And how foolish he had not buckled the passenger seat seat belt.
That could cause a lot of damage flying around like that.

Also his roll over bar would not do much to assist if he ended upside down. (His helmet should be a minimum of 2 inches under a line drawn from the top of the roll bar to the top of the front tyres. Anything above said line will probably disappear in a roll over and slide upside down

I've done a few track days and if you are not happy to leave your car in a pile at the side of the track do not put it on the track - the dangers are huge.

That said he is really lucky to have walked away
