Scorcher in the rally scene here in India a few of these techniques are used pretty often, especially the left foot braking.

I know that buddy, But all that was limited to Rally/Race drivers. For instance, In the first video, they show you how to use Left-Foot Braking to maneuver a FWD road car in the corners thereby increasing the control over the car. A bit tough to acquire, But quite a handy trick for people who like to 'hit it'. I've personally seen a fellow-bhpian polishing his 'heel and toe' technique in our last Monsoon Drive to the ghats.
