Aleksander Pelikański is an eight-year-old from Poland, and he’s actually the son of professional rally driver Mariusz Pelikański. 

Mariusz won the Polish Peugeot Cup in 2003, so it’s no wonder his kid’s got talent.

In the video, we can see Aleksander behind the wheel of a specially prepared BMW E36 rally car.

He’s sitting in a child race bucket seat, with an extension on the steering column so he can grip the steering wheel.

The pedals are also raised, so he can reach them easily.

He’s even kitted out in his own racing overalls, boots, gloves, and helmet.

Footage from inside the BMW E36 shows Aleksander drifting the car like an absolute pro.

You can see his left foot braking to transfer some weight to the front of the car.

He then flicks the steering to initiate the drift.

He even knows how to maintain the drift, lifting off the throttle to reduce the drift angle and adding more throttle to increase it.

The video, which was posted to Aleksanders’s Instagram a few days ago, has already amassed nearly one million likes.

Viewers were unsurprisingly gobsmacked by Aleksander’s ability, saying he has a bright future ahead of him.

“There are adults in their 30’s who dream of achieving something that this kid is effortlessly doing,” one Instagram user said.

“Damn bro, I can’t even drift like that in Assetto Corsa,” another wrote.

With the right coaching and support from his father, Aleksander is sure to achieve great things.
