Meet the man who spent everything to build his own racetrack (VIDEO)

Bucket lists are funny things, if only because they are so incredibly unique. A history buff might have a visit to Omaha Beach on their bucket list, while a music enthusiast might be angling for a trip to Graceland or a ticket to a Paul McCartney concert before they die.

Sports fans might want to attend a Super Bowl or the World Series or the Stanley Cup finals. For the auto enthusiast, though, the uniquely expensive nature of the objects of our passion – cars – makes our bucket lists considerably more visceral.

The idea of creating your own personal racetrack, though, is big – even for the most extravagant automotive bucket list. But that’s just what Richard Usher has done with Blyton Park, a British racetrack at the former RAF Blyton airbase. Blyton itself has been around since 1942, but racing started just a few years back, in 2011.
