Private race tracks aren’t unheard of.

Billionaires and millionaires generally adorn their private properties with whatever they want.

From John Travolta, with his own aircraft hangar and runway, to the Australian mansion with a soccer field, you name it.

Mind you, this one stands out because the race track looks F1-worthy.

And there’s a very good reason for that, because it was designed by Hermann Tilke, the racing driver-turned-designer who penned F1 circuits in Las Vegas, Jeddah and Abu Dhabi, just to name a few.

The race track was commissioned by the billionaire CEO of the Magarigawa Club, a luxury driving club in Japan.

The location is spectacular, overlooking Mount Fuji and Tokyo Bay, and the race track is beautiful, too.

The track is technically open to the public, but only to the members of the club.

Named after the club itself, Magarigawa race track is a 2.17-mile, 22-turn circuit with an 800-meter straight.

In order to make it more challenging and fun, the owner decided to add a downhill part, as well as a bit of the track that’s uphill.

In total, 16 percent is downhill and 20 percent is uphill.

In addition to the climate-controlled indoor pit lane, staffed with a permanent roster of mechanics, the race track complex also features an infinity pool, a gym, a restaurant and bar, and even a karaoke room.

Details about how much this race track cost its owner are scarce, but we do know that joining Magarigawa Club isn’t cheap.

The price varies but you’re looking at a minimum of $230,000+ per year.
