[[WMG: Crash FM is a pirate station.]]
This is especially evident in Burnout 3, in which interference can be heard frequently. This is most likely the driver the player is playing as switching stations, as Crash FM has to change channels often to avoid having their location be triangulated by the Interpol. Starting with Revenge, the signals were encoded enough that the Interpol could no longer triangulate their position.

[[WMG: The "sanctioning body" is actually a massive criminal/terrorist organization.]]
Known as the "Burnout Racing Series", all of the events in all of the games are some form of gang activity/terrorist attack:

* Burnout (the first game) represents the beginnings of the BRS, with a miniscule driver of roster and only four cars that could have been stolen. The boost system was very rudimentary, and the police took alot more notice.
* 2: Point of Impact represents when the BRS started becoming more dangerous, with terrorist bombings at busy intersections. The police started actively chasing, arresting, and in some cases, killing Burners.
* 3: Takedown represents the turning point of the BRS. The organization was able to get a pirate radio station called "Crash FM" up and running (see above theory), drivers were given free reign to wreck each other, the boost system was greatly improved, and the events became so utterly brutal, police departments stopped trying. Most people now fear going out on the road, but those who do know they may be the next to be caught in the crossfire of a Road Rage or a Crash event.
* Revenge represents the zenith of the brutality of the BRS. For one thing, all of the cars used by Burners were given titanium-reinforced front ends, allowing them to ram into small vehicles travelling in the same direction. Rush hour became a mass genocide in many locales, and the Crash events started to resemble terrorist bombings in the Middle East.
* Legends represents the police modifying their cars to be able to keep up with Burners.
* Dominator represents the BRS undergoing budget issues, so they briefly return to the older ways, with the older boost system, the unreinforced front ends, and Burnouts.
* Paradise represents the ultimate form of the BRS, with Burners set loose on Paradise City to race and terrorize the populace. The PCPD eventually starts an extermination campaign, bringing an end to the BRS' presence in Paradise City.
* CRASH! is not canon.

Think about it, there's nobody driving them. As far as we can tell, the whole world is made out of cars that drive themselves around. The ones participating are part of a DeathRace-like suicide challenge being filmed for the amusement of the rest of the Cars world.

The suits and helmets may actually be a glitch, Burnout could actually be highly illegal street racing, and hundreds, if not thousands of people die in the races. Including the drivers themselves. The construction workers don't care, the Police don't care, only the Paramedics and Firefighters care, therefore, the towns in Burnout 3 are Morally corrupt anarchies.

This also counts for {{Fridge Horror}}.

[[WMG: Burnout 3 is actually actors in a movie.]]
If you look closely at the Civillian cars in Burnout 3, even they have Nomex suits and Helmets on, from this, we can assume that Burnout 3 is actually an upcoming movie in the in-game universe, being filmed. DJ Stryker is the narrator of the film.

[[WMG: Paradise City is Pacific City from ''{{WMG/Crackdown}}'' before it separated from the mainland, as well as Oceania from ''{{WMG/Extreme-G}} 3'' and Big Blue from ''VideoGame/FZero GX'']]Think about it for a second. Paradise City is overrun with street racers. Law enforcement is non-existent. Criminals of all types are likely using the racers to take control of the streets. The three urban districts will eventually become the main districts of Pacific City: Harbor Town will become The Den, run by [[TheMafiya The Volk]]; Palm Bay Heights will become La Mugre, home to [[TheCartel Los Muertos]]; and downtown will become The Corridor, run by the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Shai-Gen Corporation]]. Criterion, the developers of the [[{{Burnout}} Burnout series]] neglects to show us [[ViceCity the dark side]] of Paradise. Crime will take over, and only [[MegaCorp The Agency]] will be able to set things right. The other two districts of Paradise City will remain attached to the mainland, leaving only the urban sectors to become Pacific City. Some time a few hundred years later, it's been carried so far out to sea that the mainland is no longer visible. The city is then converted into a tourist attraction, becoming Oceania, as seen in ''{{WMG/Extreme-G}} 3''. A couple hundred years after that, it will be converted into an ocean based industrial complex, becoming Big Blue, as seen in ''VideoGame/FZero GX''.

That explains why there's nobody driving them (they are robots in disguise), why they can rocket boost and regenerate their boost supply (they use energon-powered thrusters), and most of all, how they can regenerate themselves after they crash (they merely retransform to their originary shape).
