Father-son bonding is important, and if dad's a car guy, he may choose to hit local autocross track on some weekends. It's hard to think of a more fun place for a kid and his pop to spend a little quality time together. Clearly, the owner of this Chevrolet Corvette Z06 agrees. He's sharing his passion for cars with junior by popping a helmet on his noggin, strapping him into the passenger seat, and hitting the course.

When this little guy grows up and does likewise with his own kids, he'll always remember when and where that seed was planted. Click past the jump to watch the family fun unfold.

      Glad to see that he gave the kid proper protection (kudo on the neck brace). He is much more responsible than that R8 sypder- driving asshat with the kid we saw a while back

      + all of the votes for dad of the year! That neck brace was a great move.

        strapping your child into your car when there is a drunk lowlife flying down the road is more dangerous, this is in a controlled enviornment...I'd rather an accident with trained pro's a minute away...not 20 like most emt's......besides... a little brain damage never hurt no one no how :D

        It's on a track where it is safer than on the road.

        Umm, the address kind of gives away that this is just a spammer. Pretty sure he/she doesn't really give a hoot about kids and autocross.

        Totally disagree, you teach kids to be responsible and learn the car this way. People who drive stupid don't understand how dangerous cars are because they never took their cars over the limit. Auto Crossing and other forms of legal Auto events lets you take your car over the edge and you learn / respect the car. I used to Auto Cross in High School and it was so great but at no point did I ever want to put my friends / public lives in danger on the highway because I knew how easy it is to lose control and kill.

      My Dad would do that stuff FOR me when I was a little tot. Not is some high engineered Vette but a 327 small block Muncie m-22 4:11 posi 55 Chevy with drum brakes and a dirt road. All yall who think this was wrong never had a good time in a car. Our adventures on the dirt roads in MS., made the WRC guys look like wimps. Never saw them hold a beer between their knees while grabin a gear and then taking a swig. That kid will love his dad for forever. Nothing brings a father and son together like tire smoke and Cam2.

      Not to be the fun police, but what autocross let this happen? Every one I've been to (SCCA, BMWCCA, and PCA) all have rules that require the passenger be at least 16 so they're not being flung around the car like this.

        The St.Louis SCCA Solo branch allows 12 and up kids to ride with at any time. It used to be stricter, but they've relaxed the rules a lot lately. I've taken my 13 year old brother on rides with me, he loved it! Now I just have to convince my mom to ride with me so she stops saying I drive like a maniac on the streets. Heh.
