The GT40 is not an easy car to drive fast in the rain. Massively powerful, fairly heavy for a race car, probably riding on period correct bias ply tires, no power steering, mid engine with centralized mass wants to spin Very Quickly when it loses traction (hence the the frequent, large fast input to the steering wheel to KEEP it going straight at all).

None of the other GT40s on that track seemed to be having that level of difficulty.
