Five-Year-Old Has Priceless Reaction to His Father’s Extreme Drifting

Take your son or daughter drifting at least once a year - this is, perhaps, a must for any automotive aficionado who becomes a father. In case you’re curious about how such as session could feel like, Kazakhstan drifter Anton Adveyev has an answer for you.

The man has been taking Timofey, his son, for sideways sessions ever since the little one was three and now with the kid turning five, things have become more serious.

The sliding tale is now three years old


It all started back in 2013, when Anton recorded a clip of him and his son out drifting, with the priceless reaction of the kid making the video go viral. The father pulled a similar scheme last year. He had upgraded from his original car, a beater turned drift machine, to an Impreza WRX STI. And while his first clip went all the way to 2 million views, his second video grabbed 50 percent more attention.

Well, we are now in 2015, Timofey has turned five, so it was time to take things to a whole new level. This time around, we are talking about a proper sideways machine, a Toyota AE86 powered by a JZ in-line six engine and offering all the treats of a racecar, from the extreme-angle drifting steering to the stripped out interior.

The little one has left his child seat (not sure whether this is safe or not) and is now strapped directly into the bucket seat, wearing a helmet and a HANS device. To put it shortly, the kido tries to engange in an aural battle with the exhaust. As for Anton, you can clearly see he’s more relaxed, while aiming for even greater slip angles. The action takes place on the Mobilex racetrack, which is famous in the country.

Until we find out what the quality sideways family time for 2016 are, you can watch all three clips in the playlist below. Who knows? perhaps it's time for the two to switch places.
