The problem of the young (male) driver is one which has plagued authorities and governments due to youths acclaimed propensity to engage in deviant and dangerous driving behaviours.Boy Racer Culture sheds light on the boy racer phenomenon through ethnographic research with the notorious Bouley Basher culture in the city of Aberdeen, Scotland, and the moral panic on the part of outside groups including the local community, police, politicians and media.

This book examines the creation of masculine and feminine identities in a traditionally male-dominated subculture through car-related rituals such as modding, subcultural media and events, and the quest for celebrity status via public performances.Boy Racer Culture challenges common misconceptions surrounding the boy racer, the problematic young (male) motorist and the car modifier. It will be essential reading for an international audience including sociologists and criminologists, particularly those with an interest in youth culture, subcultures, moral panics, car culture, anti-social behaviour, and the governance and policing of the roads.
