where do I even start?!!

  1. He wasn't wearing the seat belt 
  2. I think he is on two-wheel drive
  3. When he finally made it to the top he got confident and tried to do a side pass but he did not take into account the high center of gravity of his car. 
  4. As he was going down he was too fast and the approach angle was terrible

@Javier M you are correct on all counts. Feels good to have such observant people on board.

My main intention to post these is to educate people and not repeat the mistakes made by a few.

Drifting downward is not a good idea at all.

3. Not sure he was actually intending  to try a side pass, I think he had already lost control.

Excellent observation from a newbie perspective which shows your commitment to learning this sport with utmost safety.

Totally impressed @Javier M, keep it up.

Drifting downward and upward is not a good idea at all. On a flat ground, it's barely acceptable (borderline), if you know how to do it and do it within limits for just a little while.

Drifting should be left for expert and professional drivers with proper safety gear, clothing, helmet, and roll cage installed vehicle on the race track or completely cordoned off area for the safety of others, and not in public desert playgrounds.

No seatbelt, no sympathy. I hope he got a broken neck.
