This made me lol.
Who would have thought that behind the clenched fists of the iron curtain, old school russians used to gather on the streets and partake in hardcore racing! No ads on the cars, the cars themselves didn’t have hardcore, hi-revving engines….they were basically street cars (mainly Ladas!) racing against each other, with drivers struggling to prove themselves in an isolated, communist society. I find these photos quite cryptic and mysterious—-but in a very cool way!
