YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO: MANBY MOTORPLEX FOR SALE
Fancy buying your own track? Manby Motorplex is on the market and needs a saviour...
And it could all be yours for £3.5m, ono.
The site, which includes 100 acres of off-road tracks, 25 acres of hard standing, the 2.3-mile perimeter track, an airstrip and 300 acres of, it says here, 'prime agricultural land' could be sold off in separate chunks should an operator want to pick up just the motorsport side and Tointon is keen to see this survive in new hands. OK, so there is the small issue of the occasional unexploded bomb being dug up from time to time but don't let that put you off if you're interested!
Interested parties can contact the estate agents here. Raising the question, what's it to be: a home counties mansion with heated, air conditioned outbuildings in which to store your collection of supercars? Or a large portion of Lincolnshire with a ready-made track upon which you can drive them properly whenever you damn well please? OK, it's a long way from Surrey. But that's what the airstrip is for...
Why you should: Your track, your rules
Why you shouldn’t: Unexploded ordnance
