Chief Insp Steve Jones, who is in charge of policing in Cromer and Sheringham, said driving around the district was not anti-social in itself, but police had received complaints about loud music, revving exhausts, bad language and speeding.
He said: “I have not got a problem with young people driving their cars, I have not got a problem with them meeting. It's the way they do it.
“We have had allegations that they are using Cromer and Sheringham as a race track.”
Police identified the Meadow and Runton Road car parks in Cromer as well as Station Approach car park in Sheringham as favourite sites for drivers to congregate at in the evenings.
Chief Insp Jones said there were a number of ways the police could deal with the problem.
