Lol maybe but only 1 driver has made it to Formula 1. I guess they like to keep it to the streets. Another problem with organised street racing is that it attracts car thieves. I saw on a news clip that they will spot a car they want and follow them home.

go to Kosovska Mitrovica (Kosovo-Serbia, Balkans) and witness "Mitrovica roulet" because this is probably the most dangerous and craziest race in the world

"Racing is like sex, all men like to think they're good at it." It's only natural for people to want to compete at something like driving. Not everybody can do it in controlled environments, so instead, they do something stupid, which makes it all the more interesting.

the whole street racing thing appeals to kids when their young untill they see the financial part of what it costs to first off purchase a car, pay for the parts, and then the ticket when they get caught. ha i'm not gonna lie when i first got my licenses i thought my blazer was the fastest thing on 4 wheels ha with my 4.3 vortec but 80 in a 65, a ticket, court costs, points on my licenses, and ridiculous insurance on anything i try to buy quickly made me realize that driving fast just isn't that cool ha, now i go more or less for car audio.

btw- good call on the top gun quote ha
