turn.
Hmmm... Were your tires warm & did u notice any gravel at the apex of the turn? Did you happen to step on the rear brake at all in the slightest? Any of those will kick out your rear in a fast turn like that I think...
Your lines looked fine to me. I did also notice that you chopped the throttle just a little bit going into that left turn (8krpm 50+mph).
From what I've heard, u never want to chop the throttle entering or going thru the apex of the turn. And, i think what you want to do is smoothly & quickly transition from "maintenance throttle" to "exiting throttle"- meaning that you want to apply & hold enough throttle to maintain the stability & control of the turn and transition into quickly applying "as much throttle as possible" to quickly & smoothly exit the turn & stand the bike up...
The basic idea is that the more throttle exiting the turn the more the bike will stand itself upright. But it has to be done smoothly along with the right amount of lean and speed.
I've never done track yet, but I've gone to a few riding seminars and that's what they taught us and had us practice.
It looks like you're doing ok and just need more practice. The track looks like fun & really addicting.
