Just came back from work and saw a whole heap of boy races around the Melling train station going on some sort of convoy - anyone know what the story is with that?

Could be a group of guys getting together for a drive or meet. I wouldn't slam them as boy racers unless they are skidding and playing loud music.
I drive a BMW e30 and would consider myself an enthusiast but I am still young so am I a boy racer?

Are you promoting driving fast to evade police? Because that's a cool thing to do?

Or am I missing something here.

Just wondering if you're new to the area.  Melling is where the boy racers hang out just usually Thursdays and Friday nights where they'll be out doing the usual boy racer stuff, being annoying revving cars up and playing loud music....all this until the neighbours get annoyed and the cops come disperse them for the night.

They've hang out there for years.  They're mostly harmless and can't drive to save themselves.
