Although every residential project is unique, they do all usually fall within the same parameters. Space is always at a premium, and maximizing the use of that space is part of what makes an excellently designed driveway.
But some people are lucky enough to have a little bit more room than others. Houses that come with their own land are usually set back from a road, so the driveways at these properties can end up resembling short private roads. And, as ever, property is a very personal thing. All homeowners want something that isn’t just functional, but also says a little bit about their personalities, and affords them the kind of pleasure that doesn’t just come from a high quality hard surface.
Combine all these factors and what do you get? Well, you get racetrack driveway of course. In the good old U.S.A, the land of the big and the wonderfully ridiculous, this homeowner has obviously looked at their space, looked at their budget, found a generous amount of wiggle-room, and suddenly remembered a childhood wish; to have their own private Le Mans. While it’s obviously a car-safe surface, the temptation to razz around it on a go-kart (or even a ride-on lawnmower) must be immense.
It might strike you as a little over the top, or, alternatively, as one of the best ideas anyone has ever had. Either way, it’s always worth being reminded that your property is exactly that, your property, and if you’d really like to achieve something with it, concrete and a skilled contractor can help you make it a reality.
