There are certain activities that lend themselves especially well to father-son bonding.
And a day spend cooing over a collection of luxury sports cars would certainly fall into that category.
Chris Evans and his three-year-old boy Noah looked as though they were having the time of their lives as the radio star exhibited his multi-million pound Ferrari collection in Berkshire yesterday.
Wait 'til you get your license! Chris Evans bonded with his son Noah as he auctioned the use of his Ferrari collection for Children in Need today
Careful on the paintwork! Noah sat on top of one beautiful car parked at Longleat House in Wiltshire
Chris was generously loaning the vehicles to Children in Need, who auctioned off the use of them for scenic day road trips.
He handed over the keys to five of his Ferraris which were added to further six loaned for the event, which has raised in excess of 1.5 million for Children in Need.
The cars were driven from Chris's Berkshire home through various landmarks including Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire.
Generous: Chris handed over the keys to five of his Ferraris which were added to further six loaned for the event, which has raised in excess of 1.5 million for Children in Need
Stayed together: Chris and his son drove down the beautiful road into Longleat in a unique Ferrari 599
Noah- Chris's son with his wife Natasha Shishmanian- spent most of the day with his father in a Range Rover.
Chris said of the occasion: 'It's been a great day, absolutely awesome.'
'Five of the cars are mine but I've been fortunate that some very kind people have loaned cars for the event as well.'
Resounding success: Chris said that it had been an 'absolutely awesome' day
'It's the fourth year we've done this and we haven't had any problems yet. We have a very understanding insurance company.'
The collection of 11 Ferraris included a 288 GTO, limited edition SA Aperta, legendary F40 and a one-off, multi-million pound 250 GT.
Richard Wheeler, a garden centre owner from Warwickshire, said: 'It has been mindblowing today. We've driven four cars and they have all been amazing.'
Scenic route: The group were lucky to have perfect weather for the day out
'We went to Pink Floyd star Nick Mason's house and saw his collection and also visited (former F1 star) Jody Scheckter.'
'It is great that Chris has trusted us with the cars. My favourite so far has been the F40.'
Fond tradition: This is the fourth year in a row that Chris has been involved in the event
