Click the image above for more pics of the at-home race track

Some motorsports fans fly a team flag just beneath the good 'ol red, white and blue, and the lucky/dedicated ones have a project car in the garage. One speed freak has taken his velocity fetish to the next level by foregoing the typical driveway for a front yard racetrack. We're not talking about a deformed circle drive, folks; this is a large course equipped with FIA curbs at every corner. The posh Florida home is right on the water, and features what appears to be a very large detached garage. We're not sure what he races here, but if you check out the lawn right next to the track, it looks like someone was doing donuts after winning the race. Now we know where we want to live when we grow up.

      Wow that is a great house I wish I have few go-karts in the garage. It doesn't have to be use for expensive cars simple go karts will made this track a very fun place to live in.

      Does anyone know how wide it is? Seems too narrow for more than one car, maybe he like bikes?

        of course he lives in winter haven. A rich guy hiding on the outside of a hick town.

        Judging by the black streaks at each apex, this toy is being put to good use.

        Do want.

        No, It isn't better. Takes much longer to load. Not a great close view either.

        Typing that address into http://maps.live.com/ will give a much better view than Google Earth.

      In the sixties a local Porsche dealer had a country estate. The driveway, .7 miles was all up hill. It was also the site, once a year, of the local sportscar club's hillclimb. He always won his class.

      This guy is going to be pissed off once he finds out how fast this will spread around the web and he starts getting ricers in their Honda Civics showing up late at night to do laps.

        He's got a gate to keep out the riffraff.

        A couple of them will brag about how well they drove at a replica of the Nordschleife.

      This track looks a little small to be much repetitive fun with anything other then a couple go-carts, a case a beer and a large BB-Q cooking up something great... Sounds like a nice way to spend a weekend afternoon actually... I'm officially jealous

      I guess this is newsworthy enough to provide the entire internet community with aerial photos and exact coordinates of someones private property that will undoubtedly be trespassed upon by overzealous teenagers in rice burners.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I was able to get those coordinates in about 15 seconds of opening Google Earth, in this day and age nearly nothing is private any more when its able to be viewed publicly.

      As cool as this guy's driveway is, there is something very uncool about putting such personal details on a widely viewed site. The fact that they are publically available is no excuse, so are a lot more details you could easily find. Doesn't mean it's right to provide a forum to post them on.

      Hats off to this true enthusiast. And I am green with envy.
