There is a whole semiprofessional illegal racing circuit in the city. All major criminal groups, including the police, are involved in it. Those races usually take part in the worst areas of the city where it is normal for the police not to solve the problems.
These races, in addition to moving a large amount of black money, are producing more and more victims. The pilots mostly gang members, do not have any regard to run over any passerby who gets in their way, the most important thing is to win. They are just not betting their gang’s money, they are betting their soul.
