I guess the two correct expressions are "Lack of Experience" and "Insanely Brave". If the Defender had flipped over, the second expression would have changed to "Insane and Stupid".
I know IJC members witnessing the almost flip laughed their hearts out, some comments and laughters were captured on the video that you quoted, but its OK with me, because this was my first experience of this type of off roading and, despite the fact that I was driving a competitive vehicle, my lack in knowing the tricks of capturing such type of obstacles, made me think that probably with speed, which I am more used to, the obstacle could be run over. With the benefit of hind sight, I know now that I went slightly over board and, if there is a next time, would probably be a little more cautious. However, some of the lost honour was restored once I managed to scale the Patli Gali and IJC members clapped.
I am still for the 4 point seat belts and roll cage, I don’t think I mentioned helmets for IJC type of off roading. I am also strictly against the idea of seating children as passengers while attempting obstacles.
For myself, while driving at IJC's event I was using the normal seat belts with the shoulder strap turned on to the back, making it 2 point harness around waist for keeping me firmly on to the seat. Defender was not fitted with roll cage, which basically convinced me to abort the obstacle under discussion.

Yup speed was 1 factor, the track is soften up and in crawlers it gets stuck in the digging points, so choosing the speed is tricky. Nevertheless, it produced the best picture of the event & a moment to remember
