Mohammad Mehdi Afshar is not your average nine-year-old boy, as his off-road driving skills would put most average commuters to shame. Footage from the city of Qazvin on Friday shows Mehdi exhibiting his off-road driving up through foothills and across a river.

"My grandfather used to be an off-road driver and he taught me," said Mohammad Mehdi who expressed his wish to "participate in the world's competitions."

Mohammad's grandfather and coach Hassan Ali Ehsani said that his "record has been already marked in Iran as the youngest off-road driver," and he expressed his hoped for his grandson to receive support from international driving companies so he can "show his skill to the world."

According to Iranian media, Mehdi along with his co-driver and map reader Mohammad Taha Ehsani, have been able to register their names in the Iranian records as the youngest off-road drivers.
