Default Scary handelling

hello everyone I have just bought a 5exi I believe it was a factory race car it has a rover 1.6 engine and gearbox I took the car to Malory recently to a track day
Whilst I found the cars handelling round corners great apart from a half spin in the wet at the hairpin my fault
It feels very nervous at speed and when lifting at the bottom of the straight for Gerard's the car had a mind of its own I would like to upgrade the engine for mor power but untill the this handelling issue is resolved it would be pointless
Any help would be much apriciated
On another note has any one fitted a bike engine to a marlin thanks Brandon
