A ‘rich kid of Russia’ has been made internet famous after dangerously drifting his car around a historic square in the middle of the night.
Capturing the video via drone, shows the car drifting past tourist attractions in St Petersburg during a street manji.
It speeds past other vehicles in the street and drifts between parked cars while passing the Monument to Nicholas I, St Isaac’s Cathedral and the 173-year-old Mariinsky Palace.
A blog called Rich Russian Kids shared the footage on Instagram with a taunt for police reading: “Where is my ticket please?”
The footage was shot earlier this week at night in St Isaac’s Square in the historic city.
The streets are mostly quiet except for a few vehicles and the rally car tearing through the heart of the former capital of Imperial Russia.
The scene was captured by a drone that was flying just behind the car.
The Rich Russian Kids blog taunted police in the video caption, writing: “Well, let’s write in the press, write me a fine.
“Where is my ticket, please?”
The driver was praised by car enthusiasts and slammed by viewers who considered the stunt to be dangerous.
One Instagram user wrote: “Dizzying. But the risk…”
Another user added: “Why do not you have enough intelligence to apply yourself to useful things?”
The video has been viewed more than half a million times.
The guys got skills but when the likes of Donut Media tackle these kind of videos they do so on closed roads.
Stay safe out there.
