ASTANA, Kazakhstan, July 28 (UPI) -- A drift racer in Kazakhstan made his 5-year-old son into a viral star by taking him for a high-speed spin and filming his reaction with a dashboard camera.

Anton Avdeyev posted a video to YouTube showing his 5-year-old son, Timofey, screaming with joy -- or possibly fear -- while taking a high-speed drift around the Mobilex racetrack in a Toyota JZ86 Gorilla Tru.

The father/son duo end their ride with a high five.

Avdeyev said the video wasn't Timofey's first time in a drift car -- previous videos show the boy at 4 and 3 years old taking similar rides with his dad.

Another proud father, aerobatic pilot Raphael Langumier in Quebec, Canada, recently took his 4-year-old daughter for a flight and recorded her enthusiastic reaction to his midair tricks and maneuvers.
