What were you doing when you were 12 years old? Collecting Pokemon cards? Glued to YouTube? Burning ants in your backyard? Typical 12-year-old stuff we figure, so chances are pushing a vehicle to its limits didn't land somewhere in your list.

The kid you're watching above though, isn't your average, everyday 12-year-old. He's Iñigo Anton, the son of veteran race car driver Carlos Anton, and boy can he drive. At just 12 years of age, the younger Anton recently broke the lap record at Circuit Hill in Tarlac. We were there to witness the feat.

We'll have a separate video of Iñigo's record-breaking lap up in the near future. For now, you can watch him do a 360 degree spin with a front-wheel-drive car—making it look like a piece of cake in the process, we might add. Frankly, that's a ton of skill for a grade-schooler.
