This mansion comes with a full race track

Who needs a backyard when you have an entire racing circuit to use

With a price tag like that, it’s fair to say most of us won’t be able to afford the home, but it’s always worth dreaming.

The house was originally built for a motorhome tycoon, meaning it was built to the tastes of well, a motorhome tycoon.

Located in Thonotosassa, outside Tampa, Florida, the main residence has eight bedrooms, 26 bathrooms and two swimming pools – everyone knows you need a 4:1 bathroom-to-bedroom ratio when hoofing down some buffalo wings.

Built on a 36-acre property, the home also has a bowling alley, horse stable, two-story guest house, boat house, and importantly, 1021 square metre warehouse. This was home to the previous owners sizeable, and impressive, 80-car collection.

That’s plenty of space to store all the toys you’ll use on your very own race track.

Listed by Smith & Associates Real Estate, we hope a true motoring enthusiast snaps up the home.
