    He is enjoying racing, only wants to play racing games and he is just over 2 years. My practice sessions have gone down since he wants to be on the wheel all the time :D

    Very nice and cute Abdul.
    Your son may end up racing with my grandson, similar ages, and he seemed keen on my SimRacing over the Christmas break.

    Thanks guys. They grow fast, soon they will be the new RDers. Bram that countersteer he has is fun to watch. He knows the words "Stay on track" as thats what I use to get him focused.

    Who is good already for his age. He is gentle on the steering and knows what to do. Impressed. :)

    Very cool! Does that steering wheel have any buttons for you to map the gas and brake to? Once you do that he should have the basics down... remember, the younger you are, the easier it is to learn...

    Now he is actually serious! Most young drivers like to wreck. Nice that he takes it seriously. :) And he is good, he only needs to learn the tracks. And best of all, he got respect of the other drivers. Look into 1st braking 0:35. He is looking like he got respect. Gold Medal! And also, in the end where he saying: What that come from? That is cute.. :rolleyes:

    Yeh that would be my 5 year old son.

    My 1 year old daughter keeps it on track better than he can lol

    He did do a lap at Brianza on his own though, including pedals. Not let him have a go in ages because of his 'wrecking'. Might get him back into now 'cause of you Ads lol
