UKs real-life Fast and Furious where boy racers speed supercars in balaclavas

British boy racers are brazenly brushing bobbies off as they recklessly speed down roads using high-powered cars bought on cheap credit, a new documentary has claimed.

Startling footage from “The Secret World Of Boy Racers: UNTOLD”, a new Channel 4 documentary, showed that young men with souped-up cars have been illegally racing down streets at speeds of up to 170mph, all while risking life and limb.

Joyrider gangs, who were spotted wearing balaclavas, reportedly meet up on a weekly basis to take part in high-octane races, all while streaming live to tens of thousands of internet viewers.

The group’s founder, who only went by Min, told documentary-makers: “Porsches, Lamborghinis, Ferraris we went from being boy racers to having some of the most expensive and fastest cars on the planet.”
