Also, speaking about world events: what if there were some parts of the track where some kind of periodical event makes a localized storm appear, massive rain on the track, and then grass starts to grow thanks to the alien spaceship overhead shining their grass-grow laser on the ground. The result is that in that part of the track you have from time to time a patch of destructible items that slows you down. That might be used to slow down the leaders and the rest of the pack will have to follow its tracks in order to not be slowed down, what do you think?
Of course it doesn't have to be grass... it the spirit of illegal racing there might be road spikes popping in, underground gas pockets creating bumps on the road, and so on..
Oh yeah? I'm so boring that
