Imagine yourself as an obscenely rich person who decided you wanted a racetrack of your own. You’ll hire a renowned F1 track designer, obviously, and then lop off the top of a mountain to build your dream course. That vision is a reality for the billionaire CEO of the Magarigawa Club in Japan, an uber-exclusive private track overlooking Mt. Fuji and Tokyo Bay.

 

 

The track opened with a parade of supercars on July 29, 2023, and is open to members only.

Magarigawa is the first private track in Asia, and it’s impressive. Situated in the mountains of the Chiba Prefecture, about an hour from Tokyo, the racetrack boasts 22 corners and is appropriately challenging but not so much that a new supercar driver can’t handle it. A maximum of 20% of the track is uphill, and 16% is downhill, with 800 glorious meters of straightaways.

 
 

The club includes a climate-controlled indoor pit lane staffed by mechanics ready to attend to any whim of its members. After spending some time wringing out their favorite high-horsepower machines, guests can take a dip in an infinity pool, hit the gym, have a drink and a meal, and even take a turn in the karaoke room.

 
 

Apparently, the mastermind behind the Magarigawa Club wanted a track where he could bring his wife and two daughters, and he didn’t feel that option was readily available. So, he built his own, far away from neighbors who might complain about the noise.

 
 

The description of the facility on the club’s site includes several mentions of family events and options, including low-speed cruising on the track.

 

 

There’s a playground, dog park, and nature trails surrounding Magarigawa, and it sounds like a rich gearhead’s dream come true.
