We're not really sure exactly what age was Ken Block when he started driving but it couldn't have been a lot earlier than 11, right? Now take a look at this kid right here, he's eleven and ripping race tracks.
The weapon of choice was, of course, a BMW E30  and what better car to choose to learn how drift? According to the Youtube description, the kid behind the wheels is  Stavros Grillis, an 11-year old boy that is preparing for the Drift Championship in Cyprus.

On the way to the Championship, he stopped in Thessaloniki, Greece, to learn a couple of tricks from Tasos Charkas, 3 times DriftWards Champion and winner of the 4th Round of King of Europe.

Now, we're not saying that we don't believe that Stavros is capable of drifting that car but the video does look a bit shady. Notice that when filmed from inside he car barely reach the steering wheel right and he wears an open helmet. When shot from outside, the driver's helmet is closed. Interesting.

So, in the light of this video and your personal experience, what do you think? Is this fake or real?
