Those Porsche's drivers on those two turns who were trying to overtake the cars in front of them & caused them to spin out were absolute dicks. Worst ever.
Unless in a full cage car, crashes where you would need a helmet, usually result in death. Time is more important than extra gear. The rings official first response vehicle is/was a Nissan GTR with a trauma surgeon and a fire extinguisher.
At the BMW Mulhiem ring event, only the Americans wear helmets as is our habit here. European's don't bother, even in vert's.
