I think you are right about just starting wider figure 8. Get used to the bike leaning, find the confidence in your tires.
I second this, last weekend I have done my 6th or 8th gymkhana day (imagine a japanese rider telling about the number of day's, haha) and only now I used the front break a little in a VERY wide exercise. Never used it in GP8 and I managed to do a 37,8 seconds GP8 in Donington.

By the way, I think a talent is rising in the Netherlanders:
a nice 34,7 seconds

I have promised some pics from our last Amsterdam day:
