    Lightbulb Any Drag racing in HK?

    Hi!
    Was comin over to Hk very soon and was wondering if there are any legal or illegal drag races around town?(car drags i mean!) like the fast and furious movies?? would love to see them! or atleast where can i spot hot imports like the Supra and skylines? Any particular places where these guys hang? would highly appreciate any news on this front! thanks!

    no...in here, no one likes straight road racing.
    they all follow "japan magazine or animation cartoon" to fanatsy about racing.

    if you want to do professional racing, you may join the Hong Kong Automotive Association. they offer class to get race licenses...

    you can then attend racing in Macau (Nov), in South China (ZhuHai)
    and Shanghai F1 course.

    I think in the real world, nobody drives like they do in the Fast and the furious. To do it here in HK you would need to avoid all the taxis, and then there wouldn't be enough straight road.

    The underground racing scene exists here but it's exactly that, very hush-hush. Only those people who are in-the-know will be able to tell you where these things are held every week. Stuff like this is illegal here and drivers risk raids and crackdowns by the cops. If you're still interested in knowing more, try some of the car tuning specialist workshops where you'd get your fill of the eye-popping machinery that rolls into them for tune-up jobs. A little time and some discreet questioning of some of the younger drivers will get you some info.
