Tot Gear: THREE-year-old son takes his motorcycle-racing father’s £1.6million, 211mph Ferrari for a drive around a race track

A three-year-old took his motorcycle-racing father’s 211mph Ferrari worth £1.6million for a drive around the race track.

Zayn Sofuoglu – the son of former Turkish professional motorcycle racer Kenan Sofuoglu – is barely tall enough to see over the steering wheel. 

And it if was not for a specially adapted child seat, he would not be able to reach the pedals of the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, which does 0-62mph in 2.5 seconds.

Even with a price tag of up to £1.65 million ($2 million), there is still a waiting list for wealthy drivers to get their hands on one.

But race ace Sofuoglu, 38, – now a Turkish MP – clearly had no qualms in turning over his priced machine to his son.

In video footage of the track outing, Zayn is seen striding to the Ferrari in his race overalls before pulling on his custom helmet.

As he slides behind the steering wheel, he revs the engine before roaring away from the start line.

And as he puts the Ferrari through its paces, cameras inside the car show Zayn running through the gears as he takes on the bends and straights at the track.

The footage closes with Zayn emerging from the supercar and slapping his father’s hands.

And the source of his talent is no wonder, with dad Kenan holding no less than five Supersport World Championship (WorldSSP) bike titles.

Kenan also took part in a race of three supercars, a superbike, a Formula 1 car, a private jet and a fighter jet, who went head to head at a tech festival in Istanbul in 2018.
