However, news reaches us that police in Lodz, Poland's second city, plan to cordon off sections of the town at night to allow street racers to compete without speed limits.

Impressive. Loads of fun. But stupid. There is too much death on Polish roads already without courting more. Drive carefully guys.

I have raced most of my life , both cars and motorcycles...the only place for this is on the race track , not on public roads , where unsuspecting and innocent people can get in the way and get killed.....There are plenty of places , and clubs to do this properly....don,t do it on the street , killing somebodies child whilst racing on public roads will not make you a winner....

Yeah i agree. There shouldn't be street racing, there are enough Black Marks on Polish roads. Just go to the track, i'd rather race knowing none of my fellow countrymen are gonna get hurt than otherwise.

Thread attached on merging:
Polish Street Car Racing

LODZ, Poland: People drag-race on the main avenue here in broad daylight, and the police just stand by and watch. That is, until the commissioner steps up to hand trophies to the winners.

Street Racing in Lodz?

I saw a documentary the other night about street racing in Lodz, Is this true and does it actually happen? I'm talking about the police organised events as I quite fancy going to watch.

Any ideas how i can find out more?

There are plenty of places , and clubs to do this properly....

In Dublin there were loads of joy riders.
One program, that looked like it worked well was giving these guys a place to do stock car racing and other forms of racing.
Boys will be boys, so maybe Poland could use this talent?.
Stock car racing is very cheap to do and I would pay to see a load of maluks crashing into each other ha ha ha,

Only problem with malluchs is the crumple zone is from the front of the car to the engine,
