We tell a story that is still taking place ever since, almost, a decade ago. A time in which the Fast n’ Furious fever was spreading like wild fire; engulfing the minds of thousands if not millions of boy racers and ricers worldwide.
We tell the story of the Golden Toyota Supra featured in the bridge ‘jump & crash’ scene at the beginning of 2 Fast 2 Furious:
Going crazy with cars on public roads and running people over or getting chased by police in the process is part of Saudi society nowadays. This time, things have taken a GTA like direction, right on time with GTA V‘s release.
This video footage shows a bunch of Saudi youth being chased by police officers on foot. Suddenly, one of the fugitives draws a weapon & opens fire at the authorities.
The authorities claim that the fugitives are famously involved in street racing, ”tafheet” to be specific. Plans are being set to start some nationwide crackdowns on street racing all over KSA.
I just hope they get those youth busy with something to keep them off the streets & off them guns.

Noriyario is a great blog to directly check out some of the less significant motoring action in Japan. Those guys always showcase the stuff you don’t really see on all those big glorified automotive blogs. We just picked up this interesting post of what seems like the Japanese version of ”’Tafheet” (تفحيط).
Inoshishi (wild boar) Racing are a bunch of young guys who drift a bunch of feral cars in an equally feral way.
Here is a compilation of some of the best shots from the Fuj car & bike gathering. We managed to catch up with one of the convoys before they departed but unfortunately had to miss the action in Fujairah.
This is a long and inspiring compilation from stancenation.com. A nice reference and inspiration if you want to visually impress with taste. Those guys did have their artistic mind running as they worked on their rides garnished with subtle styling, colors and a focus on wild stance & shoes. (Warning: lots of VAG inside)
What you will see here is the irresponsible or perhaps a dumber side of Japan’s motoring communities. The guy is performing basic boy-racer maneuver and ends up crashing or potentially missing deadly crash. Suddenly, he turns back, drives away and pulls over next to the camera proud about damaging his Civic.
Underground street racing is not uncommon in Japan but I wouldn’t consider this a worthy feat to be proud of. That was stupid…
More photos from the Uaeboost’s JDM Meet. Members from various car communities have attended and it was nice to see that things turned out well for this gathering. In hopes there will be more action and interest in the future.
