GTA 5 has been entertaining fans for almost a decade. A game to be relevant so many years after launch is unheard off. Grand Theft Auto 5 owes that to its Online mode and the modded RP servers. RP servers let gamers roleplay as whomever they want. The world of roleplay is vast and virtually limitless.
Gamers can do whatever they want on an RP server as long as they choose to back it up with proper roleplay. Races are very common on these servers. Over the years, the races created by Rockstar have become repetitive and bland. There are gamers who create races in-game, but the modded ones are better.
This article talks about the best racetrack mods compatible with FiveM servers.
