Whew...intense little ride.

Does anyone know what that floor shifter handle does? Is it a braking mechanism? The video shows him shifting the 6 speed electronically with a button on the back of the steering wheel (you can see the digital indicator on the dash change as he hits the button). So what's the handle he uses on the floor?

That driver is way beyond talented...He's an artist behind the wheel. And that guy on the Segway scooter must have brass cajones. Yikes!
