Street Racing in Karachi

Ran into these street racer last Sunday, watching these cars race is an exhilarating experience but very much unsafe and definitely illegal. Proceed at your own risk

    Very interesting! For some of us it was just about the "Need For Speed- Underground" and "NFS Most Wanted".

    Its good to know that people in Karachi / Pakistan are actually doing it. We need to promote these events on International Level.

    Its such an adrenalin when you gain speed, you just want more! Going zero to 200 in 4 seconds or so is impressive. But Teeth Maestro, did you ask him what it feels like to simply change the unit of 0-200 from KM to Rs?

    Ask them how does it feel to start from zero and go up to 200 Rupees in a "fair game". Ask them to do it in as much as 4 days!

    To fuel their "rides", they need to have the best of the best! Petrol, High Octane, NOS, boosters, exhausts, stuff like that. I wonder if they ever consider converting their cars to CNGs. I hope not. Well! who’s to worry, theres too much for them to "burn out" and put their lives on the line…

    Indeed, "khoon, paseena laga diya" Good going you dare devil street racers! :)

    Number of times in the family circle i overheard a phrase – App kam-eyee & Bapp Kam-eyee, said among the ‘BABAs’.

    When I 1st asked my dad for a car, he said ‘EARN’ it., till then use the family one that too when it is free from family, and use with driver., Time went by..So did I, then rivers flooded and passed under the bridges..

    Few years later back home I did not asked, I bought one of my own brought home with "applied for registration" and gave keys to my dad. Thats yours from ME.
    – –

    Am sure 80% of those who are into this Racing, have CARS from their Parents, not from their Blood & SWEAT money.

    BETTING is what they do on these occassion and at times there has been deadly accidents, – Booz & Drugs ??? Only heard it, so, I wish both these things are non-existant at the venue.

    Question is – WHO IS RESPONSIBLE? TO….. Control it, TO….. Make it Legitimate Creative Hobby,………. TO Channelise it so that nothing Illegal happens,…… TO ENSURE That Safety of Riders & Vehicles is not compromised… !

    Cheers !

    I once owned a Nissan 280ZX T – Top, Under rain flip flop of wipers on the windscreen., Pathana Khan Kafee a music from other world altogether, loud & out, use to ditch Radar zones at 80+ MPH (140 KP/H) between Virgina & Maryland :)

    Nice video if you ask me. I think they should give it some legal standing!

    LOL Ive seen this video so many times. Sad state of affairs, as stickers and lights don’t add horsepower.
