hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a professional

driver when he’s older.

Aged just five, he is already on the track.

At an amateur rally in the desert on the outskirts of

Cairo

last weekend, Tarek clocked a time of just over four minutes as he navigated hollows and hillocks on a desert course on the outskirts of Cairo in an open-sided buggy.

The winner came in at 1 minute 48 seconds.

“I jumped and I turned the wheel like this,” Tarek said, smiling from the driver’s seat after completing the race.

Tarek’s father and co-pilot,
