My skid pad experience

Performance Driving:Autocross, Drifting, and Drag - MX-5 Miata Forum - forum.miata.net
took an autoX driving school yesterday and they had a skid pad setup. we did clockwise first 3 sessions, then counterclockwise. This skid pad was not smooth, lots of transitions in the 360 degrees. Now, my car understeered mostly on the CW rotations. the CCW rotations oversteered and if I'm remembering correctly, once it understeered added power, then quick snap to oversteer. this oversteer almost spun me out twice. So, I'm a bit confused...don't think this correct? I would think the car should handle close to the same on both rotations? but it felt like two different cars. Looking for feedback?

My NA 1.8l hardtop with only a race seat interior car set up...Tien coil overs, 4.00 on front, 4.25 on rear (ground to frame) stock bars front and rear, FM race alignment, miata 15 x 6 with Rival S 1.5, 29 psi air pressure, tire chalked marks looked good per instructors, air temperature 40 degrees
