Dhoom style racing?? That's a first!!

From what i've seen in the movie, i assume that "Dhoom" style racing is where a bunch of good looking models ride fancy bikes, pretending to be on the limit, when they're actually well below the legal speed limit, enforced by the law.

Hmmm...in a way, that's good. Nah, i don't think that happens anywhere.

But, if you wanna see some real action, check these places out.

I think i know what he's talking about.

These people on "BHAI-GIRI" (RX100) bikes with pencil thin really loud exhausts are seen racing each other on most evenings at carter road. They do all sorts of stunts...so i guess the name dhoom style racing comes from there.

It is very dangerous not only for them but even for the people who watch this. They carry out all this right in the middle of traffic...

I wonder where the pandus are when these bikes are doing these antics.

No theres no street racing heard/seen on Worli Sea Face but seen at Kharghar as Shan2nu gave the link.
But earlier there used to be group of bikers owning the CBRs and Kawasakis and Yamahas etc. and they used to meet up at Worli Sea Face and then continue their way to town. But that thing doesnt happen anymore. I think thats what you meant by Dhoom Style.
