“I’m not good at engineering so it’s a challenge,” he said.

The track also has a “Monaco Grand Prix“tunnel and replica of the famous Dunlop Bridge at Donington Park.

Tony has almost 200 cars and bicycles to race on it.

Extremely detailed track featuring floodlights, safety fences and billboards.

He even has a 1:32 scale plastic model of his own making on the side of the course.

Tony said: “My parents bought me a Scalextric bike when I was a kid but I quickly got bored of it because when you’re that age you can’t ride the bikes.

“However, about 20 years ago, my girlfriend bought me a motocross Scalextric game because she knew I loved racing, and that’s where it came from.”
