Thanks for posting the videos.

Like you, I am somewhat at a loss as to how it could happen. At this point, I am less inclined to blame course design based on what the video shows.

Looks like gross driver error.

Tua -

Sounds like you guys run a tight ship. Fortunately, we don't have to worry about grass and walls. Your events are considerably larger than ours (we only run about 60 cars per event) and I can see how it would be difficult to police an event.

With that many cars, I can see why you would need everone to be watching.

I do like the idea of pulling a participant if they are shall we say..."overly enthusiastic". Right now, if that happens at our events (unless they are really being stupid by doing it in the paddock), usually they get a talking to and the suggestion of taking an instructor.
