Boy Racer interrogates the motor vehicle as a symbolic extension of masculinity by examining the car as an opportunity to construct and express masculinity. The practice of hooning is closely associated with gender identity and allows for men within this subculture to perform and exhibit their hegemonic masculinity. In comparing this behaviour with the act of a child playing with Hot Wheels cars, Boy Racer subverts the iconography and rituals associated with this archetype of hypermasculinity.
