Video: 11-year old hoons an Audi R8 on grass

Taking all the questions of parental responsibilities out of the equation, you have to give some props to this young 11-year old boy and his rather impressive skills in the art of hooning.

As the video shows, this kid was given the chance to get behind the wheel of an Audi R8, probably with an adult’s consent considering that somebody had to hold that video camera as it was recording.

A part of us is very impressed at the hooning skills of this young kid. There’s a good chance that he’s yet to hit puberty, but he’s already got his throttle-oversteering skills down pat. But as responsible adults, we couldn’t help but cringe at the sight of somebody so young doing something inherently dangerous as this. Heck, he didn’t even fasten his seatbelt before he started destroying those patches of grass.

Sure, it’s an empty field, but a sense of responsibility should still be in play here. if you’re going to let somebody that young hoon a car like the R8, the least you can do is make sure that he’s got his seatbelt on. Better if you get inside the car with him. Best if you don’t let him do it at all.

Other than that, sick skills, young buck!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Well, that was tough you know. He is just eleven years old. The one doing the video is a man with a stripe dress. Hehe. I saw a reflection from the body of the car. By the way, I can say that the little guy has a talent.

I would say that his skill is really impressive! No doubt on what will be the future of this young kid. At the age of 11, he really excel on drifting this technique is so difficult to learn even in grown up like me. I bet his parent is so proud of him.

IMO, I think his parents are the one who capture the video for I have seen a shadow of two people in the side body of the car. Hmm. I think they are so excited that they have forgot to remind the kid to wear the seat belts.

That young little boy will surely be a good drag racing driver soon. I think his parents will get angry if he will drive this on the road. Possible accidents may occur and since he is still young, he needed the consent of his parents.

That is a future car racer I think. I was amazed how the boy really did a donut on Audi R8. But I think it will be more cooler if they tested in on the road.

Wow! It’s kinda scare me since a boy really rides a car!.. It was so amazing to watch how a child ride an Audi R8. However, always be noted that these act should have an adult consent!. Okay!..

Yes, there is two adults that accompanied the kid, wearing pink t-shirt according to the image reflection that I have seen near the fender of the car. Agreed, they should first teach the kid about safety.. I doubt that the kid knows about airbags..

Impressive skill! Not all kid with the same age could handle such a high speed performing vehicle like the R8. However, before anything else its better to teach first this starter about the basics of safety.. I haven’t seen him fasten the seat belt.
