Cool would people race on the streets ?

Before i could Drive i always saw street racers out. alot of times i would watch them drag race down the street or sometimes drift. well now, racers around me don't race any more. me and a few of my friends are the only ones with balls to race. people with bigger motors than me and i know will beat me never want to race either. it's deperessing. i understand that i could get in trouble, big time. but that doesn't really bother me. racing is fun. i'm sure any one could agree. i just wish people would race on the streets again. i see alot of rice around with no get-up. i only got some mods but my car isn't that bad. for any one who reads this thank you for letting me rant. i just find it sad that the only place i can race is on a track, and i could never keep up. but track racers did say that if i had a fast enough car i would be able to win a couple. so they don't doubt my skill and know around a car. any ways.. i just want to know that there are street racers still out there, runnin the streets.

The biggest problem I see with street racing is that most people that do it do not think about the fact that there are innocent people around that you could hurt. Just last week there was street race in Charlotte that ended killing 2 people. You have to know your surrounding! Pick the right place and time. And most people out there do not understand this.

And another little known fact, did you know that if you are caught you will loose your car? It amazes me how few people I talk to that know this.

Be Safe!

My main problem with street racers is that most of them don't even know how to drive properly and are thus a danger to the general population. Coupled to that the fact that they race on normal highways where there are other road users around at that time and its inevitable that accidents happen.

Track days imo are alot more fun as you can push your car right to the limit without the fear of cops as well as causing danger to other road users. The forces you experience when driving on the track is night and day(even for a stock 1400cc Peugeot) compared to driving on the road. I also managed to drive a few laps around Donnington Park last year and I must say it beats street racing any day.

Street racing is for punks who don't want to find out that their 12 second Civic actually runs 15s. Occasionally punching it off the light can be fun. Street racing, however, is retarded.

With all insults aside, I recently managed to co-drive on a scatter rally organised by a local motorclub. I thoroughly recommend doing this as its a lot of fun driving along country roads looking for clues whilst keeping an eye on the clock and map.

On Clarkson's Motorworld the driving test in India consists of driving down a road with a few bends and that's it! Definately not for the feint hearted driving in India - I rather use an elephant to get around.

if you pulled up to me and wanted to race and there was no bacon around with a fairly clear street, ABSOLUTELY , i know it can be dangerous but there comes a risk with everything and the question is how well do you know your limits?

Noooooooooo!!!!

Hello,

you know street racing is a form of illegal auto racing, which takes place on public roads. it can be spontaneous or well planned coordinated.
Main issue is with the peoples who are residing in that street or some what near to that, mostly kids they are just roaming in the street, or playing their got affected, sometimes they injured.
so i suppose street race organise with a proper manner, and having scheduled like people knows earlier and be sure no ones have affected with your enjoy.
Enjoy But Don't Disappoint Any One!!!

Have a nice time a head!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone knowing driving thinks that he is the most perfect and skilled driver on the street but it is just a miss-thinking. Driving safe is more important than driving fast. I never concentrate upon the racing my car on maximum limit, though I know a can drive much faster. Why? Because someone wants me back safe.
