Mandatory ... why?

It appears they had a roll-cage, it appears they had decent seatbelts, it
appears no-one got hurt, so why make it mandatory for helmets to be worn?

Why introduce yet more legislation in a knee-jerk reaction to an accident
type that few of us, in reality, will ever see?

I have no problems with people wearing helmets, indeed I often do, it's a
free choice after all, but to legislate for it is a ludicrous suggestion and
only allows further scope for even tighter legislation that will eventually
push us away from 'dangerous sports/activities' and back home where we can
be safe. There are more serious accidents in the home than there are
off-roading, are you advocating helmets to be made mandatory to wear inside
a house?

Presumably thats made form lots of different photos? (as its an
animated GIF file not a video). I like the big pause due to multiple
photos from different angles as it sits there just about to topple!

No, for those that share a house with under 4's, it's a cricketers box ...

Surprisingly little damage to the vehicle, considering. Good to see
the rollcage holding up, i've always had my doubts about those
half-cages people fit to hard tops, but it seems to be just as strong
