Most of us have had to deal with the... interesting conversation that sometimes sparks up when you have to fix a flat tire and your rim looks like it's been through the apocalypse.
Some drivers simply increase the tip, while others pretend there's no elephant in the room, but we're curious what the 14-year-old behind the BMW in the video below will have to say when his mechanic asks about the destroyed rear wheel.

As you'll be able to see in the video, the teenager knows his way around drifting a car. The youngster sits behind the wheel of an E36 3 Series, pulling delicious slip angles while he's at it.

In case you're wondering, the action takes place on the Angmering track in the UK. Despite the overly broken pavement causing the cars to bounce all over the place, the kid stays on top of his game.

As for that mandatory explanation mentioned above, the video sees the young driver continuing to slide the car despite losing one of his rear tires.

Unlike certain forms of motorsport, such as Formula One, drifting doesn't necessarily require one to start at a young age. However, we're starting to see a bit of a trend nowadays, one that involves little kids in cars going fully sideways.

The latest example of this, which also happens to be the most extreme we've come across, saw an Iraqi three-year-old (no typo here) doing donuts in his father's Bimmer.

While such stunts are pure examples of parenting failures, we also have positive situations, such as fathers allowing their little ones to accompany them during their sideways stints.

Since drifting has finally gained the recognition it deserves, you should expect to see more and more of these tire-smoking stunts while the industry strives to bring us close to self-driving cars.
