I'm guessing it keeps the rev's higher for when you exit the corner but I'm no expert.

Heel to toe, it keeps the car within it's power band (Really handy on a turbo, as it 'eliminates' turbo lag as the car keeps spooling up....) it also helps you to keep greater control of the car in fast corners because of the weight distribtution , I do it when I'm really punting her round country lanes.....

Hard to master (I'm not there completely yet and I've been teaching myself for about 3 years, still a bit jerky on odd occasions, also hindered by shoe choise if you wear boot or thick soled shoes....).

before you blip the gas just before releasing the clutch on a down shift it is common practice accross the motorsport world it also makes for a smoother down shift

It looks pretty fast (well, cause it is fast but it's pretty simple once you break it down into simple steps)

I think it goes something like this:

1) Clutch in and brake at the same time with both feet
2) With the clutch foot (left) still down...
3) use your right foot toes (still on the brake) to pivot your heel onto the accelerator.
4) With your right foot heel on the accelerator, blip it to match the revs for the downshift
5) Shift down a gear
6) Left food off the clutch WHILST...
7) using your right foot to accelerate out of the bend
