Boy Racer

Boy Racer

Available on SBS On Demand
Since the trend of teenagers modifying their affordable cars with go-faster stripes, neon under-lights and dump valves really took off in the 90s, the media and public have been wary of boy racers. The government have attempted to force them out of town centres with CCTV, the cops spend their nights hunting them in unmarked cars and ASBOs have resulted in countless cherished Fiat Puntos and SR Novas being seized. Understandably, this has driven boy racers to abandon the bright lights for the industrial areas, country lanes and car parks where they can blare happy hardcore, jungle and bassline and pull off handbrake turns to their hearts' content, or at least until the police show up.
