Illegal Street Racing Gangs of The Dominican Republic

When he was introduced to a local scene that revolved around illegal street racing at breakneck speeds during the dark hours, he says he knew he had to make a film about it. Street Racers was the result of a few days spent with a group of young guys who risk their lives daily, racing along highways on customized motorbikes, blocking traffic and evading police in the process. The whole film oozes pent-up testosterone, with rival gang members, drinking, tales of rival gangs, street boxing and partying providing a backdrop to the main game of racing. And racing really is the main game; as one of the guys simply puts it, “I like winning. Nobody likes losing.”
